Express Entry: 671 PNP candidates invited
Canada invited 671 Express Entry candidates to send in their applications for permanent residence on March 8.
Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited candidates who had a minimum score of 739. This score requirement seems high, but that is because everyone invited had previously received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). As of March 1, 2021, there are 147,688 profiles registered in the system, 5,026 profiles fewer compared to the previous update. After the largest draw in history, many in-Canada candidates registered in the pool waiting for the new massive invitation round for candidates with Canadian work experience. As of now, Canada issued 38,657 ITAs through Express Entry in 2021.
