IRCC invited 3,250 Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residency  

In a new Express Entry draw for immigration to Canada held on September 14, a total of 3,250 candidates were issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score cut-off threshold for this draw was 510 points – a reduction of six points from the previous draw held on August 31. The CRS score cut-off threshold continues to drop as the number of ITAs increases.

Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) also applied the tie-breaking rule in this draw and the time-stamp was set for January 08, 2022 at 10:24:52 UTC. If more than one candidate has the lowest CRS score, the cut-off is based on the date and time they submitted their profiles in the Express Entry pool.
