The latest Express Entry draw, which took place on April 19, 2017, has issued 3,665 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent resident status to candidates in the Express Entry pool with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores of 415 or above. Marking the lowest CRS requirement yet, this draw brings the total number of ITAs issued since the introduction of the Express Entry system in January, 2015, to over 100,000.

So far in the first four months of 2017, 35,973 ITAs have been issued. This is higher than the total number of ITAs issued during the year of 2016. Candidates who received an ITA in this draw are now in a position to submit an application for Canadian permanent resident status to the federal government. Accompanying family members, including spouses or common-law partners, as well as dependent children, may also come to Canada along with the principal applicant. IRCC aims to process complete submitted applications within six months.

The opening months of 2017 have witnessed a series of decreasing CRS requirements and increasing numbers of ITAs issued. This followed predictions made by IRCC towards the end of 2016 that changes to the Express Entry system and the CRS would result in a greater number of ITAs being issued, and consequently a drop in the CRS score requirement.

7 Reasons Why Canada Is The Best Country In The World

1 Economy

There is unlimited opportunity and potential to be found in Canada’s fast growing and industrialized economy. As one of the riches countries, Canada also offers the highest standard of living while decreasing taxes and strengthening their economy with a 2.3% inflation rate.

Canadians also get to keep an increasing amount of their income each year, with the average annual income being around $40,000. The economy continues to improve with the lowest unemployment rate since 1976 (6.8%) and hundreds of thousands of new jobs created annually. Aside from the economic facts and statistics, the currency in Canada is truly awesome. They use colorful paper money, one dollar coins (Loonies) and two dollar coins (Toonies).

2 Health

Canadians consider health care to be a fundamental right. This is why free healthcare is such an important part of what makes Canada awesome. While the process may be slower, the quality of health care is among the highest in the world, and everyone has access to the medical treatment that they need. The cost of recovery is never a concern, no matter what health challenges you face. The access to social assistance programs and affordable housing also contribute to the overall wellbeing and health of the nation that takes care of its people.

Aside from free health care, there is a social health consciousness that can be seen in traditions like the Wednesday yoga class on the lawn of the nation’s capital. Every Wednesday in the summertime, yoga enthusiasts can join in on this one hour yoga class tradition that has included as many as 2,500 people at one time, and averages 1,000 participants per class.

Canada Needs Immigration to Balance Aging Population

A new report from the Conference Board of Canada has found that immigration levels should increase to 413,000 per year by 2030 to strengthen Canada’s economic growth. The report highlights the need for increased immigration in order to respond to challenges posed by Canada’s aging population. It is projected that without significant policy changes, including a substantial increase in immigration, the costs required to support retirees could undermine the strength of Canada’s economy in the coming decades.
Proposed Scenarios

The report proposed four scenarios for the future of Canada’s population growth. Across all scenarios, it is clear that immigration is an essential component, and that improving the fertility rate — 1.6 births per woman in 2015 — is not enough to maintain the economy.

In the report’s most optimistic scenario, it is projected that Canada inviting up to 413,000 immigrants per year by 2030 will result in the strongest economic growth. This scenario — in which Canada’s population increases to 100 million by the year 2100 — ‘results in a sharp increase in Canada’s potential output over the long term,’ states the report. Under this scenario, the increase in economic growth results in greater revenue for the provincial and federal governments. The number of homeowners also increases, leading to greater spending on durable goods.

Another scenario posed by the report projects that if immigration grows moderately, but shifts to a younger demographic of new arrivals, the impact on Canada’s economy and fertility rates could be significant. For example, if more men and women come to start careers and families in Canada, the country may benefit from their economic input and the input of their children for future generations.

CRS Requirement Decreases in Largest Ever Express Entry Draw

The first Express Entry draw for immigration to Canada of 2017 has taken place, with 2,902 candidates in the pool having been issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence on January 4. The number of Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points required in order for a candidate to receive an ITA in this draw was 468, the joint-lowest CRS threshold since February of last year.

Invited candidates have 90 days to submit their application, including supporting documents. Once Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has approved an application — a process that usually takes less than six months — these individuals, as well as accompanying family members, may land in Canada as new permanent residents.

The response to the latest draw, the 51st in total since Express Entry was first launched two years ago, has been positive. Over the latter months of last year, the number of ITAs issued per draw increased, to the point where draw sizes are now around four times what they were during the summer months of 2016.

A positive start to 2017

“Over the last three or four months of 2016, positive developments in Express Entry came one after the other, and quickly. There was the announcement of the of the 2017 Immigration Levels Plan, which targets more newcomers through the system than ever before, then there were the welcome changes to the Comprehensive Ranking System. These changes should allow more candidates to realize their goal of settling in Canada as permanent residents,” says Attorney David Cohen.

“In addition, we are seeing larger draws than ever. Combined with the recent changes, this has had the effect of the point threshold decreasing.”
