2019: Express Entry Draw will be Bigger?

If Immigration, Refugees and Citizens of Canada (IRCC) will issue more ITAs in 2019 than in 2018, the lot sizes should be expanded, or the IRCC should have more draws more often than the current raffle interval, which is usually every two weeks

During the last 12 months, the IRCC established a pattern of increasing drawing sizes that started at 2,750 ITA at the beginning of the year and then increased in increments of 250 or 500 ITA every two or three months to a maximum size of 3,900 ITA. This size then remained largely stable between September 5 and the last draw of 2018 on December 19.

While it remains to be seen what strategy the IRCC will follow in 2019, it concluded 2018 in a note that may be indicative of what is to come.

The December 19 express entry draw was held just one week after the entry draw on December 12, which had the effect of reducing the minimum score of the Comprehensive Rating System (CRS) from 445 to 439, the lowest minimum score of 2018.

The fact that there were two draws of 3,900 ITA each one week apart, meant that the group of candidates of Express Entry had less time to recover, which forced to reduce the minimum score.

In order to meet its goal of increased income for 2019 and 2020, the IRCC can carry out draws with less than two weeks more regularly in the New Year
