On November 18th, 2020, Canada held its largest ever Express Entry draw, inviting 5,000 immigration candidates to apply for permanent residence. This brings the total amount of invitations issued to 92,350 in 2020, which surpasses the goal of 91,800.
Canada is on it’s way to surpass 100,000 invitations by the end of 2020.
In October, Canada announced its plans to welcome over 400,000 new permanent residents each year between 2021-2023, 100,000 of which will be through the Express Entry system.
In this draw, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) applied the tie-breaking rule. This means that in case of a tie between candidates, those who had a CRS score of at least 472 must have submitted their Express Entry profile before October 27 at 06:18:11 UTC to receive an invitation.
