In the middle of all the buzz and happenings of festive season and New Year, Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have launched the 27th and probably the last draw of express entry this year, within a week of previous draw launch. The selected candidates in this draw shall get invitation from IRCC to apply for permanent residency in Canada. Let’s take a look on the 27th EE Draw statistics.
Key Features of 27th EE Draw this yearHere are the key features and statistics of the 27th draw:
The draw has not only surprised the people in terms of result, but also with regards to the timing of launch.
The draw launched within week of previous draw opening
The IRCC has launched the 27th express entry draw within a week of the opening of last EE draw as last or 26th draw was launched on December 16, 2016 only. The draw is most probably launched early in view of upcoming Christmas and New Year holidays. The IRCC may not want the draw dates to clash with the festive holidays and hence, the early launch of the draw was planned. The other surprising factor was the number of invites.
Number of Invitations reached to staggering 2878 mark
The qualifying marks reduced by just 22 points by IRCC to allow candidates with CRS score 475 points or above, however, with this decrease 2878 candidates become eligible to receive the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian Permanent Residency (PR). This clearly indicates as to how many candidates were in the queue with point score between 475 and 500. Now all such candidates will get the e-mail from IRCC to apply for PR within 90 days as per the new rule. Though, it is being said that this might be the final draw of this year, however, the way IRCC has surprised the applicants with their unexpected results throughout the year, there won’t be a surprise, if we see another draw happening prior to the end 2016. So, for now, keeping the comments reserved in this regard is wise till the time it is official.
