462 Express Entry candidates invited to apply for permanent residence with CRS scores of at least 734

Canada invited 462 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence on July 21, 2021.

All invited candidates had previously received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). This is why the score cut-off was relatively high at 734. Provincial nominees in the Express Entry pool automatically get 600 points added to their score. Without the nomination, the lowest-scoring candidate would have had 134 points.

In the previous PNP draw, Canada invited 627 candidates. The score requirement was 760. The new draw rendered fewer invitations and also a lower score cutoff.

Express Entry is a points-based system that manages immigration applications for the three Federal High Skilled programs, which include the: Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Program, and Federal Skilled Trades Program. Some PNPs also use Express Entry to invite candidates to apply for a provincial nomination.

If you are eligible for an Express Entry-managed program, you will get a score based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The CRS awards point based on skilled work experience, education, age, official language skills, and other factors.
