Express Entry: 787 PNP candidates invited

Canada has invited 7,257 PNP candidates so far in 2022.

On April 13, Canada invited 787 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence. All invited candidates had previously received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) of at least 782. The minimum score was relatively high because Express Entry candidates get an automatic 600 points added to their score when they receive a provincial nomination. Without the nomination, the lowest-scoring candidates would have had 182 base points. In the previous invitation round, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 919 PNP candidates with scores of at least 785.
