It appears that the COVID-19 pandemic could not deter the total number of invitations being allotted for candidates to apply for immigration. A total of 28,450 Express Entry candidates were issued Invitations to Apply (ITAs) in the third quarter of 2020. This is more ITAs than any previous quarter since the application management system launched in January, 2015. It also brings the number of ITAs issued this year to a record high of 78,350. Even in the second quarter of 2020 during the first wave of corona virus, Canada still issued 27,300 ITAs, which hasn’t been seen in one quarter since Q4, 2018.
A total of 4,500 invitations went to Express Entry candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement of 471. The CRS score requirement is the same as the previous Express Entry draw held on September 30th.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has been holding draws of 4,200 every fortnight since September 2. The immigration department has never had a draw of this size since February.
