Waiting for 17th draw of Express Entry? Well, you must be having several questions in mind, i.e. what will be qualifying marks, number of invites, will the result be positive for you or not, etc.
As an applicant, you get more concerned about express entry draw results, when your CRS score is not very high. Let’s analyze the draw proceedings this year and find out more about the expectations from forthcoming EE draw.
CRS score requirement has been higher side most of the time in 2016
In last few draws the CRS (comprehensive ranking system) score requirement from IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada) has been consistently on the higher side, i.e. close to 480 points or more. Hence, the candidates with CRS point score around 450 are waiting eagerly for the qualifying marks or CRS score requirement to come down.
The CRS score requirement in the last draw of express entry was 488 points. It has now been consistently over 480 points for last seven EE draws. Hence, the frustration and eagerness of the applicants can be understood.
Falling trend observed in the number of invites
In the beginning of this year, the number of candidates being invited was somewhere around 1500. It consistently remained around this mark till the end of February, 2016. However, from March, 2016 onwards a falling trend noticed in the number of invites as it went down to 1000 invites. Now, from last seven draws, the number of invitations being issued by the IRCC is consistently hovering around 750 mark. The number invitations are inversely proportional to CRS score requirement decided by IRCC. Hence, if the qualifying marks increase, the number of invites decreases accordingly, and vice versa.

What are the expectations from next draw of express entry?
The 17th draw of express entry is expected to be not much different from the previous draws in terms of qualifying marks and number of invitations. It seems to be a balancing act by IRCC with regard to allowing immigrants in the country. If there is huge number of applications being accepted from any of the immigration program in Canada at a particular point, the express entry invites the lesser number of candidates to balance the number of immigrants at a time in the country.
At now, another major immigration program, i.e. QSWP is opening from August 16, 2016 to accept 5000 applications for Canadian PR. Moreover, the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) is also accepting applications for its subcategories (Refer to News Section on Visas Avenue website to remain updated about the latest proceedings). Hence, the next express entry draw results are expected to remain more or less the same as earlier.
How to ensure your Canadian PR as a Canada Immigration aspirant?
Well, in order to obtain the Canadian PR, you need to go all out and make all encompassing efforts. Apply in other key Canadian immigration programs as well along with express entry. For instance, the QSWP is a really good option to try for PR visa.
It’s open for new registrations via its Mon projet Quebec online system and will start accepting 5000 new applications w.e.f. August 16, 2016.

Visas Avenue has been extremely helpful to me in my Australia PR application. My case was very complicated because of some personal emergencies I had during the application process but Samiksha Lal handled it very smoothly with a lot of expertise. My heartily thanks to her for helping me through the whole process with a lot of patience, and never minding my ever changing circumstances. Thank you Samiksha, thanks a lot. I owe you my regards.
Visas Avenue is probably the best company out there for these types of services. I had the pleasure of working with Priyanka Kandwal. She made the process so easy for me by answering all my queries in a timely manner. I am really grateful to you Priyanka for taking me to the finish line. I could not have asked for a better case worker. Keep up the good work.
Jasmeet & Archana was very helpful in assisting me and my wife in getting PR for Canada. They explained the step by step process and took a lot of responsibility in making sure our documents are in order. They made sure we don't miss anything and took care to make sure that there was no reason for our application to be rejected. I highly recommend them for all your immigration needs.

At first, I was so confused about choosing an immigrant consultant to prepare for my Canada PR application. After those initial discussion with Visas Avenue consultants and reading the reviews, I felt that I am at right place with right people and decided to move ahead. Today I am writing this with immense satisfaction after receiving our Canada PR in 3 months. I am extremely happy and would like to thank my case manager Priyanka Kandwal for her support throughout the process. She is pro-active and dedicated in helping out to prepare my documents well before the timeline and in best possible manner. I was very confident that my application is well documented. I am really impressed by her calmness and never tiring attitude of answering my questions. Kudos to Priyanka, Jyoti and the entire team involved in this successful story. I strongly recommend Visas Avenue to those aspirants wanting Canada immigration. A very big thank you to entire Visas Avenue team!
Visas Avenue, what a professional company they are, who value their clients. Mrigya Shah and Arpita Saha were always there to guide us to the right path. 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. Their knowledge and experience is up to the mark. Thank you Visas Avenue team, keep up the good work.
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.
