Canada invites 1,002 PNP candidates with a CRS of at least 742
All invited candidates had previously received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). The cut-off score was 742, which is a high score because all PNP candidates in the Express Entry pool automatically get 600 points added to their score.
In this draw, candidates who had the minimum score were only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before February 18, 2021 at 04:04:56 UTC. Previously Canada invited 940 PNP candidates to apply for permanent residence, and the score requirement was 711 points.
