Canada Express Entry Draw

Canada Express Entry: 932 Invited to Apply for Canada PR

Published on : June 9, 2022

Canada holds another PNP-specific draw. This is the largest round of invitations to be held since March this year.

On June 8, 2022, Canada invited another 932 candidates to apply for permanent residence under the Express Entry system. A Canada PR by Express Entry application can only be submitted following an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from the federal department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

 It is the highest-ranked based on their scores allotted on the 1,200-point Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) matrix that are invited. As on June 6, 2022, there were a total of 215,316 profiles in the IRCC Express Entry pool of candidates. Of these, only 922 were in the CRS 601 to 1,200 range.

A nomination through any of the Express Entry linked streams under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is worth CRS 600 ‘additional’ points. With CRS 600 points for PNP nomination alone, PNP-specific Express Entry rounds generally tend to have a higher minimum CRS requirement. For example, the minimum CRS score required is 796 in the latest Express Entry draw. If you take into account CRS 600 points of PNP nomination, the human capital factor score would have been only 196.

With a tie-breaking rule of October 10, 2021 at 17:13:17 UTC applied, Express Entry candidates that received ITAs in the latest federal Express Entry round were those with - (1) a PNP nomination, (2) CRS 932 and above, and (3) their profile created before the date and time specified in the tie-breaking rule.

The tie-breaking rule is applied by IRCC to prioritize profiles that were created at an earlier date over those entered into the pool at a later point in time.

From July 2022, Express Entry draws are expected to be back to the pre-COVID-19 format. With the new National Occupational Classification (NOC) code to come into force later this year, 16 more occupations will become eligible for the Express Entry system. Three occupations will become ineligible under Canada’s new NOC.
