    Express Entry Program selected 462  applicants in the new PNP draw

    The new Express Entry draw was a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw which selected 462 Express Entry candidates for permanent residence on July 21. The CRS scores for the selection of applicants were at least 734. Since the applicants had already received 600 additional points in the CRS score calculation because of the provincial nomination that they had received, the CRS score requirement was 734. Without the CRS cut-off, the score requirement should be 134 points.


    The Key Highlights of the Draw –

    ·        ITA – 462

    ·        CRS score - 734


    Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced the tie-break rule. It is not a real tie but an administrative requirement where applicants with the same CRS score are assessed. Candidates with the minimum score are selected if they have submitted their Express Entry profile before April 11, 2021, at 10:56:32 UTC.


    In the previous PNP draw, IRCC had invited 627 candidates, and the minimum CRS score requirement was 760. In the new draw, the CRS score requirement is slightly lower than the previous draw.


    PNP and CEC draws

    Throughout the pandemic situation, IRCC has conducted only PNP- and Canadian Experience Class (CEC)-specific draws. This is done because these candidates are already be living in Canada in most certainty and less likely to be disrupted by travel restrictions.

    Coronavirus-related measures in Canada have started to roll back as the border is now reopening to non-essential travel to fully vaccinated U.S. travelers in August. Then in September, it is assumed that the border will open to fully vaccinated people from all other countries. However, From India, the suspension will last until August 21.


    Canada has a target of 401,000 new immigrants to Canada this year, as per the immigration levels plan. Till now, there are 94,304 Express Entry candidates who have received invites. The biggest draw so far was conducted on February 13, where a total of 27,332 people got selected in the CEC-specific draw.


    The score requirements for PNP-only and CEC-only draws are different.
