January 2019, 02
EMAIL  Print A+
It was a new record-breaking year for the system of federal Express Entry, with the critical milestone of the 100th Express Entry draw taking place in the month of September.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada announced higher Invitations to Appeal during the year 2018 than ever before, with ITA's 89,800 to applicants for Canada immigration.

The record of 86,023 established in the year 2017 was surpassed in the last draw of the year, conducted on Dec 19.

In fact, the latest record came as no wonder has given the increase of Federal immigration levels for High Skilled professionals targets fixed by the I.R.C.C.

Targets of High Skilled Immigration













The levels target for the year 2018 was 74,900, rising to 81,400 in the year 2019, with a plan to attain 88,800 newcomers in this category by the year 2021.

ITA numbers are expected to rise even further in the year 2019, as the I.R.C.C remains to collect data on how the invites number relates to thriving immigration applicants. 

Express Entry ITA's Record in 2018

Although the complete yearly ITA record was broken in the year 2018, the record for the maximum invites in a single draw stands at 3,923 set on Apr 13, 2017.

However, I.R.C.C conducted 08 draws announcing 3,900 ITAs in the year 2018, which is the 02nd-highest all-time number for a single draw.

Immigration officials conducted 03 fewer draws in the year 2018 related to 2017 (27 versus 30), but still achieved to break the total yearly record. 

I.R.C.C’s current tie-breaking rule depends on the date of Express Entry profile submission got into its own in 2018, following in a further uniform set of I.T.A numbers.

Express Entry In 2019

In 2018, Canada observed the size of monthly draws rise steadily throughout the year, from 2,750 in Jan up to 3,900 by the close of the year.

It is unlikely 2019 will notice such a dramatic rise within the start and end of the year. Preferably, as the system matures, higher consistent draw sizes and the scores of CRS are likely to feature.
