The CRS cut-off score for FSTC candidates was 288, and 500 FSTC candidates received the ITA in this round. This cut-off threshold was the record low in CRS for 2018. This recent draw used the tie-break mechanism. Owing to the presence of many FSTC candidates with a score of 288 CRS points, the candidates who had the profile in the pool for a longer time got the top priority. All eligible candidates who had a score of 288 CRS points before June 7, 2017 at 20:11:13 UTC received the invitation here.

Additionally, there is a target of 184,000 for the Provincial Nominee Program candidates before the Dec 2020.

The future

The Express Entry system is in use since January 2015 for processing residency applications.
The score is presently in use as a point of cut-off in Express Entry draws. It projects a candidate who is likely to be successful economically in Canada. For entering the pool, the candidates must be eligible in one of the three - the Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, or Federal Skilled Trades Class.

Special feature

Candidates in the PNP streams receive 600 additional CRS points when they get the nomination in one of the Programs which is  in alignment  with Express Entry. They can thus get the ITA in a later draw of the pool. A candidate gets 260 points for being proficient in English and French, and a couple gets 270 points. The present Express Entry draw was the 91st draw after the commencement of the since the express entry draw.
