It has been a good start for all Canadian Immigration Aspirants with CIC declaring 51st Draw under Express Entry rules with a score of 468 cut-off and 2902 Invitations. This being the very first draw of the year 2017 has raised hopes across the globe for Canadian Immigration Aspirants that the scores will continue to see a drop as we move to next draws in this year.
It is expected that Ontario will start its provincial nomination invitations by the of January and CIC draws will continue bi-weekly with scores expected to drop up to 450 by end of February if the trend of 2,500 Invitations in each draw continues. The Saskatchewan provincial nomination program is also expected to open before 15th February 2017 and is expected to accept at least 1,000 applications.
With CIC back to releasing new draws on Wednesday, it is assumed that most of the cases where the applicants were unable to receive updated scores from new rules set forth after 19th November 2016 now stands resolved and the new draws are being released with updated scores.
It has been a good start for Canadian Hiring trends too since our LMIA candidates for Financial roles have their interviews scheduled from 9th January 2017 and will continue till 27th January 2017 with roles expected in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and very few in Ontario.
