By Vijay Lala



Immiboards ― Canada has invited 463 PNP Candidates in Express Entry draw 201 on August 18, 2021. The Comprehensive Ranking Score cut-off decreased to 751 points compared to the previous PNP draw of 760.

This means that candidates needed a CRS score of at least 751 points to receive an invitation from this Express Entry draw. 

The cut-off score is higher because IRCC targeted this draw towards candidates having a provincial nomination. Only the candidates from the Provincial Nominee Program were eligible for this round of invitations.

Provincial nominees get 600 additional points in the Express Entry profile.

Previous Express Entry PNP Draw was held on on August 4, 2021 and compared to it, we see a decrease in candidates who received an invitation in this draw. There were 463 invitees this time around compared to 512 from the previous draw.
