EE Draw Analysis

Canada continues to hold draws and invite candidates to apply for Permanent Resident (PR) Visa. In this latest draw, IRCC has invited 3,300 candidates, which is an incredible number, considering the fact that this draw was for FSW candidates only.

A marginal drop of two points in the CRS score requirement is also a positive indication for the Canadian PR visa aspirants registered in federal EE system. Looking at the current EE pool standings, further drop in the CUT OFF is on cards. Hence, it is the perfect time to apply for Canadian PR Visa.
