The first Express Entry draw since the new changes took effect - and the 66th overall - has taken place and the numbers haven't drifted too far from the previous draws.
Today's draw shows 3,409 candidates have been invited to apply for permanent residence to Canada. The previous draw had sent 3,877 invitations to apply - a few hundred more.
As for the CRS points, the last draw was 413 and this draw sees a point threshold of 449. drifting upward by 36 points.
It was unclear when the new Express Entry draw was going to take place. They had been coming fairly consistently until now, around every two week interval. With the previous draw nearly a month ago it remains to be seen if the draws will pick up the pace or stay stagnant over the summer.
