New Express Entry Draw Today Invites 667 PNP Profiles
Express Entry Draw today issued 667 invitations to apply (ITAs) for permanent residency (PR), targeting the profiles having a provincial nomination.
Invitations were sent to Express Entry profiles with a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 748 or above.
This means Express Entry profiles having just the score of 148 + 600 points from provincial nomination were invited in this draw.
The CRS cut off score has reduced by only 43 points as compared to February 15 Express Entry PNP draw.
Below are the details of Express Entry draw announced today:
- Provincial Nominee Program
- Number of invitations issued: 667
- Rank required to be invited to apply: 667 or above
- Date and time of round: March 01, 2023, at 17:24:39 UTC
- CRS score of lowest-ranked candidate invited: 748
- Tie-breaking rule: December 12, 2022, at 10:48:12 UTC
Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Express Entry draws include all Express Entry profiles from the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) with an approved nomination from one of the Canadian provinces.
According to the CRS score distribution of candidates in the Express Entry pool as of March 1, 2023, the next draw is expected to be no program specified or FSW or CEC targeted draw.
Reason is because only 606 profiles have a CRS score of 601-1200. Furthermore, there are only 2,129 profiles having a CRS score between 501-600.
We hope that this next draw comes later today or tomorrow similar to the FSW draw announced on February 2 after the PNP draw on February 1.
After the first quarter of 2023, the IRCC may begin conducting targeted Express Entry draws with new proposed categories.
Full CRS score distribution of applicants in the Express Entry pool as of March 1, 2023 is shown below.

What is Canada Express Entry System?
The Express Entry system is the quickest way to become a permanent resident (PR) of Canada.
It has a usual processing period of 6 months after accepting the invitation to apply (ITA) and submitting documents.
The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), a points-based system, is used to score applicant profiles in the Express Entry system.
Profiles with a score greater than the CRS cut off declared in a draw are sent an Invitation to Apply (ITA), which invites them to apply for permanent residency.
The Express Entry system manages applications for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).
Applicants in the Express Entry pool with profiles in one of the aforementioned programs and a provincial nomination receive 600 extra points.
