The draw will invite those candidates for Canadian PR, who are able to achieve the qualifying marks (CRS Score requirement) as per the draw announcement. There were lots of speculations about the launching date of 22nd draw of Express Entry, as last draw was delayed and announced just a week before. Let’s take a look at the draw statistics this time around.
Key Features of 22nd Express Entry Draw
Let’s find out more about the 22nd draw of express entry.
Speculations regarding the ‘draw launch’ were on a high
The registered express entry applicants and media were really in a fix thinking whether the IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada) will launch the draw as per its standard schedule (fortnight basis) or change the draw launch date, since the last draw was delayed. Finally, the draw was launched as per the prior schedule only which ensured that 21st and 22nd express entry draws of this year are launched in the gap of one week only.
Record 1804 Candidates will be invited for Canadian PR
The IRCC shall issue record 1804 invitations for Canadian PR, during the current express entry draw. This is the highest number of invitations ever issued by the IRCC through the express entry system. This really reflects the mood and immigration environment in Canada at the moment. As the year 2016 reaching towards the end, IRCC is really looking to gear up the immigration process and invite maximum number of applications to meet up their annual immigration target.
Significant fall in the Qualifying marks observed
The rise in number of invitations happened due to drastic fall in the qualifying marks or CRS Score requirement. The qualifying marks went down to 475 in the current draw. It is the first time in last six months the qualifying marks came down below 480 mark, which is again good news for the express entry applicants having CRS score between 475- 480, they have either received invite or will receive the same soon from IRCC.
