British Columbia and Manitoba issue over 200 ITAs each.
Saskatchewan, Ontario, Manitoba, and British Columbia have released results for their Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) this week.
Most Canadian provinces and territories (with the exception of Quebec and Nunavut) operate their own PNPs. Through these programs, interested candidates may be invited to apply for a provincial nomination. Although provincial nomination is not in itself the same as a permanent residence, it can act as the first step towards obtaining permanent resident status for eligible candidates by maximizing your CRS score. For instance, PNP candidates with Express Entry profiles who receive a nomination get 600 points added to their score. They also become eligible to be invited to apply for a PNP-specific round of invitations.
Following its launch in 1998, the PNP welcomed only 400 immigrants, but due to its success, it now welcomes more than 80,000 per year. The increase in the number of PNP admissions in Canada is due to the fact that the federal and provincial governments consider it an effective tool to promote the economic development of the country.
Express Entry draws are held every two weeks. After a long pause, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is now once again holding all-program Express Entry draws.
The first all-program draw since 2020 was held on July 6. Draws have continued on a bi-weekly basis and the most recent Express Entry draw was held on August 31 with 2,750 invitations issued with a minimum CRS of 516.
PNP draw results August 26- September 1
Saskatchewan held its largest draw of 2022 on September 1. The province invited a total of 941 candidates from Express Entry and Occupations-In-Demand categories through the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP).
The province invited 312 candidates from the Express Entry category and 629 from the Occupations-In-Demand category. The minimum Expression of Interest score in both categories was 61. All candidates invited had Educational Credential Assessments.
In July the province held four draws, inviting over 200 candidates each time, and has held draws each week throughout August, typically inviting over 600 candidates. Until July, Saskatchewan held draws only every two months.
