A total of 26,618 invitations have been issued to Express Entry candidates so far this year

Canada has held another round of Express Entry invitations, inviting candidates who had provincial nominations.

Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued 118 invitations to Express Entry candidates on April 15. Invited candidates required a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 808.

All of these candidates had previously received provincial nominations and were awarded an additional 600 points toward their overall score. This means without the provincial nomination the candidate would have had a CRS of 208.

To be clear, if you were an Express Entry candidate in the pool who obtained at least a 208 on the human capital characteristics of your CRS score, plus a provincial nomination, you would have received an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in this draw.
