Canada invited 557 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence on July 22, 2020.

Only candidates who had received a nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) were invited in the latest draw, which is why the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut off was 687. This is the lowest CRS requirement for a PNP-specific draw so far in 2020.

All these candidates had previously received provincial nominations and were awarded an additional 600 points toward their overall score. This means candidates who received an Invitation to Apply. (ITA) in this round would have needed a CRS score of at least 87 for their human capital without the provincial nomination.
