Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has issued 3,900 invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence in an Express Entry draw that took place on Monday, October 15. The minimum score required was 440.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) applied the ‘tie-break’ rule in the October 15 draw, which means any candidate with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 440 who submitted an Express Entry profile before September 18, 2018, at 11:06:29 UTC received an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

Candidates with an ITA have 60 days to submit a complete Canadian permanent residence application to IRCC.

Once in the pool of candidates, a CRS score is assigned to a candidate based on education, work experience, language ability, and other factors. The CRS awards candidates a score out of a 1,200 point maximum.
