Express Entry CRS necessity Decreases yet Again in Latest Draw as Number of Invitations to Apply Increases

Sep 22,2016

In a development that has ensured welcoming candidates for Canadian immigration through the Express Entry selection system, the latest draw has noticed a significant increase in the number of candidates requested to apply for Canadian permanent residence. 

A complete of 1,288 candidates in the Express Entry pool besides 483 or more CRS points received an ITA in the September 21 draw. The government of Canada targets to process applications within six months.

Just four weeks ago, the CRS point requirement was 538 and only 750 candidates were encouraged to apply. The move towards larger draws and a corresponding decrease in the CRS (comprehensive ranking system) point requirement, likely reflects a desire on the part of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to issue more ITAs (invitation to apply) through the fall season.

Obtaining an ITA

When the government of Canada declared its year-end 2015 Express Entry report, it stated that more than half (57 percent) of candidates who acquired an ITA in 2015 had Core CRS scores below 450* (Core CRS indicates a candidate’s score without the extra 600 points for a job offer or an enhanced provincial nomination certificate). 

Taking the opportunity

“The latest improvements in Express Entry are very encouraging,” says Attorney David Cohen. “IRCC’s forecast that the number of invitations to apply would multiply is coming to fulfillment, and candidates in the pool continue to have opportunities to attain additional points, particularly through the Provincial Nominee Programs.
