Largest Express Entry Draw of 2018

Blog posted on by Evelyn Ackah in Permanent Residence and Express Entry Permanent

Largest Express Entry Draw of 2018

On June 13, 2018 the Government of Canada conducted the largest Express Entry draw of 2018, issuing 3,750 Invitations To Apply (ITA) for Canadian Permanent Residence. The lowest Comprehensive Ranking System Score for this draw was 451.

The previous draws for Express Entry in 2018 had been around 3,000-3,500 ITAs. This increase in draw size is part of the Canadian government’s goal of hitting higher immigration targets over the next few years. The Government of Canada has a target of 74,900 admissions through the three economic immigration classes under the Express Entry System, namely: the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class. For 2019, the target for these three classes of economic immigration is set at 81,400.

Many thanks for the great news. I and my family are extremely happy and extremely thankful for the devotion and sincerity with which you processed this case. It was a complex case and without your special attention, things might not have this great outcome as we have. We will be submitting our passports on Sunday to the embassy as per instructions in the letter and I will keep you updated on the progress. Many thanks once again and looking forward to see you folks soon.
