The Express Entry draws that have taken place in the recent months have shown a consistent trend. The first thing to notice here is that they have happened after every two weeks and that on Wednesday morning.
Looking at the past trend, candidates in the Express Entry pool might have expected another draw to happen on June 14th, 2017, as the last draw happened on May 31st, 2017.
Till the time of writing this article, no such draw had taken place. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has given an explanation for the delay in the Express Entry draw and candidates in the pool will encouraged to hear it.
IRCC made further improvements in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) on June 6th, 2017. It was announced that additional point will be given to candidates in the Express Entry pool who have a sibling in Canada, and also for candidates who have proficiency in French language.
At the time of making these changes, it was announced by IRCC that the CRS points scored by all the candidates in the pool will be updated automatically as per the new changes and before the next round of Express Entry draw takes place. This can take up to two weeks.
It is because of this reason there has been some delay in the Express Entry draw this time, as the CRS points of all the candidates are being updated in the pool. Candidates who are sure that their CRS points will increase as a result of the June 5 change, will have a better chance of being picked up in the next Express Entry draw.
Furthermore, it should be noted here that the recent changes that have taken place on June 6th, has not effected negatively any candidate that is there in the Express Entry pool.
It has been confirmed by IRCC that the profiles of candidates will be updated automatically that are already entered in the pool. In case a candidates has not disclosed the he or she has a sibling in Canada, or the results of a recognized French test, they are being encouraged to update their information so as to receive the additional points.
It is expected that the next Express Entry draw will happen anytime soon, as and when the update of all profiles has been completed by the IRCC.
