Canada conducted its ninth Express Entry draw of the year Wednesday, issuing 3,500 invitations to apply for permanent residency. The lowest qualifying Comprehensive Ranking System score was 441.

The number of invitations remained at 3,500, the same as the previous two draws. The minimum qualifying score of 441 was tied for the lowest cutoff score so far this year.

BAL Analysis: Canada continues to invite a high number of individuals for permanent residency. The increased number of invitations in the past month and the low minimum scores are good news for applicants.
