visas default image The 14th Express Entry draw is round the corner and the applicants have already started calculating and predicting their chances of securing the ITA in the upcoming draw. Last few draws have seen quite high qualifying marks and low number of invitations, which have added to the worries of the applicants with low CRS score.

The qualifying marks as per last draw stormed to 488 points, whereas the number invitations for PR visa decreased to 752 only. Both the aspects have touched the extreme level in the last few months, i.e. the invites being the lowest and qualifying marks the highest in the recent past.

What are the expectations from 14th draw of Express entry?

The trend of low number of invitations and higher qualifying marks is likely to sustain in coming few draws. The ongoing trend has a lot to do with the parallel running immigration programs, i.e. QSWP, SINP, etc. The nomination certificate received via PNPs (Provincial Nominee Programs) raises provides 600 CRS points to the selected candidates, which ultimately enhance the bar of express entry qualifying marks.

How to secure ITA with low CRS Score?

The candidates with low qualifying marks need to find ways to still secure their ITA. One of the key ways would be applying in open immigration programs or PNP (Provincial Nominee programs) of Canada. The currently open Canadian immigration programs are:

  • Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP): The SINP is the crucial provincial nominee program of Saskatchewan Province of Canada. It is at now open to receive 1100 applications under its ISW- Occupation in Demand subcategory. The successful candidates under SINP will receive a nomination certificate that in turn will add 600 points to the total CRS Score of the applicants ensuring their ITA from IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada).
