Posted - 30, Nov 2017
If year 2017 was outstanding in the history of Express Entry, so was month of November, this year. This month, the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) issued staggering 5,545 ITAs (Invitations to Apply) for Canadian Permanent Residency.
November has set the tone for 2018
The record number of invites issued following the announcement of Multiyear Immigration Plan of Canada in the first week of this month, i.e. November 2017. It seems the IRCC has set the tone for coming year by issuing significant Canada PR invites in November.
Canadian government revealed its Multiyear Immigration Plan from 2018 to 2020 in the first week of the month. The plan shows significant increase in the annual immigration target of Canada for next three year i.e. close to 20 percent increase including all streams of express entry.
|Express Entry Draws||Date||No. of Invitations||Qualifying marks|
|EE Draw (PNP)||1-Nov||290||673|
|EE Draw (FSTC)||1-Nov||505||241|
Canada, in fact, plans to invite nearly one million permanent residents in next three years, which indeed is a massive target for any country to have for immigrants. This is really a bold decision by Canadian government considering the negative environment for immigrants in most of the advanced nations.
Considering the huge annual immigration till 2020, we are likely to witness even bigger Express Entry draws and EE months in next three years. Hence, if you are an aspirant of Canadian permanent residency visa, it’s the best time for you to prepare your immigration file and get ready to apply in the federal Express Entry System or any other suitable Canadian immigration program next year.
Year 2017 has been record breaking for Express Entry
Year 2017 has been outstanding so far for Express Entry system. This year we witnessed records broken several times for highest number of Canada PR invitations in a draw as well as lowest Qualifying marks (CRS Score requirement). Number of invitations almost touched the 4,000 Mark in 12th April EE draw, when as high as 3,923 invitations issued by IRCC. Likewise, in 31st May 2017 EE draw, CRS score requirement from IRCC went as low as 413 CRS points.
|Years||2015||2016||2017 (Till November)|
|No. of Invitations||31,063||33,782||80,500|
In total 28 express entry draws this year, IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) issued 80,500 invitations to apply Canada PR. This number is mind boggling, when we compare this to the invites issued in past years. Considering the Multiyear Immigration Plan of Canada, the annual immigration is only going to increase in next three years.

I would like to thank VISAS AVENUE for helping me obtain a Canadian Permanent Resident Visa in 2017. It was a wonderful journey and great experience for me. I thoroughly enjoyed myself over the last one year. My case manager Kirti Chauhan was a of great help. She was always prompt in replying to my queries. She delivered quick and timely information always. I trusted her more than myself throughout the PR process. Her immigration knowledge and sincerity made the task of obtaining the PR much easier. Perhaps, without the help of my case manager – Kirti, I wouldn’t have come so far! Before starting my PR process, I was in a limbo about the whole process. VISAS AVENUE was able to answer all my queries and clear my doubts. My Job code was very unique one and VISAS AVENUE staff picked it up immediately in our first meeting after hearing my Job description. It was after our long first meeting, that I became cognizant of pedigree of VISAS AVENUE in the immigration industry and immediately decided to enroll myself.The ladies in reception were also very polite and welcoming. Overall I have had an extremely positive experience at VISAS AVENUE. I would highly recommend them.
The whole process was smooth and executed with timeliness. Special thanks to Mrigya for helping us all through.
The Visas Avenue team is very thorough and professional. They understand each case with great details and ensure success for their clients. They are very reliable and you can be rest assured once they work on your case they try really hard to make it a success. I had a great experience with the team and would recommend engaging them for visa processing
Thanks a lot to the Visas Avenue team for helping me and my wife get our Australian PR. It was a complex process, but was made simple and easy because of the able guidance and promptness of my Case Manager (Ms. Kirti Chauhan). A special thank you to Kirti for what we have achieved today. Her timely advice and deep knowledge about the entire process, along with the extensive experience of handling different cases helped us a lot to get across the finishing line smoothly. I would definitely recommend Visas Avenue to anyone for immigration purposes and especially Kirti as the Case Manager. Keep up your good work.
We spoke with various agencies and consultants before we zeroed down on Visas Avenue for Australian PR application solely because of their depth of knowledge in the area during the initial conversation and "no-marketing" approach. They meant business from day one and Anikta who was our relationship manager ensured that we get adequate support from the start. The best part was having Kirti as our case officer who not only made sure that our application and documents were in perfect order but also went extra mile to work on our application post regular office hours. She was always available to answer our queries despite her busy schedule and patiently addressed all our concerns with a smile on her face. We felt very comfortable working with her and she also took special care to ensure we're getting regular updates on our application. Her diligence was evident as there were no follow ups from the immigration department and everything was in perfect order. Thank you for being such a great partner in our journey!
Finally, we got our PRs (Canada). First of all many thanks to Visas Avenue, especially Ruchika Sharma, who was my case officer. I cannot thank her enough. All through the process she helped me with my queries (a lot of them ? ) and documentation very professionally & patiently. She is the best!! My family and me very much indebted to her. If you are very serious about going abroad, one stop shop Ruchika Sharma @Visas Avenue
Having spoken to a couple of agents and not being impressed with their responses and constant demand to urgently make a payment to secure their services I was hesitant initially while I got in touch with Visa Avenue.This doubt was cast aside in the first conversation I had with Rajesh, who was open with his communication and did not put any pressure on registering at that moment.When I did make up my mind I was assigned Ruchika Sharma as the case officer. There were constant updates over email and telephone and the seemingly endless process of submitting documents was made hassle free. This was very important when you have a full time job and with Ruchika following up the strict deadlines were met as everyone at Visa Avenue is very clear with the processesThere was always a backup person, who was up to date with my case incase Ruchika was on leave which I felt was one of the best aspects of the service provided.There is also a person touch with their communication.

I m really thankful to Visas Avenue for fulfilling my dream of settling down in Canada. Initially i was skeptical about them but i just took the leap of faith and swiped my card and registered with them. I can tell you one thing that trusting them and going ahead with them was the best thing to do. Visas Avenue has great sense of responsibility towards their clients, they give guidance and support regarding which document are required and how to prepare for tests, I would recommend anyone to go to Visas Avenue if they are trying to apply for a VISA.I m very thankful to them and their services. Last but not the least, Ruchika Sharma my case manager, a big thanks to you from the bottoms of my heart. I had bothered her a lot and trust me, she always heard me patiently and helped me with everything i needed. Ruchika is the real hero who made my dream come true as for me she is the face of Visas Avenue.
