CRS Points Requirement in Oct-18 Express Entry Draw shows a Slight Decrease

October 2017, 20
EMAIL  Print A+
The most recent Express Entry draw, to support immigration to Canada, took place on October 18th, and 2,757 candidates in the pool were invited to apply. The CRS points, needed by candidates, for receiving an Invitation to Apply, for this event stood at 436, which is two points lower than the previous draw of Oct 4th.

The candidates who have presently been invited are given 90 days to give a complete application for Canadian PR to IRCC. Family members, spouse, common-law partner, and dependent children, can also accompany the principal applicant to Canada.

The CRS, when observed shows a cut-off threshold around the mid-430 in the last six draws. There is a slight decrease, in every draw, in the number of ITAs which were issued, in comparison to the size of draws that happened in the earlier part of the year. The changes which were introduced, in awarding additional points, helped the candidates who had a sibling in Canada or possessed French speaking ability.

With this, the tally of the total ITAs issued, in 2017 presently is 74,978, as a result of 24 draws having taken place so far. This is above twice the figure of the 28,409 of the ITAs issued in the first 24 draws of 2016 and exceeds the total number of candidates invited in the entire year of 2016.

The Scenarios reflect the diversity of candidates who have so far received ITAs under the system. There is a focus on advanced proficiency in English, and candidates like an electrical engineer, a computer programmer, an accounting professional, a financial manager, make the grade now. The point in favor of some of them is that they have a sister who is Canadian permanent resident living in one of the provinces.

IRCC initiates the process to invite candidates eligible in the pool for applying to obtain PR Status permanent residence regularly. The new Immigration Levels Plan will be announced by the government soon,  and the figure of the number of newcomers arriving in Canada through Express Entry next year will be known. The Immigration Minister had said earlier this year that the overall target of 300,000 new immigrants per year, will form the base target for the future. An increased target under the Express Entry programs, would lead to bigger draws and happen more frequently also. This is likely to result in decreased CRS thresholds spread over the over time.

All the aspirants across the world, who intend to reach Canada and make it their new home, must assess the options available to them. They also need to begin evaluating their eligibility for entering the Express Entry pool. We will guide all such aspirants in a professional manner and give our professional advice to them.
