Express Entry #213 – 808 CRS Points - Provincial Nominee Program Only

Express Entry - Latest CRS scoreToday, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held its ninth consecutive Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draw. The first PNP draw of 2021 issued 392 invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 808. The CRS score increased by 88 points compared to the previous PNP draw held on December 22nd, 2021.

The PNP aligns with the federal Express Entry system. Candidates who 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 may vary depending on the province’s needs.

2021 was the first year in the history of Express Entry where no Federal Skilled Worker Program candidates were invited to apply for permanent residence. Due to the pandemic and travel restrictions, IRCC shifted focus to frequent draws for the Canadian Experience Class and the Provincial Nominee Program, as candidates from these streams are likely to already be in Canada. 

IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of March 04, 2021, at 16:57:50 UTC. Meaning candidates with a minimum score of 808, are invited to apply if they had submitted their Express Entry profile before the tie-breaking rule.
