The highest scoring candidate's profiles are then issued invitations through frequently held rounds of invitations. Candidates will have 30 days, after getting the invitation, to submit their application for provincial nomination.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination are automatically awarded 600 CRS points, effectively guaranteeing an Invitation To Apply (ITA) in the next express entry draw for Canada PR Visa.
