In the draw held on February 21st Canada invited 3,000 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence in Canada. The CRS threshold for this draw was 442. The number of Invitations to Apply, which were issued in the present draw, were the same as was the case in the February 7thdraw. It was the second consecutive draw in where 3,000 candidates received invitations to apply. The CRS threshold of 442 remained the same as the previous draw, held on February 7th. 

IRCC again used the tie-break rule in this draw and the time and date of the tie-break were set at February 11th, 2018, at 17:03:32 UTC. This meant that all aspirants who had a CRS score more than 442, and the candidates who had scored higher than 442, and had registered their profile in the EE pool prior to the time mentioned, would be successful in receiving an ITA. The recent Express Entry draw marks a busy start for the year for Provincial Nominee Programs linked to Canada’s Express Entry. 

Recently Ontario conducted its largest invitation round for 2018 using the Human Capital Priorities Stream. This stream permits Ontario to explore the Express Entry pool and seek candidates who had scored at least 400 in CRS and had fulfilled other criteria.

In the draw held on February 13th Ontario issued Notifications of Interest to 488 Express Entry candidates. EE candidates receiving an NOI can apply seeking a provincial nomination by Ontario. Upon success they obtain 600 more points in their CRS score, making the invitation to apply for Canadian PR within reach. Canada has high admission targets for the present year using Express Entry and PNPs. These programs were highlighted by honorable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, in a recent update regarding the 2018 levels. He said that Canada plans to commit $440 million additionally to have increased immigration levels in the next two years.

IT consultants, management consultants, Bachelor’s/ Master’s degree holders, those having a family member as PR in the country, and candidates with an IELTS scored of 8 in each category stand a bright chance of success. It is a matter of interest to watch the number of candidates IRCC will invite in the future invitation rounds because the admission targets for 2018 and also for 2019 are high.
