CIC conducted the 49th Draw of the Express Entry on December 16, 2016. Applicants with a Comprehensive Ranking Score of 497 were picked up from the pool for Invitation to Apply for Canada Permanent Resident Status.

It has been very evident that since the past two Draws, the cut-off score has immensely decline and the number of Invitations to apply issued increased. It is expected that the coming year Canada Express Entry will experience a frequent opening of Provincial Nominee Programs, a decline in CRS score and increasing numbers of Invitation to Apply.
