Canada invited over 6,900 candidates in the last Express Entry draws

Canada invited a total of 6,940 candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence (PR) in the last two Express Entry draws held in June.

For Provincial Nominee Program

On June 9, Canada invited a total of 940 candidates that had previously received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) to apply for PR. The score cut-off was relatively high at 711, because all PNP candidates in the Express Entry pool automatically get 600 points added to their score. This means that candidates needed only 111 core points to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

In the previous PNP-only draw (May 26), Canada invited 500 candidates, and the score requirement was 713 points. This draw almost doubled the number of invites, and the cut-off score dipped two points.

For Canadian Experience Class

Just one day later, on June 10, Canada invited Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates to apply for permanent residence. In this draw, invited candidates needed a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 368.

This is the second lowest CRS requirement this year. The lowest was when Canada invited a whopping 27,332 candidates in a historic Express Entry draw. The CRS score was just 75.

Greater number of invitations

Canada has issued a greater number of invitations this year compared to the same time in 2020, thanks to the 27,332 principal applicants invited on February 13. The country also aims to welcome 411,000 in 2022 and 421,000 in 2023.
