3900 ITA for PR to Canada on 5th Sep 2018Posted By Webmaster XIPHIAS On 06-Sep-2018 11:06:49 AM
Today’s draw broke the trend of issuing 3,750 ITAs that was first established by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) on June 13 and characterized the six draws held since then.
Throughout 2018, IRCC has issued a set number of ITAs over a series of draws, and then raised the number of ITAs by increments of 250 or 500. Draw sizes began at 2,750 at the start of 2018 and have increased incrementally to the current size of 3,900 ITAs.
*The May 30 draws were program-specific.
The regular pace of these larger draws since June 13 could be helping keep the CRS score at 440 and preventing it from going higher. Larger draw sizes, and more regular draws, can also have the effect of lowering CRS scores.
