Total points for the Express Entry program continue to get lower, however probably not enough.

The recent announcement states that the current batch of invitations in draw #45 require 475 points. The previous draw was at 484 points.

The total number of applicants being invited to apply for permanent residency has also increased.

We hope that as IRCC continues to reduce their backlog under the old programs that their invitations will continue in this direction and we hope the number of points will continue to get lower.
