The number of invitations are decent in this current EE draw, however, the CUT OFF is bit high for the liking of the skilled worker applicants registered in the federal EE system. However, the positive thing for the applicants is the category-based Express Entry draws being opened by IRCC periodically.

These category-based invitation rounds invite the candidates with low CRS score provided their occupation is a high demand occupation or they have proficiency in the French Language.
