Canada held the new PNP draw on November 10th.
This is the Second-lowest CRS for a PNP draw during the pandemic. Canada invited 775 Express entry candidates to apply for Permanent Residence.
All of the invited candidates had previously received nominations through a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Since provincial nominees are automatically priced at 600 points, the score was 685. Without the nomination, the nominee with the fewest points would have received only 85 points.
Recently, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) only attracted PNP applicants from the Express Entry pool. In the previous draw, IRCC invited 888 applicants with scores of at least 744.
Today’s draw had the second-lowest cut-off score in this category since IRCC started running PNP-only draws in March 2020. The lowest score requirement for a PNP draw was produced in March 2021.
