Canada held the 3rd Express Entry draw in a row for candidates who had provincial nominations to apply for permanent residence on 13th October 2021. Including the latest draw, Canada has now held 20 draws just for PNP candidates this year.

Out of the cutoff score, i.e., 720, the candidates holding the Provincial Nomination Program(PNP) nomination were awarded an automatic 600 points as an advantage to their total CRS score. The latest draw had fewer PNP candidates with higher scores in the pool.
By 2021, IRCC has invited only PNP and Canadian Experience Class Candidates through the bi-weekly Express Entry draws and has not held any all-program Express Entry draw since December 2020.
When compared, IRCC issued a total of 107,350 invitations for Express Entry in the year 2020 and 110,377 Express Entry invitations by 2021.
