EXPRESS ENTRY DRAW #210: November 24, 2021
Canada invited 613 PNP candidates to apply for Canada PR in new Express Entry Draw on November 24
Canada conducted another Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)-specific Express Entry Draw on November 24, 2021.
A total of 613 Express Entry candidates, who had previously obtained nominations through an Express-entry aligned PNP, received Invitations to apply (ITAs) for Canadian Permanent Residency in this draw.
The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score cut-off threshold for this draw was 737 points.
Express Entry candidates, who received a provincial nomination, automatically get 600 additional points toward their overall CRS score. This is the reason that CRS cut-off score for PNP-specific draws is usually high.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) applied the tie-breaking rule and the time-stamp used was June 22 2021 at 20:19:59 PM UTC. This means the PNP candidates who had a CRS score of 737 or more and had submitted their Express Entry profile before this time and date, received an invitation to apply (ITA) in this round of invitations. If more than one applicant has the lowest CRS score, the cut-off is based on the date and time they submitted their profiles in the Express Entry pool.
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 (FSW), Federal Skilled Trades Class (FST) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
Eligible candidates enter the Express Entry pool, where they are issued a CRS score based on their age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French, among other factors. A set number of highest-ranked candidates are then invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws from the pool.
Since the beginning of 2021, Canada has only been conducting PNP and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) specific Express Entry draws as these candidates are highly likely to be in Canada already.
IRCC has held total 33 PNP-specific Express Entry draws so far in 2021 in which total 17,785 candidates have received invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residency.
