Canada invited 1002 immigration candidates to apply for permanent residency in new Express Entry Draw


Express Entry Draw #193: June 23, 2021

Canada continues to conduct program-specific Express Entry round of invitations. In new immigration draw conducted on June 23, 2021, a total of 1002 Express Entry Candidates who previously received a nomination from an Express Entry-aligned Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), received Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residency.

The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) threshold requirement for this draw was 742.

The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) applied a tie break in this draw and the time stamp used was February 18, 2021 at 04:04:56 UTC. That means all PNP candidates with a CRS score of at least 742 who had submitted their profiles in the Express Entry pool before this date & time, received invitations in this draw.

The Express Entry system is Canada’s primary source of skilled foreign workers. It manages the profiles of candidates under three Federal High Skilled economic class immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker Class, Federal Skilled Trades Class and Canadian Experience Class.

The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is the second most popular Canadian immigration program after Express Entry. Most of Canada’s provinces and territories have their own PNP streams (aligned with Federal Express Entry System and not aligned with Express Entry) that allow them to welcome foreign skilled professionals/workers who can help address their local labour market needs.

Candidates, who meet the selection criteria of an Express Entry-aligned PNP stream and successfully receive a provincial nomination invitation, can obtain additional 600 points toward their CRS Scores. This effectively guarantees them an ITA in subsequent Express Entry Draw.

Canada has already invited 82, 715 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residency so far in 2021. This is almost twice the number of ITAs issued than at the same time last year.
