In the latest round of the Express Entry draw, the Federal Government of Canada has invited 600 immigration applicants to apply for permanent residency in the country.
Candidates with a provincial nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and a minimum score of 771 in Canada’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) were invited to apply for permanent residency in the country in this round of the draw.
Following the latest round of the Express Entry draw, a record 62,450 immigration candidates have been issued invitations to apply (ITAs) for permanent residency so far this year.
The Express Entry manages the pool of immigration candidates for three of Canada’s most significant economic immigration programs – Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
Candidates with the highest score in the Express Entry pool are invited to apply for permanent residency in the country by the Federal Government.
The CRS awards points to candidates based on a number of factors, such as age, education, work experience and language proficiency.
Moreover, being nominated by a provincial government under one of Canada’s PNPs awards 600 points to immigration applicants, which effectively guarantees an ITA or Invitation To Apply for permanent residency in the country.
