On the 25th of June 2018, Canada put across another Express Entry draw with the threshold of 442 and issued 3,750 ITAs (Invitations to Apply) for the permanent residency under all the programs (i.e. Federal Skilled Worker Program, Skilled Trades Program Canada Experience Class). In this (25th June Express Entry Draw), there was a drop of nine points from the previous draw (i.e. 451), that happened on 13th June 2018.
As IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) implemented the tie-break in this draw, the preferred date and time for this round of invitation were-January 28, 2018 at 21:06:11 UTC. This means that all the candidates who have submitted their profiles before this date and have a score of 442 or above are eligible to receive the ITA in the 25th June 2018 Express Entry Draw.
As you can clearly see, it’s no longer the fact that a high CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score alone can get you an ITA, it is also about WHEN you submitted your application in the pool. The longest-serving Express Entry applications will be selected first. In simple words, first come, first served!
What Does This Mean for Candidates Like You?
In the current draw (i.e. 25th June Express Entry Draw), once again the CRS Score has dropped low and the number of invitations have increased.

Moreover, the Federal government is continuously increasing the number of ITAs which may reach up to 4,000 in the upcoming draws.
