This post reflects the latest updates on federal and provincial immigration invitations.

Express Entry draw #165 for everyone

IRCC invited 4,500 people to apply in their latest Express Entry draw. They didn’t limit the invitations to a specific program. Therefore, people who had applied under CEC, FSWC and FSTC could receive invitations. The lowest CRS score was 471 which was slightly lower than the previous scores.
