Canada held its second all-program Express Entry draw in two weeks on September 16 and invites 4200 invitations to apply for permanent residence.
In this 163rd Express Entry draw, the cut-off CRS score was 472 which marks a decrease of three points as compared to the previous all-program draw held two weeks ago.
This draw matches the 4200 ITAs issued in the Express Entry round held on September 2 and ties with the September 2 draw for the second biggest draw ever. The biggest draw invited 4500 candidates and was held on February 19. This again is an indication that Canada remains committed to inviting a higher number of immigrations in 2021 and the following years.
This September 16 draw brings the total number of ITAs issued till date this year to 74,150 – a new record for this date.
