General Assessment of the Draw

The draw result has been more or less stable this time around. Although, IRCC reduced the CRS Score requirement, however, it was not huge enough to impact the number of invites in general. The required CRS score was 438 points last time round, which reduced by 2 points this time around.

In the current draw, IRCC invited 44 fewer applicants (total 2,757 invitations) compared to last time. Hence, we can say that draw results were more or less stable in terms of both CRS score requirement and number of invitations issued for Canadian permanent residency.
