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.

Visas Avenue has been extremely helpful to me in my Australia PR application. My case was very complicated because of some personal emergencies I had during the application process but Samiksha Lal handled it very smoothly with a lot of expertise. 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.
Visas Avenue is probably the best company out there for these types of services. I had the pleasure of working with Priyanka Kandwal. She made the process so easy for me by answering all my queries in a timely manner. I am really grateful to you Priyanka for taking me to the finish line. 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.

At first, I was so confused about choosing an immigrant consultant to prepare for my Canada PR application. After those initial discussion with Visas Avenue consultants and reading the reviews, I felt that I am at right place with right people and decided to move ahead. Today I am writing this with immense satisfaction after receiving our Canada PR in 3 months. I am extremely happy and would like to thank my case manager Priyanka Kandwal for her support throughout the process. She is pro-active and dedicated in helping out to prepare my documents well before the timeline and in best possible manner. I was very confident that my application is well documented. I am really impressed by her calmness and never tiring attitude of answering my questions. Kudos to Priyanka, Jyoti and the entire team involved in this successful story. I strongly recommend Visas Avenue to those aspirants wanting Canada immigration. A very big thank you to entire Visas Avenue team!
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.
