Is this the Last Express Entry draw of 2017?

Only 10 days are remaining in beginning of a new year 2018. Hence, people are suspecting this to be the last express entry draw of the year. However, in view of the unpredictability of EE draws this year, there won’t be a surprise if we see another draw taking place before the year end.

This in fact, has happened with one of the popular PNPs of Canada, i.e. Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program. The OINP authorities announced in November that the intake limit of the program is reached, however, just before couple weeks remaining in the year end, the province now announced the increase in its annual quota of nomination applications. Hence, the OINP is continuing to accept application and issuance of notifications at the moment.

Possibility of another EE draw this year

Considering the above factors, we cannot deny the possibility of another EE draw before the year end. The (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) may launch one more draw before the start of the New Year to meet their annual target.

However, the exact number of applications left for the year is not known to anyone except for IRCC itself. Hence, we can only assume the possibility of another draw this year.
