DEVELOPING STORY -
The latest draw just occurred at 447 points - a historical low. This is the first time in Express Entry's 2 year history that applicants who have scored under 450 have been given an invitation to apply.
This draw count will allow for applicants who did not yet fully benefit from the November Express Entry Changes to be given a chance to apply for permanent residency (e.g. those who did not complete a 3 year or Bachelors or higher education in Canada). As well, it is a promising trend for foreign workers to receive an ITA, who are missing claim to points that would enable their profile to be at 450+.
