Express Entry Draw 171 - 813 CRS Points - PNP Only

Express Entry #171 – January 6, 2021

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 (171) issued 250 invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 813. The first Provincial Nominee Program draw of 2021 saw the CRS score increase by 42 points compared to the previous PNP draw held on August 19, 2020.

Candidates with a Provincial Nomination receive an additional 600 CRS points which explain the spike in required points for this draw as only candidates with Nomination Certificates were selected.

IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of November 2, 2020 at 11:11:52 UTC. This means that if more than one eligible candidate had the minimum CRS score, only those who submitted their Express Entry profiles before this date and time received invitations.

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

CRS - Jan 6th

* Candidates must be involved in the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).
