Posted - 27, Dec 2017

This year was extraordinary for the aspirants and applicants of Canadian Permanent Residency visa registered in the federal express entry system. If you look back at the whole year, you will find that in most of the months in 2017, express entry draws broke a new record in terms of outstanding draw results.

The draw results were amazing and exceptional this year, in terms of high number of Canada PR invitations issued and lowest ever qualifying marks announced by IRCC. In fact, almost every EE draw in first 8-10 months of the year, created a new record in terms of qualifying marks or number of ITAs (Invitations to Apply) issued by the IRCC (Invitation Refugees and Citizenship Canada). Hence, every aspirant of Canada immigration now asking whether or not the IRCC will continue this positive run next year.

IRCC reduced the qualifying marks to lowest ever mark of 413 CRS points on May 31, 20107. In fact, the trend of low qualifying marks continued throughout the year. As a result, a huge number of skilled workers received ITA for Canada PR in 2017. The IRCC has invited over 85,000 immigrants for Canada PR through express entry system till December 20, 2017 express entry draw. This certainly is a staggering data enough to boggle the minds of Canada immigration aspirants planning to apply Canada PR visa in 2018.

This positive run of 2017 is expected to continue in 2018 as well. The IRCC released its multiyear immigration plan 2018-2020 last month, which announced to invite about one million new immigrants in Canada next year as permanent residents. For the New Year 2018, Canada has got massive immigration target, i.e. 310,000.
