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.

Sheer professionalism and dedication is what they stand for. Thank you Visas Avenue for helping me achieve my Australia’s dream. My consultant Ms. Shivangi Arora and her team helped me on each step of the process. A special mention for Mr. Vaibhav Saini who was very approachable and customer friendly and answered all my queries whenever I asked. A big thumbs up to the team and Visas Avenue. Thank you again.
Our experience with Visas Avenue has been a good one. Though initially there was some delay due to the case manager being changed, when my case was taken up by Ms. Priyanka Kandwal, the process has been pretty smooth. I would like to thank her and the team for their patience while handling our case and would like to commend their knowledge and expertise when it comes to the rules and regulations of the whole process. I would highly recommend them for the PR application process and already have done so. Wishing them all the best!!

Thank you Visas Avenue for the wonderful efforts and professionalism to see my application through and get my PR. Would like to use this platform to thank your entire team, especially Arpita and Mrigya who were the ones handling my case and constantly following up diligently to get the documents and timely applications in place. The PR took a while to be received (1 year/ applied last August '18) but I guess that is normal with the current traffic of applicants.Would highly recommend Visas Avenue's service simply due to their professional approach and response to all queries/ e-mail in no time.Good luck to your team and keep up the great work.

I could not have asked for a better case worker. Keep up the good work.
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.
