Rounds of Invitation under Canada Express Entry

The new electronic application system- Express Entry launched by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), is conducting draws on a regular basis to attract skilled migrants towards the country.

Under Express Entry system the applicants are awarded 600 points in order to meet the ability to migrate to Canada under one of three economic immigration programs. These factors include age, language skills, education and work experience. Further, the candidate is given an additional 600 points so as to support them in holding a job by a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

Canada launched the Express Entry system from January, 01 2015. The details in regard to the rounds of invitations are as follows:

  • 779 candidates are being invited in the “first draw” that was conducted on January 31, 2015, with a cutoff score of 886 points
  • 779 candidates are being invited in the “second draw” that was conducted on February 7, 2015, with a cutoff score of 818 points
  • 849 candidates are being invited in the “third draw” that was conducted on February 20, 2015, with a cutoff score of 808 points
  • 1187 candidates are being invited in the “fourth draw” that was conducted on February 27, 2015, with a cutoff score of 735 points
  • 1620 candidates are being invited in the “fifth draw” that was conducted on March 20, 2015, with a cutoff score of 481 points

Express Entry Canada 2015 till now has issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to more than 5000 applicants and has an intention to invite approximately 185,000 new Permanent Residents in 2015, conducting over 25 draws.

Looking at the draws conducted by CIC, it can be said that the number of invitations that is being offered to the applicants in order to apply for PR visa has considerably increased, while the ranking or the cutoff score in regard to the CPR (Comprehensive Ranking System) is decreasing with each draws.

This will surely lead to increase in the number of people willing to enter Canada under the skilled occupations.

There are certain points that need to be taken care by the applicant in order to avail ITA successfully.

  • The candidate must possess a clear understanding of the exact selection criteria under the new rules
  • The assessment of education credentials must be properly done
  • Result of IELTS must be relevant
  • The information submitted by the candidate must be accurate in case of EOI (Expression of Interest).
  • One must get representation from an employer in Canada to ensure great value of time.
  • For the applicant looking for a PR visa, the PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) can be a faster processing option.
  • Those with an employment offer will be given priority, which would make a positive impact on the Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).
