Express Entry Draw Mid-Week for the First Time!

On September 8th, 2015 Citizenship and Immigration Canada did their 16th draw under Express Entry and handed out 1,517 Invitations to Apply to immigrate to Canada. This has been the first draw to occur mid week and not on a Friday.

Many people have asked what they mean by “draw”. They simply use that term for when they select individuals from the Express Entry Pool based on their Comprehensive Ranking System Score. You can read more about that process here:

The minimum score for this round was 459. This means those selected did not have a job offer or a Provincial nomination which is great news again for those of you in the pool without a job offer or nomination.
