The latest Express Entry draw for immigration to Canada has resulted in 1,936 candidates in the pool with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 497 being issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA). Unlike the previous draw, which took place on November 30 and only issued ITAs to candidates with a provincial nomination, the December 16 draw was not program specific; all candidates in the pool with at least 497 CRS points received an ITA, regardless of the program they were eligible under or whether or not they had a provincial nomination certificate.
Although this is the second draw that has taken place since changes to the system were implemented on November 19, it is the first non-program-specific draw since that date. Therefore, it is viewed by many stakeholders as the first indication of how the distribution of candidates in the CRS may have been affected by those changes, which included the awarding of points to former international students in Canada and a substantial decrease in the number of CRS points that may be awarded for a job offer.
