The new Express Entry selected 463 PNP candidates with a minimum CRS score of 751 points. It is 9 points less than the score requirement in the previous PNP draw.

There were 463 provincial nominees selected in the latest Express Entry draw on August 18. The minimum CRS score of selection was set at 751 points. It is fairly normal to ask for a high score in PNP selection since the provincial nomination itself is worth 600 points. In the last PNP draw, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) asked for a high score of 760 points.

The Key Highlights of the draw - PNP Specific draw - 18 August 

  • ITA - 463 PNP applicants
  • CRS - 751

The Express entry draw was a PNP-specific draw and tie-break rule that was applied before April 13, 2021, at 16:29:29 UTC. The tie-break rule is an administrative requirement used to select applicants who have the same score requirement.

There have been 16 PNP draws in 2021

So far, in 2021, IRCC  has selected only two types of applicants from the Express Entry pool: Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

The reason for such selection is pandemic-related. Most of the PNP and CEC applicants are already living in Canada. Thus, the labor force gaps can be filled without breaking the Corona portals and inviting many applicants into the domain. The Canadian government needs to work to support its immigration goals.

Express Entry Invitations Almost Double 2020 Levels

IRCC has issued many invites this year, and the number has doubled since 2020. The IRCC  has a target of 108,500 newcomers through the Express Entry system in 2021. Till now, Canada has already issued 102,779 invitations through the Express Entry system.
The high-scoring applicants are selected for PR status, and since the draws have been CEC and PNP specific draws in the past, the minimum score requirements have also gone up. The PNP applicants will get a high score for selection because of the 600 points allotted for the nomination received.
