Looking at the Consistent Rise in ITAs, it’s the best time to apply for Canada PR via Express Entry System

by By Rajneesh Kumar

Posted on October 26, 2016

Skill Immigrant Program for Canada

If have plans for immigration to Canada, this is the best time to take action and apply for the Canadian Visa. There is good reason to believe that as the most popular Express Entry System of Canada is inviting more and more candidates to apply for Canadian Permanent Residency (PR) with every passing draw.

Let’s explore the whole concept to understand it better.

Number of ITAs via Express Entry System Draws

Express Entry is the most popular pathway to apply for Canadian PR visa. It is run by IRCC (Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada) department of Canadian federal government. Express Entry System is based on CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System), which allocates points to every registered candidate in the system. The points are allocated based on the age, education, work experience, language skills, etc. of the candidates creating profile on the express entry system.

The IRCC launches draw every fortnight to select the candidates with top CRS Score. Qualifying marks are announced in every EE draw and candidates who are able to achieve that score, become eligible to receive Invitation to Apply (ITA) for the PR visa from IRCC.

Consistent Rise in ITAs in last few EE draws

In last few draws of Express Entry system, a considerable and consistent rise is observed. On top of that the last draw itself has invited record 1518 candidates for Canadian PR. This is the highest number for ITAs in year 2016. Last time this number was hit in the 2nd draw of express entry on January 13th, 2016.

Canada ITA Draws Chart

Why numbers of invites are increasing regularly?

Canada has the immigration target close to 60,000 in the year 2016 for its Federal Skilled Worker stream of its economic program. However, it is far behind of its target at this juncture. Hence, it’s quite possible that IRCC has plans to significantly increase the number of invitations, when just few months are left for the year to complete.  Hence, we may see the same trend in the upcoming express entry draws this year, i.e. the qualifying marks may decrease to subsequently increase the total number of Canadian PR invitations.

Apply in the Express Entry System now to enhance your chances of securing ITA for Canadian PR?

Now, you must have understood the pattern express entry is following in last few draws. Hence, keeping in mind the same, it’s the best time to apply for Canadian PR via Express Entry system. In the next few draws, the qualifying marks by IRCC may considerably decrease, which will enable you to secure the PR invitation even with the less CRS Score.
