Decrease in CRS Score in new Express Entry draw

With each new Express Entry draw, the CRS has been slowly dropping as the backlog of Express Entry pool applications is processed. The CRS dropped by 2 points in the most recent draw. The cut-off score finally fell below 500 points in these last two draws, which has been long awaited ever since draws reopened.

Each new Express Entry draw has resulted in an increase in the number of ITAs provided. However, the number of ITAs given in the new Express Entry draw 235 was the same as in the previous draw. During the stages of the previous three draws, 500 more invitations to apply were distributed.
