Canada invited 463 provincial nominees in the Express Entry pool to apply for permanent residence on August 18.
In order to receive an invitation, candidates needed a score of at least 751 with a nomination from an Express Entry-linked Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). It is normal for PNP draws to have high score cutoffs because the provincial nomination itself is worth 600 points. In the previous PNP draw, Immigration,Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited candidates with scores of at least 760.
Candidates with the minimum score were only invited if they submitted their profiles before April 13th, 2021
