By | Uncategorized | No Comments

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.

CEC Full for 2014

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

CIC has begun returning Canada Experience Class applications indicating the the annual cap of 8,000 application was met on October 21. This is despite the notices into December that only 4600 applications had been received up to that point.

It appears that applications were allowed to accumulate for  months without being counted, while the updates posted on the CIC website continued to reflect a number that was less and less accurate each time.

Now that Express Entry is active, applicants under all federal economic categories will have intake managed through an invitation based system.  This will create a much more straightforward picture on the annual number and is probably the biggest advantage of this new concept.
