On July 22, Canada invited 557 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence.
Candidates who received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) were invited in the latest draw. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score was 687. So far in 2020, this is the lowest CRS requirement for a PNP-specific draw.
These candidates had previously received provincial nominations and were awarded an additional 600 points toward their overall score. This is the 9th PNP specific draw since Canada closed its borders back in March in an effort to stop the spread of coronavirus.
