29th April Express Entry draw for PNP Candidates

Here is the result of the most recent Express Entry draw:
Date Category No. of ITAs Minimum Score Requirement Tie-breaking rule
29-April-2020 Express Entry Provincial Nominee Candidates 589 692 March 11, 2020 at 13:46:21 UTC

The applicants who have received the ITA (Invitation to Apply) this time around will have to submit application for PR along with the documents as per the time specified in the invite.

Review of the current Express Entry draw

The draw opened on 29th April is dedicated to the PNP Candidates, i.e. the candidates, who have already received the nomination for Canadian permanent residency from one of the provinces of Canada. The nomination received through a PNP add 600 extra CRS points to the express entry CRS score of an applicant. This is why the cut off or qualifying marks for receiving ITA are so high in the current draw, i.e. 692 points.

The Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada or IRCC has now issued total 3,989 Invitations in 12 Express Entry draws took place in 2020. However, there is still a long way to go when we look at the express entry's invitation target for the year, i.e. 91,800 invites. We may see the surge in the number of invites with the fall in the Cut off once the chaos of Covid-19 is over.
