Express Entry

Update on the Lates Rounds of invitations – Express Entry

On April 17, 2015, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (the “CIC”) invited 715 more candidates to apply for permanent residence from the Express Entry Pool. The pass score in this 8th draw was 453, a further decrease of 16 points from the 7th draw that was conducted on 10th April, 2015. The decrease in selection score continues as we move into the current year.

Previous Draws:

The Comprehensive Ranking Score required for the first draw was set at whooping 779 points, a milestone only candidates with a valid job offer or provincial nomination could achieve. The continuing sliding score with the most recent ones hovering in the vicinity of 450 clearly indicates that the ITA was issued to those who did not have a job offer or provincial nomination. As such, those waiting in the pool without a job offer or provincial nomination can expect to get the Invitation to Apply (ITA) hopefully sooner than expected.
