Express Entry 156th PNP Draw_July 22, 2020
On July 22, 2020, 557 PNP candidates received their Invitation to Apply letters (ITAs). The CRS cut-off score for this draw was at 687. Only candidates who were nominated from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and who submitted their profile before November 11, 2019, at 08:51:21 UTC were invited to apply for Permanent Residence. 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.
It should be pointed out that Express Entry candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points towards their CRS score, which explains the higher cut-off score. The requirement for basic human capital points would have been only 87 points without the additional points from the provincial nomination.
July 22, 2020, Express Entry PNP specific draw has seen the lowest CRS requirement so far in 2020.
