Canada holds second Express Entry draw in August with CRS 440


Jonathan Arias - 22 August, 2018

Canada express entry 97

An Express Entry draw held August 22 invited 3,750 candidates with a Comprehensive Ranking Score of 440 to apply for a Canadian permanent residence.

For the August 22 draw, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) once again applied the 'tie-break' procedure. The date and time specified for this draw was February 21, 2018, at 11:28:03 UTC. This means that all candidates with a CRS score of 440 and above who submitted an Express Entry profile before that specified time were issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

Individuals looking to immigrate to Canada through programs managed by the Express Entry selection system must first meet the eligibility requirements for either the Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC), Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC) or Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

A candidate's CRS score is based on information about their education, work experience, language ability, and other factors. All candidates issued an ITA on August 22 will have 60 days to submit a complete application for Canadian permanent resident status to IRCC.
