The Canada Government held its latest draw for Federal Express Entry on January 30, 2019.

A total of 3,350 ITAs (Invitations to Apply) were issued in this draw. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for this draw was 438. It was the lowest cut-off score in a draw.

Candidates who received an ITA have a maximum of 60 days to submit their application for Canadian permanent residence.

With this draw, a total of 11,150 ITAs were issued in January. This is the biggest start in the history of the Express Entry system.

Candidates, who wish to apply, must be eligible in one of the following categories:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Class,
  • Federal Skilled Trades Class and
  • Canadian Experience Class.

Eligible candidates receive a score (Comprehensive Ranking System or CRS) and are ranked accordingly. ITAs are issued to higher ranking applicants in the draws.

For this draw, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) used the ‘tie-break’ method to select candidates. The ‘tie-break’ is a method of choosing candidates with the same CRS score. It ranks candidates based on the time their profile was submitted. The candidate whose profile has been in the pool longer gets priority.
