PNP aligned was the First Express Entry Draw of 2021

On 6th January 2020, The IRCC started the year 2021 with the first Express Entry draw that was provincial nominee program aligned. In the latest Draw, the minimum comprehensive ranking system (CRS) score requirement was 813 points for selection. It means that the applicant who had already received the provincial nomination they will be able to meet the high CRS score and thus will be the core appellants in the Draw. As a score of 813 is impossible to be met without the 600 additional bonus points in the CRS calculation. In this Draw, there were 250 appellants that have made to the list of Permanent Residents.

The Important Aspects of the Draw –

  • CRS score – 813
  • Selected applicants - 250


The Federal Express Entry Program is a skilled worker immigration program, and it has three subcategories: Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Eligible Candidates are selected based on meeting the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. The applicants are provided this score based on age, education qualification, work experience, and language ability in English or French. The CRS points are given to individuals, and the high scoring appellants are selected in the Draw and provided with the Invitation to Apply (ITA). In 2020, we witnessed that the CRS Scores were slightly dropped at the end of the year, and the top-scoring candidates were selected from the pool.

In the latest EE draw, on the lines similar to the previous draws, the IRCC applied the tie-breaking rule. The applicants who had a CRS score of 469 or more and those who had submitted their profile on or before 2nd November 2020 at 11:11:52 UTC were selected for relocation.

The IRCC has set the high admission targets for this year, and it is expected that 2021 will cover the shortage of the year 2020 as well. However, despite the pandemic situation, the 2020 year was a record breaking year with 108,350 ITAs sent to Express entry candidates. This year is expected to be a year on the same lines, and some are speculating that even bigger as there is a target to welcome 401,000 new immigrants out of these 108,500 will be allocated through an Express Entry-managed program. The immigration targets are expected to come up in the next three years, witnessing a rise of 110,500 in 2022 and 113,750 in 2023.
