Standing at 471, if I get invited next round, do I need to go back to my home country to gather documents? I'm currently in Canada and I'm a Chinese citizen. Now with the Coronavirus going on in China I don't think I'm going back anytime soon......
No, you just need to have most of your documents scanned. You need to have your China police certificate notarized though. You don't need to go to the police station yourself; your family or friend in China can take your ID and Hukou (sorry I don't remember if you can just provide the photocopies of the documents) to the notary public office in your Hukou place, and the notary staff will do the rest.

If they follow the same schedule as last week, we can expect an update in the next 45 minutes.
Be patient. there's no way to tell when they'll have a draw; any time within the next few hours could be possible. Or maybe they want to make some applicants desperate before giving them a lovely surprise by having a draw tomorrow instead of today.

Yep, there’s a history of B2B that happened on Thursday instead of Wednesday. It’s a possibility.

Let’s be honest to ourselves. Wait for Feb 5.

All the best.

If we don’t see an update in the next few hours, indeed Feb 5th will be most obvious bet for the next draw. But for now, the track of previous draws clearly indicates today is the most probable date.

If next draw is on Jan29, cutline will be precisely 468. (You guys knows the reason: There are ~1600 people at 468, but only ~600 people at 469)
If next draw is on Feb5, cutline will be 470.

(Assuming ITA count stays 3400)
How do you know that there are 1600 people at 468?
The range given here is as follows.
601-1200
451-600
... etc

Is there any other location where you can see total no of candidates at every point ?

There used to be a breakdown in the express entry annual reports. For example, this is the one for 2018 https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/express-entry-year-end-report-2018.html

The one for 2019 hasn't been published as yet so who knows. I guess he was just estimating that number.

This draw is key for people with 467-471. My progress started with 448-457-468-471. Trust me its been long journey with some hopeless days, sleepless nights ...then picking up myself, motivating myself and most importantly I never wanted to give up. But still no ITA yet. Am just believing in Faith at the moment.
