IMMIGRATION NEWS

The latest draw of the Express Entry program took place on October 18, 2017. In total, 2,757 candidates in the Express Entry pool were invited to apply for Permanent Resident status. The intent of the IRCC is clear as they lowered the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points to 436, which is a small decline from the previous minimum score of 438 CRS points as on October 6, 2017.

All those applicants who were invited to apply for PR will have 90 days to avail this option. They will need to furnish the IRCC with a complete application, which will include all relevant documents pertaining to the principal applicant as well as any persons accompanying them to Canada.

Overview of the Draw The Express Entry draw has been staying relatively stable for the past several draws. The minimum CRS score has remained around the mid-430 and while the recent draw has seen a dip in the minimum CRS score requirement, it has also seen a fall in the number of invitations issued. In the present iteration, the number of ITAs issued has fallen to 2757 which is a drop of 44 invitations. From this, we can easily infer the intent of the IRCC. They want to relax the minimum score and at the same time curtail the number of ITAs. Thus, the focus is on quality and not quantity. A special mention must be made her of the additional points for family living in Canada and French language ability. Many have taken advantage of these new features and improved their scores to surpass the minimum level. So far, the number of Express Entry draws in 2017 has far exceeded those issued in the previous year. In fact, the number of ITAs issued in this year is more than double of that of the previous year and experts speculate that this trend is bound to rise with the turn of the year and the introduction of the 2018 immigration plan.

Ideal Time to Apply for Canada Immigration This is perhaps the best time to apply for immigration to Canada. With the IRCC stepping up its efforts to lure more skilled workers into the country and lowering the minimum CRS requirement while simultaneously also increasing the number of applications issued with each draw, it is an ideal time to apply for immigration to Canada. The outlook of the IRCC is clearly towards bringing in more external talent into the country and boosting the national economy. The following is a list of benefits you will enjoy if you migrate to Canada with a PR visa:

  • Applicants will have eligibility for majority of the social benefits enjoyed by Canadians including health care coverage, free education etc.
  • PR holders can live, work or study anywhere in Canada
  • PR card holders can become full Canadian citizens after living for 3 years in Canada.
  • Permanent Residents receive protection under Canadian law and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
