Today, Express Entry Draw invited 613 profiles to apply for permanent residency (PR). Applicants having a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 737 or above received the invitations. This draw was only for applicants who had a provincial nomination from one of the Canadian province. CRS cut off score increased by 52 points as compared to previous draw which declared one of the lowest cut off since the beginning of express entry PNP draws. Last Express Entry PNP draw was on November 10 which declared cut of score of 685.
Total of 13,000 profiles have been invited in Express Entry PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) only draws this year. In these draws, highest CRS cut off was 813 in January. Last 6 express entry draws were PNP only as Canada has already met it’s target for economic immigration this year. However, IRCC is full of surprises, so we would suggest Canada aspirants outside and inside the country to create an express entry profile, if they are eligible.
