In this latest Express Entry draw, the candidates with PNP nomination only received the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian Permanent Residency (PR) Visa. These are the candidates, who have obtained extra 600 CRS points by applying in a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and subsequently, getting the provincial nomination certificate.

Since this draw is for PNP class candidates, the CRS score requirement is, as usual, high and the number of invitations is relatively low compare to the regular all-program EE draw. Now, IRCC has invited total 5,374 candidates this year in three program-specific Express Entry draws.

Canada has a target of inviting 401,000 newcomers in 2021, and out of this, 1, 08,500 immigrants will get an invitation through express entry system. Hence, it is still a long way to go, and we may soon see an all-program draw from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The CRS score requirement may also drop in the coming EE draws considering IRCC has huge Express Entry target this year.
