Largest Express Entry Draw of 2018

Blog posted on by Evelyn Ackah in Permanent Residence and Express Entry Permanent

Largest Express Entry Draw of 2018

On June 13, 2018 the Government of Canada conducted the largest Express Entry draw of 2018, issuing 3,750 Invitations To Apply (ITA) for Canadian Permanent Residence. The lowest Comprehensive Ranking System Score for this draw was 451.

The previous draws for Express Entry in 2018 had been around 3,000-3,500 ITAs. This increase in draw size is part of the Canadian government’s goal of hitting higher immigration targets over the next few years. The Government of Canada has a target of 74,900 admissions through the three economic immigration classes under the Express Entry System, namely: the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades Class and the Canadian Experience Class. For 2019, the target for these three classes of economic immigration is set at 81,400.

Evelyn Ackah and firm have been one of the most caring and considerate and most knowledgeable and responsive firms that we have had the pleasure of dealing with.

What stands out the most about Evelyn and her team is the level of care and personal attention that is generally lacking in other firms. In several situations and in times of crisis Evelyn's response and speed of achieving results has been most astonishing.

We are so greatly impressed and most satisfied. As for value of what we receive there are none that compare to Evelyn Ackah's firm.
