    About Provincial Nominee Program

    There are mainly four categories under, which Canada Immigration has declared their draws through the Express Entry system,

    • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
    • Federal Skilled Trades Programs (FSTP)
    • Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)
    • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

    According to the points criteria of an Express Entry system, there are 1200 points out of which candidates need to meet the cut-off points. The points system is somewhat like the admission system of the universities and schools. For instance, if a student wants to study in any particular institute, then she has to achieve the score as per the merit of the institute. Similarly, the Canada PR aspirants need to achieve the cut-off merit of Canada Immigration to obtain permanent residency in Canada.

    The interesting fact of the Express Entry system is 600 CRS points will be added in candidates’ express entry profiles on getting a nomination from any of the provinces.

    From last September 2021, Canada Immigration is only announcing Provincial Nominee Program draws. This is the ninth consecutive draw under the same category. Find the details in the below-given table

    Why Canada Immigration Has Not Declaring the FSW Draws?

    Exactly one year ago on 6 January 2021 during the Wuhan COVID-19 pandemic Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has declared its first draw of the year 2021 under the PNP category. Even on the day, the declared CRS cut-off was 813 points that were 5 points higher than the recent draw’s cut-off. In the entire 2021 year, the IRCC has not declared a single draw under the Federal Skilled Worker Category, so what is the reason behind it?

    According to some Canada Immigration consultants and as per the November 2021 announcement of the IRCC’s internal memo, Canada Immigration is focusing more on clearing their backlogs and as a result, allowing provinces to select the maximum number of candidates from their express entry profile. The nomination from the province will clear the pathway to the candidates to obtain the permanent residency as well as, the applications get diverted to the province to release the direct application burden on the federal.


    As the New Year has begun, plenty of Canada PR aspirants has huge hope from the IRCC to restart the FSWP (Federal Skilled Worker Program) category’s draws. As per our Canada Immigration Experts, a couple of years back on 23 December 2020 when the last all category draw was declared the cut-off was 468 CRS points. Suppose, we may consider the same sort of range 468 to 500 CRS points with active express entry profiles then it may cross more than 25000 candidates. The number shows that if the IRCC will going to declare the FSWP draw, that might go higher than the expectation and a few candidates may get an invitation to apply.
