184th Express Entry Specific draw under PNP
A total number of 381 PNP candidates from the Express Entry pool were invited to apply for Permanent Residency on April 28, 2021. The minimum CRS score requirement was 717. IRCC ranks candidates in the Express Entry pool using a point-based system known as the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The highest-ranking candidates are selected from the pool and invited to apply for permanent residence.
A tie-breaking rule was applied in this draw. Candidates who submitted their profile before March 16, 2021, at 21:20:50 UTC were nominated. If more than one candidate has the lowest score, the cut-off is based on the date and time they submitted their Express Entry profiles.
Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points towards their CRS score which can be especially important to those Express Entry candidates having core CRS scores lower than the average cut-off scores in Federal draw invitations.
To date, a total of 8 PNP draws were held in the Year 2021. It may be recalled that the last PNP draw was held on April 14, 2021, invited Express Entry candidates with a CRS score of 753. The total ITAs so far this year amount to 55,771 as illustrated by the graph below.
