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.

There cannot be any speculation about what the next score requirement would be but a general pattern of the draw can be sensed.
