Owing to the increased Canada ITAs in 2018, it is being anticipated that the CRS threshold required for receiving an invite for Canada PR application may further decrease. The lowest score required for an ITA in 2018 has so far lowered till 441.
Canada has set higher immigration intake targets for 2018, as quoted by the CIC News. Depending on these, it can be comfortably predicted that Canada Express Entry will offer more numbers of ITAs in 2018. This is in order to cater to the enhanced targets for intake of immigrants.
Let us now compare the sum of ITAs offered till this point in 2018 versus 2017. In the first 4 months of 2018, more numbers of Canada ITAs have been offered in comparison with 2017. The 2018 annual immigration intake indicates that higher numbers of economic immigrants will be accepted in this year than the previous year.
Thus, it is a rational estimate that the number of Canada ITAs offered in 2018 will quite possibly surpass the numbers of ITAs offered in 2017. With the increase in the numbers of ITAs for Canada PR being offered in 2018, it is practical to project that the threshold CRS score needed for receiving and ITA will decline. Nevertheless, variables cannot be completely ruled out in this situation that can be unpredictable. One such is the numbers of profiles submitted in the Canada Express Entry in 2018.
In case there is a significant increase in the numbers of profiles that are submitted in the pool, this may have an effect of increasing the CRS scores by counteracting the increased numbers of ITAs. Nevertheless, there is a definite and practical possibility that CRS will decline as 2018 marches ahead.
