Express Entry Draw: 500 PNP immigrants invited for PR Visa

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held the latest program-specific express entry draw held on May 26, inviting a total of 500 express entry candidates with a provincial nomination to apply for a Canada PR Visa.

The minimum required score was 713, as they would have automatically received 600 points as a result of the PNP. Without the nomination, the candidate with the lowest score would have scored 113. Compared to the previous PNP-only draw, Canada invited 57 fewer candidates and the scoring requirement dropped by 39 points.

With their tie-break rule, IRCC can settle the dispute whenever there is a scenario of a draw between two or more express entry profiles. Candidates who have entered the pool by April 6, 2021, at 9:50:14 a.m. UTC and have the minimum score required were invited to the latest round of invitation.

Priority to candidates in Canada

Since the start of the year, Canada has only invited Express Entry applicants who have received a PNP or who are eligible for the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). 

Canada has expected to invite 108,500 new skilled immigrants through Express entry in 2021. So far, IRCC has invited 68,817 Express Entry applicants to apply for permanent residence.

PNP and CEC only draw have very different CRS requirements. This is because PNP applicants have a price of 600 points attached to their score. CEC specific draw has a larger size as there is no competition between each CEC candidate to get an invitation. The larger the draw size, the more candidates with the best scores can receive invitations, hence a lower CRS threshold. In the last draw for the CEC, the CRS requirement dropped to 397.

If you qualify for one or more of the highly qualified federal programs, you will get a score based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The CRS awards point based on qualified work experience, education, age, official language skills, and other factors.

IRCC regularly organizes invitations. Top-rated applicants receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency. This is your chance to obtain Canadian permanent residence.

After applying, an IRCC immigration officer will make a decision. If you are approved, the last step is to complete the settlement process and officially immigrate to Canada.
