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.

""Your aspirations are turned to reality at Visas Avenue!! I received my Canadian PR and Visas Avenue can’t be thanked enough for being a perfect guide to hit the mark. The whole process was handled by the team over calls and emails and I never felt skeptical about anything, as the transparency maintained by them was commendable. I would thank Divya, who helped me be very clear about the whole process and also Jyotsna, who was always very warm and immediately sorted out all the hiccups I had. Being in a different city or never being able to visit the office was not at all a hurdle to the process, it seemed as if they were constantly connected. A very very special thanks to my case manager Ms.Surbhi Rastogi, who was extremely patient at handling all my queries even if I asked the same things a million times. She kept me motivated and helped me stay positive through the process. She is extremely dedicated and always ensured that all the documents were precise. I highly appreciate her efforts to make the process hassle free and completely transparent. She had always been just a call away whenever I was stuck.!! I highly recommend Visas Avenue to the ones who are seriously looking for PR options. A Great Big Thanks to the team at Visas Avenue who helped me through..!""

Thank you so much Visa's Avenue and whole team. Everyone was very supportive all the time. A very very special thanks Shivangi and Neeraj for their any time support. Specially, Shivangi who supported us at every stage very calmly and firmly with all the queries answered on time.
Visas Avenue is certainly one of the best companies which would help us in getting a Visa and is very transparent in nature. I got my Aus PR in close to 7 months as promised and at no stage, I was disappointed. I got to deal with "Jyotsana" from Hyderabad and my case was given to "Shivangi" from Delhi and I am glad that Shivangi worked on my case and she was thorough professional to say the least. Shivangi was sending me timely updates on my PR status and at no point, I felt insecure or disappointed and I knew my Visa application is in safe hands. I cannot thank Visas Avenue and especially "Shivangi Arora" enough for helping me get my PR. You are the best. I encourage people to choose Visas Avenue mainly because they have professionals like "Shivangi Arora" for their VISA dreams to see it come true.
If you are looking for a Visa company who is fast, organized and very detailed oriented then you should get in touch with Visas Avenue Pvt. Ltd. Shivangi Arora was my case manager and she has a very good knowledge of the process. She was very prompt and diligent, she made sure that all the documents are provided on time so that the Immigration doesn't ask for anything at a later stage.I am really happy with their work as I have got my Australian PR because of them which is like a dream come true with 50 bands in each module in PTE test.I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and relatives who are looking forward for their visa processing. Keep doing the good job and making lives!!
After having a detailed conversation and evaluating the immigration processes of three leading consultants in the market for both Canada and Australia Permanent Residency, I zeroed down for the Visas Avenue for my Australian PR. The credit mainly goes to the in-depth knowledge of the Visas Avenue, Hyderabad's Branch Manager Jyothsna, and the competitive pricing for the kind of services being promised. Unlike other registered consultants, Visas Avenue did not charge an exorbitant amount for my application process. Jyothsna gave me assurance of assigning an experienced Immigration officer, and handed over my case to Ruchika Sharma, from Delhi office. After having multiple conversations with Ruchika, I am sure that, I couldn't have got more experienced and patient Immigration Officer than her. She was always there at each stage of the process to guide me to arrange and submit the right set of documents and at times explain in detail to few of my silly queries over mails and phones. I have already recommended them to few of my close friends (with the progress of my application, it was not that difficult to convince them). I wish Visas Avenue team the best of luck in future and hope that they will continue doing great quality work and earn a good name for themselves.

Visas Avenue is one of those companies that come by pleasant surprise unexpectedly. I picked them off google and gave them a ring offhand, 10 months back. Ankita convinced me that I was on the right track and kick-started my formalities within a couple of days. Thereafter their Client relationship manager Ruchika Sharma has been guiding through the nuances of the PR petitioning process at every turn. Though they worked out of Delhi and I out of Bombay, there never was any need to ever meet in person. The communiques and responses were always time and i never had any reason to complain. So cheers and i hope they extend the same professionalism going forward as well.
Visas Avenue has been extremely helpful and supportive throughout my pr process. My case manager Mrigya Shah has always been very proactive and consistent in her attitude towards us (in a positive manner). We are glad we chose them. Wish them good luck in their future endeavors.
