IRCC Issued 118 ITAs to Express Entry Candidates with Provincial Nominations

In the latest Express Entry draw held on 15th April 2020, the IRCC had issued a total of 118 invitations to eligible candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

This is another program-specific round of invitations issued under Express Entry, where candidates with provincial nominations are invited by the Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement of 808 points.

The tie-breaker rule used by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada was March 18, 2020, at 10:30:55 UTC. This clearly indicates that all candidates who have scored 808 points or above and had submitted their Express Entry profiles before the said date and time have received their ITA in this latest draw.

As per information shared by the IRCC, all the candidates who have obtained their Invitations to Apply for Canada PR were in the Express Entry pool and had obtained a minimum of 208 points on the CRS human capital factors along with a provincial nomination certificate.

An applicant earns points based on CRS human capital factors like age, education, official language proficiency, work experience, and more. Those applicants who already possess provincial nominations are awarded additional 600 points toward their overall CRS score, which guarantees them an ITA from the IRCC through regular Express Entry draws.
