Canada has always been a top destination for people looking to live and work overseas. Every year tens of thousands of people apply for permanent residency in Canada through federal express entry or other immigration programs in the country. However, Immigration to Canada has been something special so far in the year 2017 for various reasons.
This year, express entry alone has invited over 35,000 people for Canadian Permanent residency via federal express entry system. Let’s take a look at the incredible express entry statistics this year.
Massive number of people invited this year via express entry
This year more than 35,000 people received Invitation to Apply (ITA) from Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) through federal express entry system.
Canadian PR Invitations via Express Entry System till April 19, 2017
This year IRCC launched 10 express entry draws till April 19, 2017 and almost every EE draw invited over 3500 applicants for permanent residency in Canada. This became possible through considerable reduction in qualifying marks or CRS Score requirement from IRCC. The IRCC drastically reduced the qualifying marks vide every EE draw this year. In the last EE Draw only IRCC reduced the qualifying marks to record 415 points. This seems to be a positive strategy from IRCC to invite significant number of Canadian PR applicants in the first quarter of 2017.
Now it will be interesting to see whether or not IRCC choose to reduce the qualifying marks further. The applicants with qualifying marks around 400 Mark are fancying their chances in the forthcoming draw of federal express entry immigration system of Canada.
Great opportunity to obtain Canada PR
With the considerable fall in qualifying marks from Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), it’s the high time to apply for and acquire permanent residency in the maple leaf country. This year IRCC has eased the immigration rules as well to make it easier for foreign skilled workers and international students to get settled in Canada.
The coming months are going to be vital for the Canada immigration aspirants as many other Immigration programs are also pipeline to invite significant number candidates for Canadian PR, i.e. Quebec Skilled worker Program (QSWP), Provincial Nominee Programs, i.e. Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP), Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP), Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP), British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP), etc.

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.
