April 2018, 12
EMAIL  Print A+


IRCC has issued 3,500 invitations to the candidates appearing in the Express Entry pool in the draw of April 11. The minimum CRS required to get an ITA in this draw was 444.

This cut-off score is two points below than the previous express entry that took place on March 26th


The present draw was a trend setter which has broken the record of issuing 3,000 ITAs. The Government has so far issued 21,000 ITAs in 2018. The officials have used the tie-break rule in this draw. The time and date of the tie-break was March 26th, 2018 at 08:25:40 UTC. This shows that all the applicants having a CRS more than 444, and those who scored 444 and had presented their profile prior to this time, will receive an ITA.

Eligibility norms

Accordingly, there are some eligibility norms for the individuals to enter the Express Entry pool. When they are successful in the Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Class, or the Federal Skilled Trades Class, they get a CRS score.

Multi-year plan

The immigration levels of the multi-year plan of Canada for 2018-2020, have a target of 74,900 admissions. They will use three economic immigration categories that are managed by the Express Entry system. The present draw was the biggest for this year.

Consequently, by using the large draws, the government can reach the high Express Entry admission targets for the present year as well as in the future.

Notably, the stake holders are watching the methods which the Government of Canada will use. They have a huge target in 2018 and 2019. There will be large draws and also more frequent draws also.

In 2017 April was a busy month for Express Entry. Three draws were held and candidates received 11,341 ITAs. The minimum CRS minimum cut-off score then was 415.


Many Provincial Nominee Programs now are having links with the Express Entry. Many Canadian provinces have used Express-Entry PNPs In 2018, so far. Taking the help of a provincial nomination, EE candidates can get 600 additional points in their CRS. Furthermore they can earn a good position to get an ITA.

The candidates, who have a Master’s degree, or work as a Software Engineer, and score well in IELTS, has a good chance of succeeding,.

This draw was large and exciting. Presently, the Government has high admission targets for the next three years; it can succeed by holding large draws.
