IRCC Invited 932 Candidates through Express Entry
On June 8, 2022, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued 932 Invitations to Apply (ITA) to candidates under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) in the new PNP-targeted draw. In round #224, the cut-off score was 796 points, 55 points more compared to the previous PNP draw.
The tie-breaking rule for this round was October 10, 2021, at 17:13:17 UTC. As of June 3, 2022, there are 215,316 profiles registered in the Express Entry pool, 4,223 fewer compared to the previous update. In 2022, Canada issued 10,152 ITAs through Express Entry.
IRCC issued a record 114,431 ITAs in 2021, all to Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and PNP candidates. It beat the previous record of 107,350 set in 2020.
The newest draw saw the tie-breaking rule implemented on October 10, 2021, at 1.13 pm EST. If more than one candidate had the minimum CRS score, only those who had submitted their Express Entry profiles before this date and time received invitations.
Canada holds another PNP-specific draw. This is the largest round of invitations to be held since March this year.
|Express Entry Draw #224 – June 8, 2022|

|Minimum score cutoff||CRS 796|
|In 2022 so far – ● Total draws: 12 ● Total invitations: 10,152|
Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada have been focused on clearing the present significant backlog before it resumes issuing ITAs in larger numbers.
Canada Has So far Issued 9,365 Invitations, All to PNP Candidates, in 2022
This is the highest-ranked based on its scores allotted on the invited 1,200-point Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) matrix. As on June 6, 2022, there were a total of 215,316 profiles in the IRCC Express Entry pool of candidates. Of these, only 922 were in the CRS 601 to 1,200 ranges.
A nomination through any of the Express Entry linked streams under the PNP (Provincial Nominee Program) is worth CRS 600 ‘extra’ points. With the CRS 600 points for PNP nomination alone, Provincial Nominee Program-specific Express Entry rounds generally tend to have a higher minimum CRS requirement.
For example, the lowest CRS score required is 796 in the latest Express Entry draw. If you take into account CRS 600 points of PNP nomination, the human capital factor score would have been only 196.
