Things are gradually falling in place for FSW applicants

The IRCC has opened three all-program Express Entry draws this year until date and with every all-program draw, the number of invitations are increasing while the CUT OFF is dropping. This is really a good sign for the FSW (Federal Skilled Worker) category express entry applicants, as they may soon find the CUT OFF in their zone and may get the ITA too from IRCC, based on the same.

The government of Canada is also constantly easing the process and releasing updates to facilitate the entry of newcomers to the maple leaf country. Hence, it’s the perfect time to apply for Skilled PR visa in Canada.

To apply for Canadian PR (Permanent Resident) Visa this year through Express Entry or alternate Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), you may contact VA Canada immigration expert on  Toll-Free No. 78-18-000-777 or you can drop us an e-mail at
