Hello Readers,

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. The province of Ontario remains hotspot for candidates and is expected to release their new provincial nomination program with some new rules and a cut-off score around 400.

This story is still under update.

      We expect in Q2 2017 but a more educated guess will depend upon how OINP shapes up once they start issuing nominations.

    Well this is hopeful. At least now I can see 465 having a good chance of getting an ITA possibly in the next few draws. What are your predictions?

    Hi Rachel,

    I have a score of 668 and have following questions:
    a. how long does it take ITA to show up in my inbox?
    b. Does IRCC takes into account the drop in score due to change in age from the time I applied to the time I got the invitation? When I applied I was 30 yrs old (Oct’16) and had 468 score, on Jan 15 I will be turning 31 that will bring down my scores to 463.

      You should get it within next few hours and may take upto 24 hours. The age at the time of receiving ITA, if your points drop between ITA and submission of documents, it has no relevance.

    II am married, but i applied alone saying my wife will not accompany me to canada because i had 475 points applying alone, but with wife i had 461 points.
    So could you please suggest me wether I should apply with unaccompanying spouse( because i already have ITA with 475 points) or wait for the points to drop to 461 bexause i want to take my wife to canada as well.
    Will this cause any issues or problems??
    Thank You

      Not a concern, your doctor panel will issue a letter for the same, upload that to CIC application and they will approve it for examination later on.

    Dear Rachel,
    I’m married but I plan to apply alone with a CRS of 457. If I include my wife we would have a CRS of 442. Do you think it would make sense to wait for a cut-off lower than 442?
    Thank you and all the best in 2017!

      Try to wait and include your wife if you dont want to waste time later bringing her as PR in Canada.

      396 stands no chance at all, go for LMIA roles or go for SINP or PEI.

    Hi Racheal,
    CRS score is 451 in EE considering my wife. I am optimistic on this score to get ITA in coming months based on your predictions and current trend.
    My query is for Ontario PNP. Do I need to do withdraw my EE profile and reapply when Ontario opens up for PNP (probably by end of January) or should I just be complacent with current profile and wait for Ontario officials to select my profile.

    My experience is 10years in R&D under NOC 2132. All 10 years in same company since my post-graduation.

    Regards,
    Jawahar

    Hi Rachel,

    Could you help me with a query as I got my work permit in June 2016 and worked for 3 months. And, I got Layoff for 2 months. I joined back the same company again in December 2016. Can I be able to apply For PR under Express Entry in June 2017 as I will be finishing 1560 hours by that time? Will Layoff affect my work experience?

      Yes it will since it needs to be continuous experience, so once you complete 1 year apply after that.

    Hi Rachel

    I have CIMA Certificate level from UK along with BA(HONS) from UK as well. CIMA Certificate is equivalent to Level 4 Diploma in UK, I sent my documents to IQAS for equivalency and they only evaluated my University Degree not CIMA which is a professional Qualification. I have checked other evaluators as well but no one is doing Professional qualification assessment. This has left me 33 points adrift, as with CIMA my CRS Score is 474 but without CIMA, I am stuck at 441. What is your suggestion what should I do?

    Thanks

      CEC does not need POF.
      Scores will come down for sure but whether they will go below 460 still remains to be seen.

    Hi will have 457 points once I complete 1 year Canadian experience by June 2017. If I add my back home 1 year continuous work experience point becomes around 485. But, I worked as an assistant engineer for a non-engineering company, therefore, I was not supervised by any senior engineer. But, I have my job letter, duties, salaries+ benefits mentioned in the latter approved by COO of the company. Can I show this experience? or keep 457 until I get ITA? Any suggestions? Thank you.
