The IRCC sends Invitations to Apply (ITA) to candidates who get the highest score in the pool by a process usually called a “Draw” or “Round of Invitations”. So it is important to score high in your CRS to get an ITA.
If your Express Entry profile is active and your CRS score is equal or more than the minimum score for a particular round of invitations, then you will be issued an ITA.
You will receive a letter through your profile. Your ITA will indicate the program that you should be submitting your application for, CRS score with a breakdown and the deadline for submitting the electronic application for permanent residence. It also provides guidance on the next steps that you can take after receiving the ITA.
You’ll have 60 days to submit your final application. This is why it is important to prepare the supporting documents beforehand, including gathering, and reviewing and scanning them (documents have to be in PDF format under 4MB). For example, some documents, such as police certificates, may need more than 60 days to be delivered by the proper authorities.
