Analysis of New EE invitation round

The Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has issued decent number of ITAs this time around, however, the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score requirement is bit higher than the expectation of the aspirants this being an all-program EE draw. However, with the advent of category-based express entry draws, now applicants fancy their chances of getting Canada PR invitation as the CUT OFF in such draws remain relatively lower.
