The Canadian Express Entry System attracted many immigration aspirants in the first quarter of 2017. The record-breaking express entry draws inviting massive number of people to Canada draw the attention of every immigration aspirant across the world. Almost every Express Entry draw this year has created a new record in terms of low qualifying marks and higher number of invitations. Let’s take a look.
Incredible First Quarter of 2017
The first quarter of 2017 was incredible for the Canadian Permanent residency applicants registered in Express entry. Several time in the year, Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) reduced the qualifying marks to the lowest ever. For instance, in the latest express entry draw a couple of days back (launched on April 05, 2017) IRCC announced the lowest ever qualifying marks, i.e. 431 points or more.
The applicants with low qualifying marks are getting gaga over the IRCC bonanza offer for Canadian PR this year. The Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have invited more than 20,000 candidates for Canadian PR in the first quarter of year 2017. Almost every EE draw invited over 3,500 applicants for Canada PR this year. It’s the massive number for express entry to invite per draw.
What are the EE Qualifying Marks?
Express Entry follows a point based immigration system. Hence, the applicants interested in applying for Canadian permanent residency, need to submit the online Expression of Interest (EOI) on the federal express entry system. The candidates scoring high immigration points based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) find the place in the express entry pool. IRCC launches a draw called Express Entry draw every fortnight and select the candidate with high score to issue them invitation to apply for permanent residency in Canada.
What are the expectations from 9th EE Draw?
The big time question is whether or not IRCC continue to break the records and please express entry applicants in the upcoming 9th Express entry draw of this year. Well, looking at the positive draw trends so far in 2017, the next draw is expected to be lenient towards the applicants. It’s hard to comment whether or not the IRCC will reduce the qualifying marks to create new record for low qualifying marks, however, it is likely that IRCC will keep the qualifying marks between CRS Score 431-450.
