How long is the police clearance certificate for?
Here's the relevant instruction:

"Date the certificate was issued
For the country where you currently live
The police certificate for the country where you currently live:
  • must be issued no more than 6 months before the date you submit your application
  • must not be expired
For any other country
For any other country, the police certificate must be issued after the last time you stayed there for 6 months or more in a row.

Some countries put expiry dates on their police certificates. If you have a police certificate that expired, include it. We’ll accept it if:
  • it was issued after the last time you stayed there for 6 months or more in a row
  • it is not for the country where you currently live
An officer may ask for a new one later on."

I totally agree with your analysis. I joined the pool Feb with CSR 445 and was confident of getting an ITA based on 2018 data.to my dismay the scores kept rising due to large influx of applicants with your points stated.i simply looked for PNP options in other to improve my scores.
Looking at the trends I believe cutoff in foreseeable future to remain upwards 455+

Following are the reasons:

1. At present there are more than half a million international students. Canada saw biggest increase in student population post trump era which is around 2017 and most of them would have graduated in 2019 and would start applying for PR soon. They have advantage in age, canadian degree, Canadian experience and IELTS and the numbers are bound to increase every passing months. Most of them would have scored at least 460+ or even higher

2. H1B professionals working in USA. Post trump era they are dealing with uncertain future and now they are increasingly looking at Canada as their future. Canada has good tech companies and even many USA companies are moving so this put them in win win situation.

3. Professionals in populous countries like India, Nigeria and others are increasingly looking at Canada. Earlier how easy Canadian immigration was not known to many people and now the secret is out. Everyone is trying to get in.

4. International students in US, Australia and U.K. even they are looking at Canada due to uncertainties.

5. Canada has huge population of PR holders and now their brothers, sisters are claiming sibling points and I expect this number to grow even further in future. These people have immediate 15 points advantage over others.

The only way to reduce the cutoff is back to back draws. One week gap may bring cutoff to early 450s but that would be one off situation. I think everyone in pool should work hard and try to improve the score or try for PNPs. Let me know your thoughts.
