440 was the minimum score drawn onAugust 22nd,2018. It not only stands as the 3rd draw in 2018 with a similar minimalistic score but also continues to stay as the lowest drawn score till date. The score and size drawn shared similarity with the one’s drawn previously on August 8th,2018.
The Deadline Date of the draw was on February 21st,2018 at 11:28:03 UTC.Candidates with the CRS Score of 440 and above who successfully submitted their applications prior to the deadline received the ITA in the invitation round.
The core reason behind the CRS Score remaining stagnant at 440 might be the streak of regularity of the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada).Drawsheld since June 13th,were held regularly after an interval of 2 weeks each.
The IRCC has issued 3,750 ITAs in every drawn since June 13th.
The potential increase in the candidates score is through the Provincial nomination which includes an additional 600 CRS points.
The statistics bring light to the fact that the 2018 IRCC Draws were 54,700 ITAs over 17 draws. Similarly the 2017 IRCC draws were 54,487 ITAs over the same period of 17 draws. Hence, it shows an increase in the draws of 2018.However, statistics also show that, at that particular point in August 2017, 60,742 ITAs were issued.Hence, putting 2018 IRCC behind by 6,042 ITAs.
86,023 ITAs were issued in 2017 which is double the amount of ITAs total in 2015 and 2016 combined.
