October 2, 2017 – The third quarter of 2017 saw Canada's Express Entry System move down a gear after the record-breaking numbers recorded in the first two quarters of the year.

July, August and September saw fewer Invitations to Apply (18,135) than the other two quarters of 2017, with slightly higher minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores.

However, the numbers still exceeded all quarterly figures for both 2015 and 2016, making it the third most prolific quarter in Express Entry history.

The quarter saw three draws inviting in excess of 3,000 candidates, which was unheard of before 2017 began. The minimum CRS scores were also consistently below 450, showing that although figures did not reach the extremities of the previous quarter, the numbers remained solid.
