Express Entry.. EDIT 1

Are you the lucky one !!

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has invited 2,000 candidates in the Express Entry pool to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a draw that took place the morning of Wednesday, November 8. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of the lowest-ranked candidate issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) was 458.

This latest draw, the 77th to take place since Express Entry was first introduced in January, 2015 and the 27th so far this year, is the first draw to operate under a new procedure whereby in the event that multiple candidates have tied CRS scores, profiles are ranked according to the date and time of submission of the profiles, with profiles that have been in the pool longer being prioritized for invitation over newer profiles. This tie-break policy was first unveiled by IRCC as a possible future strategy last June. Therefore, it is possible that not all candidates with exactly 458 CRS points were invited on this occasion.

Last week, the federal Minister of Immigration, Ahmed Hussen signed off on two Express Entry draws, in which only those candidates eligible under the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC), as well as candidates with a provincial nomination, were invited to apply. Candidates with a provincial nomination obtained through an enhanced Express Entry-aligned Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) stream receive 600 additional CRS points and an ITA at a subsequent draw from the pool.

Program-specific draws, such as those that took place last week, are the exception rather than the norm. In those draws, IRCC invited 795 candidates to apply, a factor that may have contributed to the relatively low number of candidates invited in todays draw. As a result, this was likely to have been a significant contributing factor to the increase in the CRS cut-off threshold.

Good Luck.

Notice Supplementary Information 2017 Immigration Levels Plan. :

Ottawa, October 31, 2016 Following the tabling of the 2016 Annual Report to Parliament on Immigration on October 31, 2016, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is pleased to release details on its 2017 Immigration Levels Plan. Canada will welcome between 280,000 and 320,000 (target 300,000) new permanent residents in 2017.

Beginning in 2017, this category will also include admissions resulting from up to 2,000 applications in the new Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program.

Admissions also include applicants who applied to the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program and Canadian Experience Class prior to the launch of Express Entry on January 1, 2015 (i.e., applications in the inventory), as well as those who made an application using Express Entry.

Levels targets and ranges have not been established for each individual program as a majority of admissions in 2017 are expected to come from Express Entry. This approach reflects the current way that federal economic immigrants are selected under the Express Entry system. The Express Entry system determines which programs foreign nationals qualify for based on the information they provide and awards them points under the Comprehensive Ranking System for their ability to successfully enter the Canadian work force (e.g., age, education, official language proficiency and work experience).

Return to table 1 note 1 referrer Table 1 note 2.. Please see the LINK ABOVE.

Includes admissions in the Caring for Children Class and the Caring for People with High Medical Needs Class, which are pilot programs that replaced the Live-in Caregiver Program in late 2014. Applications received under the legacy Live-in Caregiver Program will continue to be processed and resulting admissions are reflected in the 2017 target.

Return to table 1 note 2 referrer Table 1 note 3
Includes admissions in the Self-Employed Persons Program and the Start-up Visa Program for Immigrant Entrepreneurs, which was created as a pilot program in 2013. This category also includes admissions resulting from a small number of applications in the Federal Immigrant Investor and Entrepreneur Programs, which were cancelled in 2014.

Return to table 1 note 3 referrer Table 1 note 4
Includes admissions of persons selected on humanitarian and compassionate grounds, for reasons of public policy and in the Permit Holder Class.
