Express Entry draw figures for June 13, 2018 are below.
The twelfth Express Entry draw for permanent residency candidates in 2018 has taken place, with 3,750 candidates set to receive an invitation to apply (ITA), making the June 13 draw the largest so far this year. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut-off threshold for this draw stood at 451 points.
As in recent draws, a tie-break is being applied. As multiple candidates may have 451 CRS points, those who have had a profile in the pool longer are prioritized. Specifically, eligible candidates with 451 points who created their profile before July 21, 2017 at 07:01:28 UTC were invited in this latest draw.
This draw brings the total number of invitations issued so far this year to 35,950.
Unlike the previous draw, which took place on May 30, the June 13 draw invites candidates across all programs managed under Express Entry, including the Federal Skilled Worker Class and the Canadian Experience Class. The May 30 draw invited only candidates under the Federal Skilled Trades Class, as well as provincial nominees.
On November 1, 2017, the government revealed its Canada Immigration Plan for 2018-2020. It outlined Canada’s commitment to increase the numbers accepted through the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Trades Class to around 250,000 over the next three years, with another 184,000 or so new permanent residents to settle through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) before the end of 2020.
More invitations are expected to be issued over the coming weeks, months, and years, benefiting individuals and families around the world wishing to make Canada their new permanent home.

The Comprehensive Ranking System is a score out of 1,200 used to benchmark federal economic applicants against one another.
It’s a part of the Express Entry mechanism, which was established in January 2015 to process residency applications.
The score is used as a cut-off point in Express Entry draws. It is designed to project a candidate’s likelihood of being economically successful in Canada.
