The Canada CRS score reached its lowest for 2018 at 440 in the Express entry draw held by the Government of Canada on 23 May. 3,500 ITAs for Canada PR were offered to immigrant hopefuls in this latest draw.
The 23 May Canada CRS score of 440 surpasses the earlier lowest score of 441 for 2018 in the 25 April draw. The same score was also repeated in the 9 May draw, as quoted by the CIC News.
The time and date for the tie-breaker for the 23 May draw have also been revealed by the IRCC. It was 6:39:40 UTC and 30 December 2017. This implies that all candidates who had Canada CRS score above 440 received the ITAs. Also, those who scored 440 and submitted their profiles prior to this time and date received the ITAs as well.
The latest Canada Express Entry draw is the 10th for 2018. It is also the 4th to offer 3,500 ITAs that brings the total number of ITAs issued so far this year to 31, 500.
Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada has also enhanced the sizes of the draws to 3,500 in 2018. It was 2, 750 at the beginning of this year and 3,000 during February and March.
Rounds that are offering larger ITAs are having the impact of lowering the cut-off score of the Comprehensive Ranking System. Alternatively, it is also keeping the CRS lower than the CRS for smaller draws that were witnessed in the last 4 draws.
The draw sizes have enhanced to 3,500 in the slat 4 rounds led on 11 April, 25 April, 9 May and the latest 23 May draw. This has resulted in lowering the CRS from 446 by 6 points to the latest 440.
