Canada has invited 5,000 immigration candidates to apply for permanent residence in a new Express Entry draw held on December 9.

Candidates in these programs, as well as some Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), are given a score based on the CRS. Points are awarded depending on a candidates’ human capital factors such as age, education, work experience, and language ability in English or French.

The highest scoring candidates receive an ITA, which they can then use to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

The number of ITAs issued to date is the highest it has ever been. Canada surpassed its ITA target on November 18, when a record-breaking 5,000 ITAs were issued. There has also never been a single year where the number of ITAs issued surpassed 100,000.
