Hello Readers,

In a completely unexpected chain of events, CIC has issued its 52nd Express Entry draw today 11th January 2017 with a CRS Cut-Off at 459 points inviting 3334 candidates out of express entry. This is the biggest draw issued since the Express entry system started in January 2015.

In another strange event Toronto MP Ahmed Hussen 1st Somali-Canadian was appointed to federal cabinet and will be working as   Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship.

Being a Somali Immigrant, Ahmed has experienced the challenges of immigration first hand, whether it leads to positive changes on the immigration level still remains to be seen.

Although the recent CIC draws indicate positive changes are on the way, the next 2 months are crucial to understand how Ahmed takes it forward.

The talks about “Canadian Values” screening surfaced again this week when Conservative leadership hopeful “Kellie Leitch” says she would charge immigrants a fee to cover the cost of her proposed Canadian values screening test at the border. Whether this is implemented in this year 2017 and who pays for it is still under discussion.

The 52nd draw has again raised hopes for thousands of  candidates below 450 points, who are waiting to get ITA. But with the recent draws clearing almost 10,000+ candidates, how many more candidates will be cleared and how soon will that happen is a question everyone is discussing.

Our panel of consultants are still fixed on the fact that CIC can send not more than 5,000 invitations in next month draws to avoid backlogs. But we are still expecting at least one more draw this month and it will be interesting to see under new leadership where CIC heads in future.

    Hey Rachel, I am at 456 now and expecting the ITA soon I am asking about the proof of funds. Should it be sitting in the bank for 6 months before I apply? Or just the average balance over the 6 months is sufficient? Another questions, arw stocks of the required value over the same period are good to use?

    Thanks for all your help

      Average of 6 months is good to go. Stocks wont work, use liquid cash.

    My score is 459. Haven’t received an email or anything. My profile doesn’t say anything as well. What is this supposed to mean?

        Hello Rachel,

        I have lived in 4 countries after I left Canada in the last 5 years. However, I haven’t resided consecutively for more than six months in any country, not even in my home country. I had the residence permit for all these countries. Am I expected to give the police certificate from all these countries?

      445 has rare possibility only if CIC decides to go below 450 level. However, it is not really expected at this moment.

      This is such a bad luck bro. I am 459, fortunately, I got it. I am sure you will get it in the next draw. Good luck 🙂
