What would be the right Express entry CRS score as per the existing trends?
If you are an express entry applicant or planning to create account on express entry for Canada immigration, you must be trying to figure out the answer of this question.
Well, we have to explore the current trends and upcoming events with regards to express entry in order to find the answer of this question.
Express Entry draw trends in 2016The launch of Express Entry system last year was one of the key reasons of huge immigration influx in Canada last year. This year also express entry started well in terms of inviting more and more candidates. However, after the first quarter the qualifying marks started increasing and as a consequence, number of PR invitations via express entry kept falling. Let’s analyze the EE draws in 2016 month wise manner to understand the trends better way.
EE Draws in January 2016The month of January, 2016 was the most significant month for express entry. There were three draws took place in this month with very low qualifying marks (i.e. around 455 points on average) and high number of PR invitations, i.e. close to 1500 mark.
EE Draws in February 2016The Express Entry draw trends remained somewhat similar in the month of February 2016 as well.
EE Draws in March, 2016It was the month of March, 2016 when the qualifying marks started increasing and that’s when we first saw the falling trend in the number of invitations as well.
EE Draws in April, 2016In the month of April, first time the number of invites dropped below 1000 mark, it was the result of constant increase in qualifying marks (i.e. 470 and 468 respectively in both EE Draws)
EE Draws in May, 2016The month of May broke all records of year 2016 and CRS Score requirement or qualifying marks rocketed up to 534 points. As a result, the number of invites too dropped drastically beyond the 800 mark.
EE Draws from June 2016 to August 2016The EE draws followed the similar trend from June 2016 to August 2016, i.e. qualifying marks were hovering around 480-490, while number of invitations remained around the 750 mark most of the time.
EE Draws in September, 2016The month of September brought some respite for the visa applicants as the falling trend is noticed in the qualifying marks and rise in the number of invites noticed.
Expectations from upcoming draws of express entryAs the year 2016 has entered in to last quarter, the IRCC (immigration refugee and citizenship Canada) must be thinking of achieving their annual immigration target. The qualifying marks in the last express entry draw that opened on September 21, 2016 were dropped to 483 points, which gives an indication that IRCC may be thinking of inviting more candidates in the last quarter of 2016.
What would be the ideal CRS Score in the last quarter of 2016?Though it is hard to predict the precise EE score, however, in view of the visible falling trend in qualifying marks, the applicants with CRS score 460-480 can fancy their chances in the last quarter.

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.
I had an excellent experience with Visas Avenue. Mr. Aditya from the Mumbai office, Mr. Nitin and my case manager Mr. Vijay Singh deserve a special mention. Visas Avenue made the entire Canada PR process look really simple. Huge credit to the team for their professionalism , regular updates and ability to handle critical situations effectively. Have recommended Visas Avenue to a lot of friends and will continue to do so!
The teams, people and process for VISA application at VISAs Avenue is worth appreciation. It was a time consuming process in my Case being a PNP applicant for Canada and I must say they really helped in getting Ontario province nomination. They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.
We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
We have obtained our Canada PR (Express Entry) through Visas Avenue , Delhi and had a very pleasant experience with them. They are very professional and dedicated people. Our special compliments for Mr. Yatin Malhotra who was our case manager and his entire team. With his expertise and knowledge he lead our case to success within a short span which was even unexpected for us. His clear vision about every aspect of documentation made things easier for us. Moreover, at times when dilemma arises over any issue, he never hesitated in taking full responsibility for his decisions.He responded to our repeated queries over phone in very positive and polite manner and had taken personal pain to complete the whole process on time , keeping all deadlines into consideration. In addition, Ms. Shivani Mehra initially guided us properly that helped us build more confidence in Visas Avenue. Also Mr. Gaurav Arora, our case Co- Ordinator helped immensely to lead our case to success through his timely, systematic planning & support.Finally, I would like to conclude saying that Visas Avenue is worth every penny we spent and are very happy that now we are Permanent Residents of Canada.
