It was the first program-specific draw for Express Entry. The last one was conducted on July 2022.
The candidates in the Express Entry draw have already been issued provincial nominations. PNPs allow provinces of Canada to nominate international individuals who have the required skills and experience to contribute to the workforce and population objectives. Almost all the provinces and territories of Canada have their PNPs aligned with the system of Express Entry. Quebec and Nunavut have their own PNP eligibility criteria.
Being nominated by a province increases the CRS score of a candidate by 600 points. In this draw, the candidates in the Express Entry pool needed a CRS score of at least 133 to be eligible to apply for the Canada PR.
