The biggest PNP-only draw ever

Canada invited 940 candidates through Express Entry draw on June 9, 2021. These candidates can now apply for Permanent Residence as they received a provincial nomination through respective PNP. This is the reason the score cut off was as high as 711.

When receiving a nomination from one of the Provinces, aspiring migrators who have submitted their profiles in the Express Entry Pool are awarded 600 additional points. As candidates having 111 points or above, have been receiving Invitation to Apply (ITA), a nomination which adds 600 points under PNP ensures that the nominated candidate will be receiving Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in the succeeding express entry draw.
