Express Entry #206 – 742 CRS Points - Provincial Nominee Program Only

Express Entry - Latest CRS score

Today, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced the 19th Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw of 2021. Draw #206 issued 761 invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 742. The CRS score increased by 10 points compared to the previous PNP drawheld on September 15th, 2021.
 
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.

The government is still on track to meet its ambitious target of welcoming over 400,000 newcomers throughout the year. Today's draw brought the total ITAs in 2021 to 109,696. 

IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of July 29, 2021 at 09:45:29 UTC. This means that candidates who had the minimum score of 742 are only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before the tie-breaking rule.
