Eighth Express Entry Draws – 26th April,2018

There was nothing but good news will the release of Express Entry Draw this time. It was second time in a row when The IRCC invited 3,500 applications for the Canada Permanent Residency (PR) status.  This massive number of invitations for the PR status is attributed to the fact that the qualifying Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points has been reduced to 441 CRS points.  This means that all those candidates who have scored 441 points or above are fit to apply for the Canada PR Status. Further, the usual pattern of Express Entry Draw results being announced after every fortnight was followed by the IRCC.  Also, the draws this year around have seen a huge detour from the pattern followed by the last year draws.

Speculations for the next draws

There cannot be any speculation about what the next score requirement would be but a general pattern of the draw can be sensed. The scores that are been released in the last few draws have not changed much drastically but the invitations asked have been more or less on the same lines. Looking at the entries score required this seems to be a good time for the aspirants to file in for the PR status of Canada.
