Canada has conducted the second-largest Express Entry draw of all time, issuing Invitations to Apply to 4,200 candidates.

The September 2 draw - only the third all-program draw to take place since March - required a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 475 points, one point lower than the previous all-program draw.
