Express Entry draw was held on November 16 and in all likelihood this will be the last draw before the changes in the immigration system comes into effect from November 19. The number of candidates that are sent the Invitation to Apply to immigrate to Canada has increased still further to 2,427.
The cut off in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points has been at 470 in the draw that was held on November 16, 2016. Ever since the Express Entry system was first launched, this has been the 47th draw.
In all probability this will be the last draw before the significant changes come into effect in the Express Entry system. Under the new system, it is expected that a new pattern will be followed by immigration officials to award points under the Comprehensive Ranking System. The existing point system was used by the authorities to select candidates in the draw on November 16.
Larger Draw than ever
In the past couple of months, there has been a substantial increase in the number of ITAs that have been issued in the Express Entry draws. In the draw that was held on 24 August, only 750 candidates were given an ITA and the CRS was at 538 points.
In the draws that were held after that, there has been a significant increase in the number of ITAs given. The cut-off for CRS has also dropped down to its present level of 470. The latest and probably the last draw before the changes are implemented have seen the largest number of ITAs being given.
Big Changes Expected from November 19
The immigration governing authority of Canada, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has described the changes in its policies as improvements in the Express Entry system.
Changes are expected to be made in the manner in which points are given for a qualifying job offer. The most important change is that a job offer will no longer give 600 points to a candidate. In place of this, only 200 or 50 points will be given for a job offer.
