Good news for Canada immigration hopefuls! The IRCC has invited 2,750 Express Entry candidates to apply for a PR visa to Canada for the most recent Express Entry Draw held on November 15, 2017.  This makes the latest draw the fourth in three weeks, which has happened only once before in the history of the Express Entry program and has been taken by immigration experts as a positive sign.

In this latest Express Entry draw, the minimum cut-off score was dropped to 439 CRS points, which is a considerable fall from the score of the previous Express Entry draw at 458 CRS points. All Express Entry candidates with the score of 439 CRS points or above it were issued Invitation to Apply (ITA).  There was, however, a condition that only applicants who had entered their profiles in the Express Entry pool on or before October 19, 2017 would be eligible for nomination in this present draw.

The reason for the increasing frequency of the draws is that the IRCC and the Canadian government want to invite more and more immigrants to come to the country and work there. This is thought to be the result of a significant shift in the immigration policy of Canada wherein as many as one million immigrants would be invited to move to Canada as permanent residents. Clearly, Canada wants to fill up its ranks of workers at various levels and industries within its economy and is doing so by issuing more and more ITAs in each Express Entry draw.

Another important factor to note here is the drop in CRS score requirements. This is another move by the IRCC to increase the number of immigrants coming to Canada as permanent residents. It is expected that the IRCC may drop the minimum CRS points requirement even further in the coming draws. That is why experts in Canada immigration are taking this as a positive development and are encouraging more people to apply for Canada immigration and the current three-year plan gives a lot of scope for immigration for people from all kinds of professions.

Until now, approximately 80,523 ITAs have been issued by the IRCC to Express Entry candidates and with the year coming to a close, it is expected that this number may rise to as high as 90,000. Over the next three years, as many as 250,000 fresh immigrants will be allowed entry into Canada programs managed under the Express Entry system, namely: the Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC), the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

If you are planning to move to Canada, then there is no better time to apply for immigration than now. With the number of ITAs issued rising to new heights and a drop in the CRS points, moving to Canada is a real possibility even for those without particularly great scores in the CRS system.
