2,750 Candidates Invited to Apply for the new Canada Express Entry Draw

December 2017, 07
EMAIL  Print A+
In Dec. 6th Draw, The Canadian Government, has invited 2,750 Candidates, listed in The Federal Express Entry Pool, to submit applications for attaining Permanent Residence Status. In this draw, the CRS Cut-Off Score was 452. A feature of this draw was using the Tie-Break Procedure that was introduced in June 2017 by IRCC. Some candidates who scored 452 were invited to apply, but the tie-break norm was that only those candidates qualified, who had presented their profiles in the pool, before the deadline. In this case, the time and date set was 04:20:20 UTC on 16th November 2017.

The previous draw was held on Nov. 15th which had a score of 439. The Cut-Off Score was 452 and it was possible because of the big time gap between the two draws, which provided an opportunity to many candidates to enter the pool.

The Canadian Government has decided to increase targets to issue the desired invitations for the three economic immigration classes for 2018. Now there is an anticipation that the ranking scores will keep sliding down. IRCC greatly needs, conducting large draws, or more frequent draws, from the pool, in the New Year, or resort to both of these scenarios. This will result in a low cut-off ranking score.

This was the 29th draw for the year 2017. Presently, the total number of ITAs issued in 2017 is 83,273. This is 56 percent of the invitations out of 148,118 which were issued when the Express Entry system was introduced in January 2015.

During the month of November 2017, four draws were held.

On Nov. 1st, 2017, IRCC had announced a far-reaching and landmark Multi-Year Immigration Plan which envisages an increase of 20 percent in the next three years in the number of candidates to whom permanent residence status will be given by using various economic programs. After this announcement was made, 8,295 ITAs have been issued in five draws held.

There ranking cut-off thresholds are presently seeing many fluctuations and candidates who have a bachelor’s degree and English language proficiency meet success. Also of advantage is, having a work experience, or having relatives as permanent residents in the country. A score of 8 in each category in IELTS and modern skills like web designing or software engineer are also of immense help to the candidates. Higher targets in Express Entry set for 2018, will witness the decline of CRS cut-off score in the future. It is the best time to determine the status and qualify for Express Entry, by entering the profile.
