636 PNP Candidates Invited for Express Entry Draw

In the latest Express Entry draw, Canada invited 636 candidates to apply for permanent residence on June 22.

The minister of Canada immigration offers the date for the Express Entry next draw for all the programs. They invited 636 PNP candidates in the latest Express Entry draw which was held on 22 June 2022.

The minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score required for this draw was 752. All the candidates in this draw have been previously nominated by a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and must fulfill the requirement of the minimum CRS score. The candidate who scored the lowest had 152 base points without the nomination. But because of the Express Entry, extra 600 points to the candidates who receive the provincial nomination saves the lowest candidate and helps to get Canada PR.

In an exclusive interview at the Collision Conference in Toronto with Canadian Immigration Minister Sean Fraser, he said that IRCC is aiming to resume all-program Express Entry draws on July 6. People are guessing that this can be the last PNP draw. But he hesitantly said he is uncertain about some things and expects to resume all-program draws on July 6.

Sean Fraser stated in April of last year that Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) applicants will once again get the Express Entry invites by early July 2022, although Fraser did not specify a timeframe at the time. Since the announcement, IRCC’s application inventory for the three Express Entry programs increased. It has 31,603 as of June 1 as opposed to 40,889 at the end of April. But the IRCC has been conducting draws only for PNP applicants since September 2021. In the last Express Entry draw, with the cut-off 796, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 932 candidates. To recover from the Express Entry backlog, caused by the pandemic, Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada stopped the draws for Canada Experience Class and Federal Skilled Worker Program applicants.

Even though all-program drawings could restart in two weeks according to Sean Fraser, it may not be the end of the PNP draw forever. The PNP is crucial to assist the economic growth of all Canadian regions that’s why IRCC periodically conducted only PNP draws even during the pandemic. Additionally, Bill C-19, which would enable IRCC to invite applicants whose backgrounds align with the government’s economic aims, is close to passing in the Canadian Parliament. For applicants who work in a field where there is a labor shortage, the government may, for instance, arrange draws tailored to that field.

What Is Express Entry?

Express Entry is the fastest pathway to Canada. The Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program and the Canadian Experience Class are Canada’s three most popular immigration programs under Express Entry. The Express Entry candidates can get a boost of extra 600 points if they get the nomination from any PNP. The Comprehensive Ranking Method (CRS), a points-based system used by Express Entry, ranks candidate profiles. The highest-scoring applicants are given an Invitation to Apply (ITA) after which they can submit a permanent residency application.
