Migrate to Canada


 

The November 2nd Express Entry draw has seen a minimum threshold of 458, which is by far the highest in many months now. The CRS draw in June had seen a historical dip at 413. But it has constantly been increasing since then. IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has sent out ITA’s to 2,000 candidates in the pool to apply for the Canadian permanent residence. ITA’s are issued according to the CRS scores and dependant on the requirement of the Canadian immigration system

 

Canada Education Consultants (CEC) always brings up the latest updates for you when it comes to migrate to Canada from India.

 

The candidate profiles are ranked according to the date and time of their submission. 27 draws have been taken out so far in 2017. Since its introduction in 2015, there have been 77 draws under the Federal Skilled Worker Express Entry stream.  In the event that multiple candidates have the same score, invitations are based on the exact time of the submission of their profile. This strategy was introduced by IRCC in June this year and is being called the tie-break strategy. What this translates into is that the profiles that have been in the pool that have been there for a longer time are being prioritized over the new ones being made.

 

CEC keeps you updated with the latest Canadian Express Entry Streams and PNP Programs.

 

Candidates who are able to receive a nomination through the enhanced provincial streams add 600 points on their Federal Express Entry profile. The federal Minister of Immigration, recently gave a go-ahead to two express entry draws in which only applicants for Federal Express Entry Skilled trades stream and the PNP streams were invited to apply.

 

In these draws IRCC invited a total of 795 applicants to apply for PR. These draws are usually an exception and not a normal course. This could actually be a factor as to why such low no of applicants were sent an ITA. This also seems to be a logical reason to the increase in the CRS minimum threshold.
