This draw is the second of the week. On, December 6, IRCC invited 4,750 candidates with a CRS score of 561 in an all-program draw.  

The draw was the first Express Entry draw in more than a month. The draw before that took place on October 26 and invited 3,600 candidates with a CRS score of 431 in a category-based selection draw for healthcare occupations.  

On November 14, IRCC tweeted that candidates who had received ITAs in recent draws were unable to upload their final application to the Express Entry profile builder. A follow-up tweet two days later said the problem had been resolved but no reason was confirmed for the longer pause.
