Express Entry: Canada invited 681 PNP candidates in new draw
On October 13th, Canada invited 681 candidates to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence (PR) in the newest Express Entry draw. The draw targeted candidates who had previously received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). This is the 20th PNP-specific draw of the year.
The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score was 720. But remember, the score cut-off is relatively high because all PNP candidates in the EE pool automatically get 600 points added to their score. These candidates now have 60 days to apply for permanent residence.
As usual, IRCC is using a 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: March 16, 2021 at 07:53:28 UTC
In the previous PNP draw, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 761 candidates with scores of at least 742. The new draw is smaller than the previous draw, but it has a lower score cutoff too.
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 EE 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
