When you complete your Express Entry profile, your online profile is placed with other applicants from around the world in a central pool of Express Entry applicants. There are no CRS minimum cut-offs required to enter Express Entry pool. CIC (IRCC) issues Invitations to Apply (ITA) to candidates who are ranked highest in the pool by a process commonly called a “Draw” or “Round of Invitations”. So it is important to score high in your CRS to be issued an ITA .
If your Express Entryprofile is active and your CRS score is equal or more than the cut-off score for a particular draw then you will be issued an ITA. From a candidate’s perspective ITA is basically a letter that you receive through your My CIC account.
Your ITAwillspecifytheprogramthatyoushouldbesubmittingyourapplicationfor,your CRSscore with breakdown and the dateby which youshouldsubmitthe electronic application for permanent residence (e-APR).
Completing Express Entry profile orreceiving an ITA is not a guarantee that you will be approved for permanent residence. Receiving an ITA is one step further towards submission of your formal application for Permanent Residence processing.
Your profileremains activeinthe Express Entry Pool for 1 year from the date you completed the profile. It may happen that you do not receive an ITA during this period. In such a case your profile will expire and you will need to create a new profile if you wish to remain in the pool for future draws.
