149 Express Entry Invites 385 PNP Candidates With CRS 757
Express Entry candidates who had provincial nominations were invited to apply for permanent residence in the May 27 draw. A total of 385 Invitations to Apply were issued to Express Entry candidates in the May 27 invitation round.
Provincial Nominee Program PNP Candidates in the Express Entry pool are awarded an additional 600 points on top of their original human capital score. This is why the minimum Comprehensive Ranking System score requirement was 757 for this draw. Without the additional points from the provincial nomination, invited candidates would have had a human capital score of 157.
So far immigration targets are on course to exceed last year’s levels. Even with travel restrictions in place, there have still been more ITAs issued this year than at the same time in 2019. As of today, May 27, a total of 38,585 Express Entry candidates have been invited to apply for permanent residence in 2020.
Canadian immigration is managed by the federal government. Express Entry is the government’s system for managing immigration applications for three economic-class programs: Federal Skilled Worker, Federal Skilled Trades, and Canadian Experience Class.
The people who are eligible for one of these programs submit their profile into the Express Entry pool, where they are given a CRS score based on their human capital factors such as age, work experience, education, and language ability in English or French.
