Express Entry: Canada invites 829 PNP candidates after announcing all-program draws will resume in July

Express Entry PNP Draw, Apr 29 (1)

Canada has issued 829 invitations for the Express Entry immigration candidates to apply for permanent residence on April 27th, 2022. Previously, all the invited candidates were sent nominations from Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and had a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) with a minimum score of 772. The score was comparatively high, as the Express Entry immigration candidates attain 600 points automatically added to their score when they receive a PNP. The candidates who scored the lowest without the nomination would have had the base points of 172.

Also, in the invitation round conducted earlier on April 13th, 2022, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited 787 PNP candidates with a minimum score of 782.

Here are the detailed information about the Express Entry draws held in April 2022:

Date Number of invitations issued Minimum score
April 27, 2022 829 772

CEC and FSWP draws to continue in early July

The Express Entry invitations will be continued for the immigration candidates under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) by early July,” stated Sean Fraser, the immigration minister of Canada. Also, more of the new Express Entry applications will be processed within the service standard of six months.

The invitations from the CEC and FSWP have come right in time when Canada is dealing with record-high job vacancies and record-low unemployment.

Meanwhile, IRCC plans to invite 55,000 Express Entry permanent residents in 2022. Earlier to this, Express Entry was the primary gateway for the immigrants from the new-economic class landing in Canada. It is predicted that the IRCC aims to invite more than 110,000 immigrants by 2024 under the Express Entry program.
