The Comprehensive Rating Score (CRS) of 36 points is required in the new invitation round which is lower than the previous Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) only draw. In April, 381 candidates of Express Entry are invited by Canada so as to apply for their permanent residence. The candidates who are invited must have their previously received nomination from PNP.

Due to this reason, the cutoff score was about 717 as 600 points automatically get added to PNP candidates to their human capital score. This year PNP draw has the lowest score requirement. The scoring candidates who have no nomination will have 117 points. According to the tie-breaker rule, the candidates with a minimum score of about 717 were only invited only if they submitted their profile of Express Entry before March 16, 2021, at 21:20:50 UTC.
