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.

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.

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.

The teams, people and process for VISA application at VISAs Avenue is worth appreciation. It was a time consuming process in my Case being a PNP applicant for Canada and I must say they really helped in getting Ontario province nomination. They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.

They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place.
