“Over 50% of this year (2015) target economic immigrants would be met by the backlog from previous years and the remaining space would be filled by those invited through Express Entry.” (paraphrased) -Chris Alexander, Canadian immigration minister.
Since 2015, the economic applicant target is about 185,000 (total target is between 260,000 and 285,000 and 65% from previous year backlog is roughly 185,000), roughly 90,000 applicants would be invited via Express Entry system in 2015.   They invited roughly 8,000 applicants so far and we are in the 5th month. 8,000 out of 90,000 is roughly 10%. So based on that, one could say we are 10th of the way and have 90% yet to go. That’s one estimate.
1-in-10
However, we went through 8 draws; the minister said 15 to 25 draws would occur in this year. So we got 7 to 17 draws left, or we are 30-50% of the way there and have 50-70% to go looking at it another way. That’s the other estimate.
So while we don’t know how many are left, these are a couple of ways to try to predict or estimate what is happening. We can’t predict what’s coming, but we know that we must respond appropriately.

    I have applied in EE along with my husband who is the primary applicant. His score is 333 and mine is 328. Do we have chance at all to get ITA want to keep updated of latest news and predictions

      So far, the last word from CIC in early May was no lower than 450 points. However, depending on the results from the October Federal election & the level of invitations by then, the number of points may change. I would recommend to do everything to raise your CRS points, but keep your eyes on the trend in October and November. If you are not sure how to increase your points or strategize about you immigration, I would recommend an initial consultation to get some ideas.

  2. Diksha says:

    Me & my spouse’s scores are somewhere around 430ish. Do you think we stand a chance? If not, can you guide us, as to how can we rake in some more points. Many thanks !!

    • Admin says:

      It is important to get the proper consult – you may not be able to get in right away, but depending on your education and language proficiency, you may qualified under provincial programs. All the best.

    • Admin says:

      You should consider a provincial nominee in Alberta seriously. That’s all we can comment at this point, without knowing more. If you need more specifics, you will need an initial consult; or we will be happy to refer someone in Alberta. Feel free to email or call us. Thanks.

  7. Sudipta Sahu says:

    My husband and myself both have applied and we are at a score of 401,what are the chances???

    • Admin says:

      We recommend clients with less than 400 to consider other options. When clients have 400 or more, but they are at risk of losing more points due to the passage of time (age or experience), again we recommend other options. If clients have more than 450 points, they have a better chance. However, depending on the location of clients (in or out of Canada), the options can be different. We recommend a customized consultation to discuss further – info@jrlawoffice.com or call our office 519-744-3470 to set up an initial consultation to discuss further. Thanks.

    Hi Everybody,

    My CRS score is 328, is there any possibilties of getting an ITA or can I concentrate only PNP? pls advice.

  9. Admin says:

    We would suggest a personal consult, because we don’t know how 328 comes about. If a person is older (so lost 100 points to start with), PNP may be a good option. But, if a person is younger (less than 35 years), then it may be a matter of English or education, which creates more issues. We need more information for us to give any meaningful or valuable advice for you to use. We recommend a customized consultation to discuss further – info@jrlawoffice.com or call our office 519-744-3470 to set up an initial consultation to discuss further. Thanks.
