Express Entry Draw- 500 Invitations Issued to PNP candidates

May 27 , 2021 By Rajneesh Kumar

Express Entry Draw- 500 Invitations Issued to PNP candidates

In a latest program-specific Express Entry draw held on 26th May, the IRCC invited total 500 PNP candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residency. To be invited in this invitation round, candidates required to have a provincial nomination and a CRS score of 713 or above.


Since all the provincial nominees get additional 600 CRS points for their nomination, it clearly means that if we exclude the nomination points, then the lowest scoring candidate would have had a score of only 113.
