Express Entry aligned stream of any provincial nominee program is most popular among the Canada immigration applicants compared to any other stream. The best thing about this stream is that it gives a chance to an applicant to increase his/her CRS Point score by 600 CRS points. Hence, the express entry applicants not getting the Invitation to Apply (ITA) since long, find this stream crucial in obtaining Canada PR invitation from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada).

Impact of EE stream

The applicants who have low score in Express Entry get benefited through the EE Streams of a PNP great way. If you apply the EE Stream and get selected for nomination as well, you get the additional 600 CRS points in express entry system as an award of nomination.

Now, these additional points boost the ranking of the express entry applicant tremendously and hence, wins the Invitation to Apply for Canadian permanent residency in the very next draw of the Federal Express Entry System. The Express entry aligned stream of provincial nominee programs also impact the Express Entry draw results.

For example, if EE streams issue provincial nomination to candidates and hence, enhance their express entry CRS point score and ranking tremendously. This is the reason that IRCC delay upcoming express entry draw and ultimately increase the CRS score requirement upon finding more candidates (applicants with provincial nomination) in the pool with higher CRS point score.
