Within just 7 days of the 49th Draw conducted on December 16, 2016, Express Entry scheduled another Draw wherein 2878 ITAs were issued for applicants with CRS of 475 points and above. Sources reveal that not only this a Draw which came within just 7 days but was also the first time ever an Express Entry Draw took place on Thursday.
This draw can be viewed as the latest in a series of positive developments that have taken place in the Express Entry System in the recent few weeks and months. With this Draw, year 2016 hit a bigger ITA target than the previous year and the coming year 2017 would eventually experience more increase. All the 2878 applicants who received their ITA now have a time period of 90 days to submit their PR applications along with the supporting documents. This Draw also indicates that the Canada immigration is committed and all set to invite a large number of skilled workers to Canada in the near future.
