Express Entry: Latest federal draw invites 381 PNP nominees

Express Entry Latest federal draw invites 381 PNP nominees

The federal government of Canada has held its fourth round of invitations in April 2021 – through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC] – under the Express Entry system.

On April 28, 2021, in the Express Entry draw #184, as many as 381 provincial nominees have been invited from the pool of candidates.

Those invited can now proceed to submitting their application to IRCC for their Canadian permanent residence.

This is the fourth Express Entry draw to be held this month. The previous draws of the month were held on – April 16, April 14, and April 1.

A provincial nominee is an individual that has been nominated, by any of the provincial or territorial [PT] governments, under the Provincial Nominee Program [PNP] of Canada.

As this was a PNP-only Express Entry draw, the ranking score of the lowest-ranked candidate was that of CRS 717.

A PNP nomination in itself fetches an Express Entry 600 ‘additional’ points towards their ranking score as per the Comprehensive Ranking System.

An Overview of Express Entry Draw #184

Number of invitations issued 381

[PNP nomination = CRS 600]

Tie-breaking rule applied March 16, 2021 at 21:20:50 UTC
Invitations issued by date [April 28] 30,400 [in 2020] | 55,771 [in 2021]

A tie-breaking rule is applied by IRCC to Express Entry profiles that have the lowest score required as per that federal draw. As per IRCC, “If more than one candidate has the lowest score, the cut-off is based on the date and time they submitted their Express Entry profiles.”

Simply put, Express Entry profiles created at an earlier date get priority over profiles that have been entered into the pool of candidates at a later date.

No all-program Express Entry draws have been held so far by IRCC in 2021. However, for a skilled worker, eligible for the Federal Skilled Worker Program [FSWP], awaiting all-program draws to resume, a recommended course of action in the present scenario would be that of securing a PNP nomination.

With a CRS 600 boost gained through a PNP nomination, an Express Entry candidate is guaranteed an invitation to apply [ITA] by IRCC in the subsequent Express Entry draw to be held.

So far in 2021, a total of 55,771 ITAs have been issued in the 14 IRCC Express Entry draws held so far this year.

For 2021, the Express Entry admissions target, as per the 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan, is that of 108,500.
