Quite unexpectedly, CIC has declared its 50th and possibly last draw of this year with a CRS CUT-OFF at 475 with 2,878 invitations. In the last couple of months, this has been the largest draw declared by CIC and that too on a Thursday.
Keeping in mind that we are drawing close to the year 2016, this would be the last draw for this year unless CIC decides to declare another draw this year, which is again highly unlikely. Although, the cut-off score dropped to 475, the number of invitations sent out are close to 2900 which essentially means CIC has cleared out a large percentage of candidates, who had their scores increased after the recent point policy changes effective 19th November 2016.
If the trend continues and CIC issues 4,000 nominations every month, it is possible that the cut off will drop below 450 eventually in next 3-4 months.
