What Is Tie-Breaking Rule: October 01, 2022, at 06:13:05?

The tie-breaking rule in the Canadian immigration process is used to determine which applicant will be selected for a visa if two or more applicants have the same Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. The tie-breaking rule is applied in the following order:

  1. Age: The applicant with a younger age will be selected.
  2. Draw date: The applicant who submitted their application on the earlier draw date will be selected.
  3. Random selection: If the age and draw date are the same, the applicant will be selected at random.

The latest express entry draw, conducted on July 11, 2023, was not based on any category or specific occupation or sector, which means all the eligible candidates of express entry as well as the provincial nominee program, have received Invitations to Apply through the Tie-Breaking Rule.
