Type of draw: Provincial Nominee Program
If more than one candidate has the lowest score, the cut-off is based on the date and time they submitted their Express Entry profiles.

IRCC has already conducted 10 category-based Express Entry draws so far in 2023. With IRCC conducting back-to-back invitation rounds - now is indeed the best time to immigrate to Canada.
