About CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) Express Entry Draw

As discussed above, introduced in the year 2015, CIC Express Entry system manages immigration applications for three immigration programs and to get considered for any of the three programs, an applicant needs to submit an online profile online to the express entry pool of candidates.

All the profiles are then ranked on the basis of the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) which allocates CRS score to each candidate out of total 1200 points.

About ITA Announcements

The Canadian government conducts the draw approximately every two weeks. Each drawing has a cut-off score, representing the CRS score of the candidate with lowest-rank to receive an ITA (Invitation to Apply) for a permanent residency visa in Canada.

Once an applicant receives an ITA, he/she is awarded 60 days time to complete and submit the application for Permanent Residence, which is also called eAPR (Electronic Application for Permanent Residence).

About Tie-Breaking Rule

Introduced in November 201, the tie-breaking rule is used in the event where multiple candidates score in the minimum cutoff score. In such a scenario, IRCC uses the tie-breaking rule to control the total number of ITAs issued.

The candidates who score above or at the cutoff score and submit a profile before the tie-breaking rule will get an invitation to apply.

Before each draw, IRCC publishes information about the Express Entry pool composition. You can have a look at the CRS score distribution in the Express Entry pool below:
