Draw brings the smile for Express Entry applicants

Finally, the express entry applicants with qualifying marks below 500 got some reasons to smile. The Qualifying marks rocketed to 538 points in the last draw and hence, the applicants were really circumspect, whether it will come down any time soon or not.

However, in the next draw (the current draw) only IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada) gave some relief to the applicants by reducing the CRS Score requirement to 491 points.

Number of Invites touched the 1000 mark first time Since April, 2016

As a result of fall in qualifying marks, the number of Canadian PR invitations, first time touched the 1000 mark in last four months, i.e. since April 20, 2016. It was again good news as more immigration applicants got a chance to secure their ITA (invitation to apply) for PR in Canada after a long time. Its a positive sign for Canada immigration, as the IRCC may be looking to raise the immigration level through Express entry, in order to catch up with the annual immigration target. It will be interesting to see as to how the next few draws of express entry will perform in terms of reducing qualifying marks and subsequently, enhancing the number of invites for PR.
