The latest draw of Express Entry has launched after a bit of delay, possibly in view of the festive season and New Year celebrations. The last draw was launched on December 18, 2015, about 18 days back. Let’s take a look at the key statistics of first Express Entry Draw in this year.

The Key Statistics of 1st Express Entry Draw of 2016

  • A total of 1463 invitations will be issued during the current draw of express entry system.
  • The minimum qualifying marks required to receive an ITA are 461 points or more.
  • The marks allocated to the candidates are based on CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System)
Analysis of 1st EE Draw of 2016
There was a minor decrease noticed in a number of invitations (i.e. 1463) as compared to the last draw, in which, a total of 1503 initiations were issued. However, the increase in qualifying marks (CRS Score requirement) is almost negligible, i.e. only by a single point as compared to 460 points in the last draw. The trend, however, can be considered as positive in favor of the applicants as the CRS score requirement is not increased much, which means that the candidates with low qualifying marks are being considered for ITA to invite more and more candidates to for Canadian PR.
