- Draw number: 56
- Draw date: March 1, 2017
- Number of Invitations issued: 3,884
- Minimum CRS: 434
The above graph represents that as the size of the draw increases, the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score decreases by slightly few points.
According to the recent news, the Government of Canada announced a target of 73,700 newcomers under the Federal Economic category in 2017. Whereas, in the previous year the target was 58,400. Hence, this shows that the number of newcomers is increased by 26% and will be welcomed through Federal Economic streams, such as by Express Entry program. Therefore, this whole scenario portrays the increasing size of the draw.
