Key features of the current EE draw
The main surprise of the present Express Entry Draw was the record number of candidates (i.e. 3,900) invited this year. It's the highest number of Invitations issued in any single express entry draw in the year 2018. However, the even more surprising facts is the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) didn't require to make any deduction in the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) Score requirement to invite highest number of candidates this year.
The qualifying marks remained unchanged at 440 mark. This is the third time in a row, IRCC has kept the cut off marks as same. And result in terms of invited candidates was significant (above 3700 mark) all three times. The IRCC has decided the stop mark for the CRS score requirement for all express entry draws this year. This is the reason that it never went below the 440 mark this year, whereas last year it went down to as low as 413 CRS Points.
However, considering the high immigration target of IRCC for next three years, experts are expecting the cut off marks to decrease in the upcoming express entry draws this year.

Visas Avenue has been extremely helpful to me in my Australia PR application. My case was very complicated because of some personal emergencies I had during the application process but Samiksha Lal handled it very smoothly with a lot of expertise. My heartily thanks to her for helping me through the whole process with a lot of patience, and never minding my ever changing circumstances. Thank you Samiksha, thanks a lot. I owe you my regards.

Jasmeet & Archana was very helpful in assisting me and my wife in getting PR for Canada. They explained the step by step process and took a lot of responsibility in making sure our documents are in order. They made sure we don't miss anything and took care to make sure that there was no reason for our application to be rejected. I highly recommend them for all your immigration needs.

Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.
When my husband and I were looking to move to Canada we researched on a few agencies to help us out with process. Visas Avenue came with a lot of good reviews and I am glad we went with them.

They patiently answered all our queries and guided us at crucial junctures. They ensured our profile captured all the necessary points. We are very happy with our decision and glad we decided on visas avenue.
