Express Entry Draw 147

Today, the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced an Express Entry draw for candidates involved in the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP).
 
Today’s draw (147) was held at 13:11:44 UTC. 529 candidates received an invitation to apply (ITA) that had a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 718. An increase of 26 points compared to the previous Provincial Nominee Program draw held on April 29th.

The CRS score may seem high but candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 CRS points which explain the spike in required points for the PNP.

Today’s draw brings the total number of ITAs issued in 2020 to 34,829. This signifies that despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada is committed to reaching its immigration targets for 2020. 

IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of March 19, 2020, at 12:53:21 UTC. This simply means that all candidates with a CRS score of 718 or above, and previous candidates with a score of 718 or above who entered their profile in the Express Entry pool before the selected tie-breaking date and time will receive an invitation in this round.  

If you have any questions about express entry, permanent residence, provincial nominations or COVID-19 please contact us directly.
