Express entry has immigration target of 91,800 for this year, hence, Canada will not compromise with the number of invites in the upcoming draws, which will possibly result in the drop in cut off, which will be a good sign for the Express entry candidates. Hence, as an applicant you need to stay positive about your chances. However, if your CRS score is quite low compared to the current demand, you must explore the alternate pathways, such as applying in the relevant PNP, getting the provincial nomination and hence, improving your existing CRS score in the EE system to get the Canada PR invitation.
