In total, 11,341 ITAs have been issued over these three most recent draws, and the number of ITAs issued so far this year (35,973) now surpasses the number issued over the entire year of 2016 (33,782).At the same time, the CRS requirement has tumbled from 497 just over four months ago to a threshold of 415 today — the sixth occasion so far this year in which a new record low has been reached. As a result, there is now a greater range and diversity of candidates being invited for permanent residence.
