Draw Summary

Draw Number: 210
Date of Draw: November 24, 2021
Number of Invitations Issued: 613
Minimum CRS: 737
Program Specified: Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
Tie-breaking rule: June 22 2021

As Federal Skilled Worker draws remain at a standstill, provinces continue to invite foreign workers directly from the Express Entry pool. This year, Canada has invited 13,000 PNP candidates under the Express Entry system. Today’s Express Entry draw marks the six consecutive draw targeting Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) candidates.

Candidates needed a CRS score of at least 737 to receive an invitation in today’s draw. The CRS cut-off for PNP draws is typically much higher than other program draws due to the additional 600 CRS points given to nominees in the Express Entry pool. Prior to receiving a nomination, the lowest ranking candidate in today’s Express Entry draw had a CRS score of just 137.

How can I be nominated by a province?

Each province operates their own nominee programs, each with their own requirements; many require a connection to the province to apply (work experience, a job offer, a family member, or education in the province). Other programs may operate with an Expression of Interest (EOI) system.

Many PNPs also hold draws and invite candidates directly from the Express Entry pool to apply for nomination. These draw requirements often change from draw to draw in response to labour market needs. For this reason, just by having an Express Entry profile, there is always a chance of receiving an invitation to apply for nomination.

Invitations issued in 2021

Canada remains on track to meet its ambitious immigration targets for 2021. So far this year, Canada has invited 112,653 candidates to apply for permanent residence through the Express Entry system.

Canada aims to welcome a record-breaking number of immigrants in 2021 of 401,000. Of this total, Canada plans to target 232,500 economic newcomers; 108,500 will include Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades, and Canadian Experience Class candidates. Another 80,800 immigrants will include Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) applicants.
