The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) allows Canadian provinces and territories to nominate skilled individuals from other countries through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

It conducts periodic draws inviting eligible candidates to get a nomination and apply for permanent residency in the country. Here are the latest draws held in September.

Alberta PNP Draw

The province of Alberta recently invited 500 Express Entry candidates to apply for a nomination with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 300 points.

This is the largest draw held by the Alberta Immigrant Nominee Program (AINP), with the previous record being the March 2019 draw which invited 473 candidates.

Ontario PNP Draw

In the draw held on September 14, the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) invited a total of 691 international students who had completed their studies in the province. 

Out of the 691 international students invited, 627 had completed their Masters, while 64 candidates had completed their doctoral studies.

Regarding their provincial score for eligibility, students from the Master’s Graduate stream had to have at least 35 points, while those under the PhD Graduate stream had to have at least 16 points.

Express Entry PNP Draw

On Wednesday, the IRCC issued Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to 521 candidates under the Express Entry PNP. These candidates had received a nomination from any of the country’s provinces and had a minimum CRS score of 732 points. 

After receiving a nomination, the candidates get an additional 600 points to the CRS score, resulting in a higher cut-off score. The candidates now have 60 days to apply for permanent residency.
