On April 17, CIC issued a new set of Ministerial Instructions respecting invitations to apply for PR status under the Express Entry.

The total of invitations in this round is 715 with a total of 415 points (no job offer).

So what do these number tell us?

First, that the number of invitations is going up with the overall of points going down. As a result, it appears that applicants without an approved Job Offer have as good a chance as the applicants with the LMIA approved offers. Second, there is no reason to artificially enhance your profile.

Please remember, by providing false information on your Express Entry profile can lead to finding of misrepresentation and ban you from applying for Canadian PR for 5 years.
