It depends on whether or not your score is above the cut off. If your score is above the cut off, yayyyyy. You'll get ITA within 24 hours.
If the cutoff is the exact score of the cutoff, then you may not get it because of the tie breaking rule

Exactly my experience. I created my profile early morning on the 8th. I wanted to jump in! Draw came out, 473. I had 473 but didn’t get an ITA.

So hurry and create your profile. You may be lucky!

In the spirit of giving back, here is my landing gist. smiley Decided to post it here as well.

Landing Gist
Thank you, Jesus - - the giver of everything. Truly, nothing I have is truly mine. You are my all in all.

So, I flew from Wisconsin to Illinois (25 minutes) and from Illinois to Toronto (57 minutes). Got to Pearson around 9:45pm. We were not given any declaration document on board.

I had just a very small bag with me. I didn't check in any bag.

Getting to the airport, I used one of the machines there for declaration and I printed out a receipt. While at it, I answered "no" to almost every question except one that asked if I would be bringing some goods later.

After that, I proceeded to passport control. When I got there, I told the officer I came to establish residency and he directed me to the right quarters. There was no queue at all when I got there.

A nice lady called me and she collected my COPR and passport. She asked if I was ever convicted of any crime and I answered in the negative. She asked for my address in Canada and I gave her my friend's address. Those were the ONLY questions I was asked. She told me to keep my COPR safe as I would be needing it for many things in the future.

"That's it," she said.

I was like "wow, so fast(?!), thanks, have a good one."

And she said "you too, bye."

Then I proceeded to customs for Goods-to-Follow documentation. I gave the officer the pre-filled forms I downloaded online. He collected it and told me to sit down for a few minutes. He did all he was expected to do and after some 4 minutes or thereabouts, he called me by my middle name (which is a Christian name). At that point, I was like "hahaha, e be like say this name is what these people will be calling me o." Not like I don't like the name, I just prefer my Yorùbá name jare. smiley But no wahala.

Anyways, the officer gave me the pre-filled form back, now stamped and stapled with a new document. That was it. Nothing was asked.

The whole process from arrival to leaving the airport took probably just 15 - 20 minutes.

My friend came to pick me up to his apartment. Some 7 minutes drive from the airport.

Had a nice meal and I went straight to sleep. Before I slept though, I checked online and saw that PR card application was initiated already.

Will be getting my SIN and opening a credit union account today. Why credit union? Well, the only "bank" account I have in the US is a credit union account and I LOVE IT! I haven't had any issues with it 5 years and counting. I am guessing credit unions here will be similar.

Plus, I am pretty conservative when it comes to money. So, I don't see any reason why I won't do the same in Canada. smiley

And about the cold. People keep talking about Canadian cold like it's going to be ridiculously crazy. Frankly, the Wisconsin I left yesterday was way colder than the Toronto I landed at. :) I was hoping to see something that would knock Wisconsin off the chart. smiley Of course, I know Toronto is not the coldest place in Canada.

Based on my experience so far, Canadians are quite laid back. smiley And I mean it.

I will be here for just a few days.

Stay motivated. Godspeed, everyone.

Should we tell him..relax you are just coming grin

I saw this analysis on Canadavisa, So I say how una see am? (it was posted yesterday)
----------------
As per recent trend, 2,000 profiles per week are entering the pool having 450+ score which I think will slow down a bit to 1000 - 1200 per week. (Just an assumption..will be confirmed with tomorrow CRS distribution pool table). There will be roughly 8 draws till the FST draw in 2nd week of May. If the number of ITAs per draw remains at 3400,then 27,200 ITA would be issued before the FST draw in May.
After the last draw on January 8 2020, 16,000 would have been left with 450+ scores.

450+
Profiles left: 16,000
New profiles that would enter the pool (From January 2nd week till May 1st week) - 1200*15 = 18000
Expected ITAs = 27,200

Balance = 6756

My prediction is that CRS would drop down to 455-460 in April hopefully.

If tomorrow pool table shows a total of 18k candidates with 450+ CRS, then there is hope for people having score 455+.

Stay positive and goodluck everyone

My only problem with this analysis is the assumption that profiles entering will slow down to 1000-1200 a week. There is no reason to think that , considering the influx of international students and EE awareness.

Like I said in an earlier post I believe scores will drop at a rate of 1-3 points per draw up until the FST draw sometimes late april or may. By that calculation , the scores will be low 460s(461-464) by the last draw preceeding the 4 week gap due to FST.

One thing however I see reducing the pressure on EE and the pool inflow is other countries such as the UK becoming more [i]immigrant friendly. [/i]They are re-introducing the Post Study Work VIsa for 2 years and it appears they will be launching a Points Based Immigration System like Canada and Australia by year end.

Lol, I know right. cheesy

But really, I don't think Toronto would be that far from Wisconsin in terms of cold. Wisconsin is also brutally cold. Remember, Canada is a stone-throw away from midwestern US. Anyone coming from midwestern US (North) should not have a problem with this thing you are calling cold in Toronto. cheesy Again, I'm talking based on my experience in Toronto ni o. I have no doubt there will be colder places in Canada.

I tried making payment for my WES Canada evaluation (IRCC). In the process of making payment, billing address was requested for and I put in WES address so it declined.

Please has anyone had issues with this and the reason I can not proceed with payment? What should the billing address be?
Billing address is your address that is linked to that card. That is, the address you gave the bank when you opened the account.
