Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) introduced a mechanism in January 2015 called Express Entry. The role of this mechanism is to manage and process the application received through different immigration programs for Canada. The CRS is a score out of 1200 points which is being used to scale federal economic aspirants to compete. The score is utilised as a cut-off point in Express Entry draws, which is intended to forecast an applicant’s prospect of being economically successful in Canada.
The 38 th express entry draw for July 13, 2016 is out. In this draw 747, express entry applicants received invitation to submit their applications. The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points required in this draw is 482, so these candidates must have at least 482 CRS points to submit their applications.
This is the 38th Express entry draw of the year 2016, and 747 applicants got the invitation which is second least number of candidates who got the invitation through the draw. The CRS points remained the same 482 points as it was in the 14 th Express Entry draw, June 29, but 782 applicants got the invitation. There has been a sharp decline in the number of candidates since May, who got the invitations to apply.
