The inner structure of the Canada Express Entry Pool revealed

Since the Canada Express Entry came into picture as the swiftest means to manage Canada PR applications, candidates only knew about the make-up of the pool. A recent publication of the Express Entry report has revealed the inner structure of the Express Entry Pool, giving insights of the Comprehensive Ranking System results for 2015-2016.
 
“There are a couple of important takeaways from this report with respect to the Comprehensive Ranking System. First, it should be noted that the Federal Skilled Worker Class has been the most popular route through Express Entry. Second, the data extract from the pool, combined with what we already knew from the results of the draws, shows that a significant number of proactive individuals with core CRS scores in the 300s, and even lower, are ultimately receiving invitations to apply,” quotes Attorney David Cohen.

 
A deeper insight into the report brings the following factors into limelight:
 
  1. Records from January 1, 2015 to January 3 2016 show that a total of 191,279 Express Entry profiles have been submitted. Among them, 88,048 applications remained ineligible for approval as they did not meet the criteria of any programs that fall under Express Entry. A total of 1,303 profiles remained pending due to Job Bank registration or verification of a Provincial nomination.
     
  2. A total of 63,937 candidates were in the pool on the last day of the record. Among them, about 3,895 applications were issued with an Invitation to apply, yet have not submitted their applications.
     
  3. The majority of the applications (approx. 21,651 applications) who had left the pool, have submitted their applications for processing. The remaining numbers have either been withdrawn or may have reached their 1-year expiry date.
