Canada has held a new round of invitations for provincial nominees today on November 10, 2021. Today’s draw marks the fifth consecutive Express Entry draw targeting Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates.

Draw Summary

Draw Number: 209
Date of Draw: November 10, 2021
Number of Invitations Issued: 775
Minimum CRS: 685
Program Specified: Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
Tie-breaking rule: August 12, 2021

A total of 775 candidates were invited to apply for Canadian permanent residency in the 209th Express Entry draw.

All candidates invited in today’s draw previously received a nomination from an Express Entry-aligned PNP. An additional 600 points are awarded to Express Entry candidates who receive a provincial nomination. Due to the additional points awarded to these candidates, the CRS score is typically much higher than other program draws. Prior to receiving a provincial nomination, the lowest ranking candidate had a CRS score of just 85.

As Federal Skilled Worker draws remain at a standstill, provinces have continued to recruit skilled workers from the Express Entry pool through nominee programs.

As the Canadian government continues to hold smaller PNP-specific Express Entry draws, FSW candidates anxiously await the next all-program draw.
