In a new Express Entry Draw, Canada has invited 284 Provincial Nominee Program candidates to apply for permanent residency status. The Comprehensive Ranking System score required by the PNP candidates was 778. Since the invited candidates already had 600 additional points through the provincial nomination, they required 118 points only in the Express Entry System. Candidates who submitted their express entry profiles in the system before 16th March 2021 at 16:09:32 UTC received invitations in this draw. This was used as a tie-break date and time. The Ministry announces the tie-break time as per the rule even when there is no actual tie.
