9th May-CRS Cutoff 441- 3500 ITA ReceivedPosted By Webmaster XIPHIAS On 10-May-2018 12:35:52 PM
A new Express Entry draw has issued 3,500 Invitations to Apply for Canadian permanent residence to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score of 441.Conducted on Wednesday, May 9, the draw maintained both the same number of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) issued and the same CRS cut-off score as the previous invitation round on April 25, which was the lowest CRS cut-off score to date in 2018.
The 3,500 invitations brings the number of ITAs issued so far in 2018 to 28,000. This is third draw of 2018 to issue 3,500 ITAs following a series of six draws earlier in the year that saw between 2,750 and later 3,000 ITAs issued.
It is worth noting that seven of the first nine draws of 2017 saw more than 3,500 ITAs issued. Given that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has set admissions targets for both 2018 and 2019 that surpass the target for 2017, this could result in draw sizes increasing, or draws eventually becoming more frequent, in the months to come.
