express entry draw 2021

Express Entry: Canada invited 462 PNP candidates in new draw

Today, July 21st, Canada invited 462 candidates to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence (PR) in the newest Express Entry draw.

This time, the draw targeted candidates who had previously received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score was 734. But remember, the score cut-off is relatively high because all PNP candidates in the Express Entry pool automatically get 600 points added to their score. This means that candidates needed only 134 core points to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

In this draw, IRCC is using its tie-breaking rule. This explains that if more than one candidate has the lowest score, the cut-off is based on the date and time they submitted their EE profiles.

Tie-breaking rule: April 11, 2021, at 10:56:32 UTC.

Previous Express Entry Draw

In the previous PNP draw, Canada invited 627 candidates with a minimum CRS score of 760 points. Currently, Canada has invited 94,304 EE candidates to apply for permanent residence. Last year, around this time, Canada invited almost 54,000 candidates.

Express Entry Canada in 2021: Is there hope?

What to do if you receive an invitation to apply?

If you were invited to apply for permanent residence, you’ll get a message in your account telling you:

  • Which program you’ve been invited to apply for
  • What to do next

Also, you’ll need to show proof of the information you gave in your Express Entry profile. IRCC will assess whether the information you submit in your application is different from what was in your profile. If the information is false or left out important details, IRCC could:

  • Refuse your application
  • Find you inadmissible
  • Bar you for 5 years from applying to come to Canada for any reason
