The lowest CRS score for a candidate who was sent an invitation was 434. 30 draws and up to 70,000 invitations with CRS scores below 450 are expected to be issued in 2017 in order for the Canadian immigration authorities to meet this year’s targeted annual immigration levels.
Since its launch in January 2015, Canada has welcomed over 43,000 economic immigrants through the Express Entry system. The Express Entry system is a fast-track system for immigration for highly skilled workers and students. The skills and abilities of a candidate are assessed based on a point-based system known as the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) where the Canadian government assesses the applicants and awards scores. Canadian employers and provincial governments across Canada have access to the profiles. The best candidates are invited by the Federal government to apply for Canadian permanent residence. The system targets and gives permanent residency status to applicants who have the ability to contribute to the economic growth of Canada.
The good news for aspiring applicants is that the expected CRS score for an applicant to be issued an Invitation to Apply under Canada’s Express Entry Immigration system in 2017 is less than 450 points. Therefore, enabling a significant number of applicants to receive permanent resident status in Canada.
