The number of Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points required to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for immigration to Canada through the Express Entry selection system has decreased to 433 in the latest draw from the pool, which took place on September 20, 2017. This is the lowest CRS cut-off t since early June. The previous draw, which took place on September 6, had a threshold of 435.
Candidates who receive an ITA have 90 days to submit a complete application for permanent residence. The processing of applications will take six months. Since Express Entry was first introduced in January 2015, the vast majority of applications have been processed within this six-month timeframe.
The latest draw brings the total number of ITAs issued so far this year to 69,420, more than double the 33,782 that were issued in the whole of last year. The total number of ITAs issued since January 2015 now stands at 134,265.
