The Canadian Immigration System is dynamic and tend to change very often. Under the Express Entry Federal Skilled Worker stream (EE-FSW) the CRS score which leads to an invitation from the Federal Government, means being able to apply almost immediately for Permanent Residency, fluctuates anywhere from 439 to 476 points in the last 2 years.

Clients who their score, as of today, is higher than the last draw score can unfortunately, find out that in the next draw their score is not high enough, which means their profiles continue in the pool of candidates but they are not selected as of yet. This scenario happens very often, and naturally generates disappointment and unnecessary stress.
As a firm, we trust that the Canadian government is fair and welcoming, as a matter of fact, Canada accepted in 2019 more than 100,000 new Permanent Residents through the Express Entry stream. However, the draw score changes to address the need of the local economy, and it’s impossible to predict what would be the next draw score, much less to know if it will go up or down.
As a result of that, we take a very conservative approach to the Express Entry program, we work under the assumption that every one of our clients, who currently resides outside Canada, will have to get a qualified job offer before he arrives to be able to secure his immigration process. We also know, as a matter of fact, that the immigration system prioritizes candidates with a qualified job offer and these candidates are more likely to adapt to Canada as immigrants, both financially and socially.
We think our approach this is the safest, most reliable, and healthiest approach to the EE-FSW stream, as it provides our clients with two main scenarios, the first is to be selected on spot, in case the score is high enough in relation to the last draw score, and second, is to accept that looking for a job offer, in the vast majority of the cases, will be part of the immigration journey. Our clients are always ready for these two scenarios, and we are well equipped to support, train, and coach them through their international job search and the immigration process that follows.
