Express Entry #209 – 685 CRS Points - Provincial Nominee Program Only

Express Entry - Latest CRS score

Today, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held its fifth consecutive Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw. The 22nd PNP draw of 2021, issued 775 invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 685. The CRS score decreased by 59 points compared to the previous PNP drawheld on October 27th, 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 112,040, breaking last year's record of 107,350.

IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of August 12th, 2021 at 20:05:46 UTC. This means that candidates who had the minimum score of 685 are only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before the tie-breaking rule.
