Tie-break rule was applied in the latest Express Entry draw, the time stamp given being April 27, 2020 at 10:19:01 UTC. It means the draw prioritized candidates with a minimum CRS score of 757 and had submitted their profiles before the said date and time.

The pattern of regular Express Entry draws has changed significantly ever since Canada introduced restrictive measures on March 18, to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In the draws held since then, Canada has been inviting provincial nominees and Canada Experience Class (CEC) candidates alternately. The CRS score requirement has also come down significantly in the draws held for CEC candidates. The last CEC-specific draw held on May 15, Canada invited candidates with CRS score as low as 447, the lowest requirement so far this year. Instead of a gap of two weeks that used to be there between consecutive Express Entry draws held before the restrictive measures were introduced, some draws are now being held within a gap of just a few hours or a day.

With the latest draw, the total number of ITAs issued in Express Entry draws so far this year has reached 38,585. Despite the travel restrictions imposed in the wake of COVID-19, the number ITAs issued this year is higher compared to the same time period last year.
