Canada Express Entry Draw

On January 20, 2021, another 374 Express Entry candidates received invitations from the federal government of Canada under the Express Entry system.

Provincial nominees that had been nominated under the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP] were eligible.

As a tie-breaking rule of September 5, 2020 at 19:39:04 UTC was applied, candidates that had the minimum CRS of 741 were issued invitations, provided they had submitted their Express Entry profile before the date and time as per the tie-breaking rule.
