Express Entry Draw : July 7, 2021
Canada invited 627 Express Entry candidates who previously received a nomination from an Express Entry-aligned Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) to apply for permanent residency in new Express Entry draw on July 7.
The draw had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cutoff threshold of 760. The CRS score requirement is quite high since immigration candidates who meet the selection criteria of an Express Entry-aligned PNP stream and successfully receive a provincial nomination invitation, can automatically obtain additional 600 points toward their CRS Scores.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) applied a tie break in this draw. That means all PNP candidates with a CRS score of 760 and above who had submitted their profiles in the Express Entry pool before June 14, 2021 at 07:44:05 UTC received Invitations To apply (ITAs) for Canadian Permanent Residency in this draw.
The Express Entry system is Canada’s primary source of skilled foreign workers. It is an online system used by IRCC to manage and process applications for skilled workers who want to become permanent residents of Canada through three federal economic immigration programs – The Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC), Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC).
Express Entry is a competitive immigration system. All eligible candidates are ranked against one another according to Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), which award them scores out of 1200 based on their age, education, language proficiency, work experience & other factors.
The high-ranking candidates are then invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence through regular draws conducted by IRCC.
The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is the second most popular Canadian immigration program after Express Entry. Most of Canada’s provinces and territories have their own PNP streams (aligned with Federal Express Entry System and not aligned with Express Entry) that allow them to welcome foreign skilled professionals/workers who can help address their local labour market needs.
Canada has now invited 89,342 Express Entry candidates so far in 2021. This is almost twice the number of invitations issued by IRCC at the same time last year.
