The qualifying marks in the draw were stable at 482 points while the number of invites reduced to 747. Last few draws have not been much to the liking of the express entry applicants. Moreover, the draw results in the every draw have been unexpectedly adverse. So, the applicants are not very sure as to what the next draw will offer.

The qualifying marks have consistently been higher side in 2016

The New Year started off well for the applicants in express entry, as the CRS score requirement went close to 450 points; however, it gradually kept on increasing and even touched the 534 mark in the May 2016 draw results. Consequently, the number of invitations too reduced to somewhere 750 mark which used to be close to 1500 mark at the beginning of this year.

What is the ray of hope for the applicants?

The positive thing for the applicant is that both qualifying marks (CRS score requirement) and number of invitations have been stable in last few draws and no drastic change has been seen in their statistics.

Moreover, in view of the recent announcements from Minister of Immigration Mr. John MacCallum, the federal government may consider relaxing the strict immigration rules of express entry and other immigration programs of Canada. These relaxations might get considered to allow the more and more immigrants in the country. So, we can expect that if the statics at now are stable they are going to be favorable for the immigrants in the future draws of express entry.
