Yesterday, IRCC held an Express Entry draw in which only candidates who submitted an application to a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) were chosen. Another exception from the regular all-program draws, which typically invite candidates from any of the three Express Entry programs—the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Candidates still in the Express Entry applicant pool can expect IRCC to conduct another draw in around two weeks.
