A large Express Entry Draw – 3,900 candidates receive an invitation

Like the trend in the recent draws, it applied a tie-break. The candidates who had 440 CRS points and a profile in the pool for a long duration received the priority. This deadline was before April 29, 2018 at 14:28:34 UTC for getting the invitation in this latest draw.

With this draw the total invitations issued in 2018 total up to 58,600.

As per the November 1, 2017, Canada Immigration Plan the government has made projections for the period of 2018-2020. There is a commitment to increase the immigrants by using the 

  • Federal Skilled Worker Class
  • Canadian Experience Class
  • Federal Skilled Trades Class

250,000 of them will settle in the next three years, and 184,000 permanent residents will settle through the PNP by 2020.

Furthermore, many invitations will be issued in the future to benefit persons, as well as families, from across the world, to reach Canada, and settle here permanently. The CRS is a score with a maximum of 1,200 for federal economic applicants. It is a vital part of the mechanism of Express Entry, which is in use since January 2015 for processing residency applications. This score serves as a cut-off point in the draws. It projects the chances of a candidate to be economically successful in the country. To enter the pool, candidates must be eligible under different immigration categories. 

Such Candidates, successfully obtaining the provincial nomination, in a Provincial Nominee Program stream, having the alignment with the Express Entry, receive additional 600 CRS points, and also get the ITA, at an ensuing draw.

We at Visa Reporter can guide all the candidates regarding their suitability for such migration.
