90% more applicants with Human capital factors have received a Canada PR Invite after improvements were made to the Express entry program in November 2016. These candidates have received the Canada PR Invite solely on the human capital factors. This means they were not required to obtain extra points for factors like obtaining a provincial nomination or job offer in Canada.
These applicants possessed adequate points via the Comprehensive Ranking System to receive a Canada PR Invite purely on the basis of human capital factors. It has also been revealed that more applicants from Applied and Natural Sciences are receiving the ITA for Canada PR that included STEM occupations. In the period November 2016 to February 2017 35% such applicants were invited which was an increase from 28% earlier, as quoted by the CIC News.
