The new Express Entry draw is the fourth consecutive round of invitations to invite only PNP candidates
Canada invited 888 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence on October 27.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited candidates who had scores of at least 744. All invited candidates had received an automatic 600 points because they had a provincial nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Without the nomination, the lowest-scoring candidates would only have scores of 144.
This is the third largest PNP draw of the year. The largest was 1,002 Express Entry candidates invited on June 23, and the second largest was 940 on June 9.
In the previous PNP draw, IRCC invited 681 candidates with scores of at least 720.
