In a new draw, 1002 PNP applicants have been invited

With a CRS of at least 742, Canada welcomes 1,002 PNP applicants. In the most recent Express Entry lottery, Canada welcomed 1,002 immigrant candidates to apply for permanent residence.

All of the applicants who were invited had already been nominated by a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Because all PNP applicants in the Express Entry pool receive 600 points added to their score immediately, the score cut-off was set at 742. 

Whether or not there was a tie, IRCC established a cutoff time for the tie-break rule as per administrative regulations. Candidates with the minimum score were only invited if their Express Entry profile was submitted by February 18, 2021. 

Candidates from the US were given first priority. IRCC has only held PNP and Canadian Experience Class (CEC)- specific drawings during the epidemic. This is due to the fact that these individuals are more likely to have previously settled in Canada. Approved permanent residents were unable to go to Canada until June 21 to complete their landing and activate their status.

Although Canada’s travel restrictions are beginning to ease, the border remains closed to non-essential travel, and the India airline ban has been prolonged for another month.

Despite the ongoing pandemic, the federal government intends to admit an unprecedented number of new immigrants over the next three years. 108,500 additional immigrants are expected to enter the country under Express entry-managed programs in 2021 alone.

Canada welcomed 940 PNP individuals to apply for permanent residence in the last PNP-only draw, with a scoring minimum of 711 points. It was the world’s largest draw of its type. Click the link below to read more about it:
