The IRCC has already released four Express Entry draws this year and applicants who have got their profile registered in federal express entry system are still trying to understand the ongoing trend of EE draws. The 5th Express Entry draw is being eagerly awaiting by all the Canada immigration applicants who have their profile in express entry. Let's first take a look at the ongoing trend of express entry draws in the first quarter of 2018 to understand how the results going to be in the upcoming draws of federal express entry system.
Ongoing Trend of Express Entry Draws
In the first quarter of year 2018, the Express Entry draws seem to follow a key trend for both qualifying marks and number of Invitations to apply for Canadian Permanent Residency. The qualifying marks or CRS score requirement from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has been around 442 mark.
|EE Draws in 2018||Invitations to apply issued||Number of invitations to apply issued||Minimum CRS points required|
If you closely observe the trend for CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score requirement from IRCC was 446 CRS Point in the first express entry draw of the year, and since then it has remained around the same mark. In last two EE draws IRCC kept qualifying marks as the same, i.e. 442 CRS points.
Number of Invitations remained around 3,000 mark
Similar to the qualifying marks, IRCC also kept the number of invitations around 3,000 mark. In the first EE draw launched on January 10, 2018, IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) invited 2,750 candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residency (PR). In the very next draw, IRCC invited the same 2,750 applicants. Now in the last two draws launched on February 7, 2018 and February 21, 2018, IRCC issued 3,000 invitations in the each draw.
This certainly seem to be the trend being followed by the IRCC for the first quarter of year 2018. The IRCC reduced the CRS score requirement in the first half of the year continuously, which later stabilize in the 2nd half of the year.
Hence, we may expect the qualifying marks to reduce further in the coming months. IRCC to invite a total of 74,900 applicants for Canadian permanent residency this year and to achieve this target, it is likely to make reduction in the CRS score requirement in the months to come.

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.

All our queries are answered to the satisfaction. They have been supportive throughout the PR process, and kept us motivated to not take any haste decision. Their knowledge and experience is up to the mark. Thank you Visas Avenue team, keep up the good work.
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. Right from the initial meet up with the local team at Chennai and the follow up coordinating with Mrigya and Arpita has been great. 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.
