Key findings of the EE draw this time around

The most satisfying thing for the Canada PR aspirant registered in the express entry is that draw was on time, i.e. no delay occurred in terms of the launch of draw. Delay in launch had been a key issue in the launch. Now, as far as the statistics are concerned, no major change has been observed. The IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) marginally increased the qualifying marks to 438 points (i.e. increase of 5 points). Similarly, no big change has been observed in the number of invitations as well from IRCC. The number of invites issued last time around was 2,871, whereas, this time around, IRCC has invited a total of 2,801 candidates for Canada PR. Again, a marginal reduction from the Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada observed.
