Express Entry: CRS 717 for PNP candidates, lowest of 2021

April 28, 2021

Canada invited 381 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence on April 28.


Invited candidates needed to have previously received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). This is why the cutoff score was 717 because PNP candidates automatically get 600 points added to their human capital score. This is the lowest score requirement of any PNP-only draw held so far this year. Without the nomination, the lowest-scoring candidates would have had 117 points.
