Invitations to the PNP candidates in the Express Entry pool continues in the latest draw.

ON Dec 10, 2021, Canada Invited 1,032 candidates under the PNP category to apply for permanent residence.

The minimum cut-off was 698. The cut-off scores have fluctuated little in recent weeks since IRCC has been holding PNP draws. This PNP draw is the biggest ever.

IRCC has only been holding PNP draws since September. This is now the seventh such draw in a row. In the previous Express Entry draw, IRCC invited 613 candidates with scores of at least 737.

Throughout the year, IRCC has only held Express Entry draws that target candidates from the PNP and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Due to restrictions on travel during the Covid-19 spread, IRCC played smart and focussed on candidates who were already present in the country. IRCC is focusing on converting Temporary Residence (TR) to Permanent Residence (PR).

Since the start of the pandemic, Canada has held 34 PNP-specific Express Entry draws in which 18,817 candidates received invitations to apply for permanent residence. In the same timeframe, Canada has held 27 CEC draws that rendered 133,868 invitations. There have only been 11 draws inviting Express Entry candidates from all programs, including the FSWP.

So far this year, Canada has invited more Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence than it did in 2020. Part of this is due to the February 13 draw when Canada invited all 27,332 CEC candidates in the pool at once.
