The IRCC is adhering to its immigration plan for 2017Â and invitingÂ a total of 75,000 – 85,000 candidates through Express Entry this year. Each draw in 2017 has seen at least 3,500 candidates invited to apply for permanent residence. Â There are twice as many candidates being invited this year compared to 2016,Â leading toÂ lower CRS scores. Â It is an ideal time toÂ applyÂ for permanent residence in Canada.
To calculate your Express Entry score, use our Express Entry CRS Calculator. Â Candidates with a score of at least 400 pointsÂ are strong candidates and encouraged to apply. Â If you don’t score enough points, you may be eligible to apply to a PNP program based on an In-Demand Occupation. Â Candidates who are granted a PNP nominationÂ are awarded 600 points to add to their Express Entry score, guaranteeing to be selected to apply for PR. Â If you are currently not eligible to apply or not a strong candidate based on a low CRS score, you may consider studying in Canada as a pathway to PR.
If you are unsure ofÂ your eligibility to apply, Â we can provide a free assessment and evaluate your immigration options. Â Contact us today and we can help you make Canada home.
