Express Entry #208 – 744 CRS Points - Provincial Nominee Program Only

Express Entry - Latest CRS score - 744


Today, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held its fourth consecutive Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw. The 21st PNP draw of 2021, issued 888 invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 744. The CRS score increased by 24 points compared to the previous PNP drawheld on October 13th, 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 large draw brought the total ITAs in 2021 to 111,265, breaking last year's record of 107,350.

IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of October 7th at 16:38:21 UTC. This means that candidates who had the minimum score of 744 are only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before the tie-breaking rule.
