Canada Express Entry Draw #197 Summary

Date of Draw: July 21st 2021
Number of Invitations Issued: 462
Minimum CRS: 734
Program Specified: Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
Tie-breaking rule: April 11, 2021
Why is the CRS cut-off so high in PNP draws?
To receive an invitation in the Express Entry PNP draw, candidates must receive a nomination from an Express Entry-aligned PNP. Once a candidate receives a nomination, their CRS score increases by an additional 600 points.
How can I be nominated by a province?
Each province has their own criteria for nominee programs. Many provinces require some type of connection to the province to be eligible to apply.
Many provinces also hold draws and invite candidates directly from the Express Entry pool to apply for nomination. These draw requirements often change from draw to draw in response labour market needs. Therefore, just by having an Express Entry profile, there is always a chance of receiving an invitation to apply for nomination.
