Best time to apply for Canada migration!
CRS points have dropped from the start of this year 2017. Number of ITAs increase in every draw. IRCC (Immigration, Refugee & Citizenship Canada) plans to issue 73,700 ITA s (Invitation to Apply) for Federal economic programs in the year 2017 and the number of ITAs being issued so far, explains that Canada is keen on bringing in Immigrants as per their annual target this year. We are glad to summarize the gradual decrease in CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) points and increase in number of ITAs issued since January. A total number of 3753 ITAs were issued in the latest draw held on 5th April, with lowest ever CRS score of 431.
Ontario Provincial Nominee Program is also now open for CRS 400 and above. The OINP is now identifying qualified applicants from the federal government s Express Entry Pool and will issue Notifications of Interest to applicants that meet the criteria.Eligibility criteria:
- 1. Have a valid profile in the Express Entry Pool
- 2. Qualify for either the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) or the Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
- 3. Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score: A minimum of 400 points in the CRS of IRCC s Express Entry System
We notice a positive trend right from the start of this year, January 2017 and with Ontario re-opening their Ontario Immigration Nominee Program / Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream, it is highly encouraging to submit your application into Express Entry Pool. This is the right time to initiate your Canada migration process as the turnaround time may be lesser than envisaged. And indeed, there is reason to believe that the CRS threshold may continue to decrease.
