Today, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced the seventh Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw of 2021. Draw #182 issued 266 invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 753.
The PNP is aligned with the federal Express Entry system. Candidates that receive a provincial nomination automatically obtain an additional 600 CRS points.
The program is designed for workers who have the skills, education and work experience to contribute to the economy of a specific province or territory. Each province and territory have their own “streams” which vary depending on the province’s needs.
Today’s draw brings the total ITAs to 49,390. Almost double the numbers issued compared to this time last year.
IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of March 01, 2021, at 15:22:18 UTC. This means that Candidates who had the minimum score of 753 are only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile the tie-breaking rule.
