CIC’s Express Entry intake system is now 5 months old. Here is what we know so far:
- 8 rounds of invitations have taken place
- A total of 8491 applicants have been invited
- Based on parliamentary planning, expected total for 2015 could be 30,000-35,000 invitations
As we can see above the Comprehensive Ranking Score ( CRS) needed to secure an invitation has dropped considerably since January 31 when the first draw was held. Since the points required are now below 600, Applicants no longer need to have a LMIA Job Offer or Provincial Nomination Certificate in order to be invited.
No draws have been held since April 17.
