Canada immigration authorities issued the second-most Express Entry Invitations to Apply on record in the third quarter of 2020, putting the system on track for a record year.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued 28,450 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) between July and September, second only to the second quarter of 2017 when 29,855 invites were issued.

September saw the most ITAs issued in a calendar month on record, with 12,600 candidates receiving invitations through three all-program draws.

The prolific quarter means IRCC has now issued 78,350 ITAs so far this year, almost 9,000 more than at the same stage of any previous year since the system was launched in 2015.

It means Canada is firmly on track to break the annual record for ITAs, which currently stands at 89,800, set in 2018.
