The year 2016 has been significant for Canada immigration as well as for the popular express entry system of Canada. The federal government of Canada let in record number of immigrants this year through various channels. The decision of letting in over 25,000 refugees from Syria by Prime Minister Trudeau was also point of debate and discussion.
We have seen several changes implemented this year, records been broken in terms of ITAs, and so on. All in all, it was an eventful year for Skilled Immigration in Canada through the Express Entry system. As we are heading towards the end of this year, let’s do a small overview of the Express Entry performance and statistics in the year 2016 so far.
Overview of Express Entry Key Statistics in 2016Here are the key statistics of Express Entry System this year:
It is interesting to note here that a candidate can be issued more than one ITA. For instance, if an applicant has been issued an ITA by IRCC, but he/she is not prepared to apply for PR, the candidate can enter again in the EE pool and can be issued ITA once again.
Number of ITAs drastically increased September 2016 onwards
Though, the there was not much excitement among the express entry applicants until September, however, after the first draw launched in the September the number of ITAs have increased drastically.
In fact, in last three draws, the highest number of candidates is invited for Canadian PR by Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). We might see 2-3 more draws before the end of 2016. And these draws are expected to be the same way as well. Looking at the proceedings, the express entry applicants have got the best opportunity at now to obtain the invite from IRCC.

Visas Avenue, what a professional company they are, who value their clients. Mrigya Shah and Arpita Saha were always there to guide us to the right path. 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.
I had an excellent experience with Visas Avenue. Mr. Aditya from the Mumbai office, Mr. Nitin and my case manager Mr. Vijay Singh deserve a special mention. Visas Avenue made the entire Canada PR process look really simple. Huge credit to the team for their professionalism , regular updates and ability to handle critical situations effectively. Have recommended Visas Avenue to a lot of friends and will continue to do so!
The teams, people and process for VISA application at VISAs Avenue is worth appreciation. It was a time consuming process in my Case being a PNP applicant for Canada and I must say they really helped in getting Ontario province nomination. They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.
We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
We have obtained our Canada PR (Express Entry) through Visas Avenue , Delhi and had a very pleasant experience with them. They are very professional and dedicated people. Our special compliments for Mr. Yatin Malhotra who was our case manager and his entire team. With his expertise and knowledge he lead our case to success within a short span which was even unexpected for us. His clear vision about every aspect of documentation made things easier for us. Moreover, at times when dilemma arises over any issue, he never hesitated in taking full responsibility for his decisions.He responded to our repeated queries over phone in very positive and polite manner and had taken personal pain to complete the whole process on time , keeping all deadlines into consideration. In addition, Ms. Shivani Mehra initially guided us properly that helped us build more confidence in Visas Avenue. Also Mr. Gaurav Arora, our case Co- Ordinator helped immensely to lead our case to success through his timely, systematic planning & support.Finally, I would like to conclude saying that Visas Avenue is worth every penny we spent and are very happy that now we are Permanent Residents of Canada.
A big thank you to the team assigned to my case.

Thank you all coz this wouldn't be possible with out you all. Some of you have worked more on my case than others and I thank-you for bearing with us too. Apologies if I'm missing out on any names.
