Express Entry One Year report – 2015 – Caution

In 2015, 191,279 profiles were created in the pool, but 88,048 of them were removed because the applicants did not meet the criteria for any of the four economic immigration classes.

Of the remaining candidates, only 31,000 (30 %), received an invitation to immigrate here.

The high number of rejection of profiles highlight the fact that there are too many pitfalls in creating Express Entry profile on your own. It is strongly advised to retain the services of professional consultants to do your applications right from the start to avoid loss of precious time and disappointment.

Express Entry One Year report – 2015

Express Entry One Year report – 2015

In 2015, under Express Entry, more than 31,000 invitations to apply for permanent residence have been issued and out of those, 10,000 individuals have already landed in Canada as permanent residents,” said the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada review.

“Key findings were that professors found a place in the top 10 occupations list and that many international students fare well in Express Entry.”
2,356 applicants invited to immigrate last year were “food service supervisors,” followed by 2,295 cooks. Together the two occupations accounted for 16 percent of those who became permanent residents in Canada.

Information systems analysts, software engineers, computer programmers and interactive media developers, university professors and lecturers, retail sales supervisors, graphic designers and illustrators, financial auditors and accountants, and financial investment analysts rounded up the top ten.

Express Entry Report Card – 2015

EXPRESS ENTRY REPORT

According to the one-year report card on the Express Entry system, 80 per cent of cases were processed within that time frame — from the day a complete application was received until a final decision was made by an immigration officer.

There were a total of 23 draws, each with a different cutoff ranging from a low of 450 points to a high of 886. As of this January, there were 60,042 profiles in the pool, with 22.5 per cent of them having a score between 400 and 449, and 36.4 percent of a score between 350 and 399.

In 2015, 191,279 profiles were created in the pool, but 88,048 of them were removed because the applicant did not meet the criteria for any of the four economic immigration classes: provincial nominees, federal skilled workers, federal skilled trades and Canadian experience class.

Of the remaining candidates, only 31,000, or 30 percent, received an invitation to immigrate here. Their top three destination provinces were Alberta, Ontario and British Columbia. Only eight cases were headed to Nunavut.

More than 78 percent, or 22,111, of the successful candidates, were already living in Canada when they applied — a sign of the advantage the new system awards those already working here, who have a positive labour market impact assessment in their line of work, or have graduated from a post-secondary program in Canada.

As in 2014, India, China and the Philippines remained the top three immigrant source countries, accounting for 41 per cent of successful candidates.
