Assessment of the 22nd EE Draw

The interesting fact about the 22nd draw result is that it has followed the ongoing trend of stable qualifying marks or CRS score requirement. There has been a long debate concerning IRCC’s stand and policy about the EE draw invitations. We also analyzed this fact in our blog last week with regards to trend being followed by the IRCC. The IRCC is keeping the number of invitations in mid 430s since last few draws. This seems to be a strategy to meet the annual target.
