Delay in launch of 29th EE Draw

The 29th Draw of the year launched after considerable amount of delay compared to the regular frequency of EE Draw openings. Usually, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) opens an express entry draw every fortnight (15 days), however, this time around the IRCC delayed it for some reason.

The last draw of Express Entry opened on November 15, 2017, however, the next draw or the current draw launched on December 6, i.e. after 21 days. The three EE draws in the month of November inviting over 5,000 candidates could be one of the key reasons of the delay in the next draw. Last month, in fact, has set the tone for 2018, as next year more applicants are expected to get Canada PR invitations.
