The Provincial Nominee Program allows Canadian provinces and territories to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and are interested in settling in a specific province. The PNP is a key component of Canada’s immigration strategy, enabling provinces to address their unique labor market needs and economic priorities.

The high cut-off score of 739 points in this draw underscores the competitive nature of the PNP stream within the Express Entry system. Candidates who receive a provincial nomination are awarded an additional 600 CRS points, significantly boosting their chances of receiving an ITA.

In summary, the July 2, 2024, Express Entry draw highlights Canada’s ongoing efforts to bring in skilled workers through the Provincial Nominee Program. With 920 ITAs issued and a cut-off score of 739 points, this draw continues to advance Canada’s goal of attracting talented individuals who can contribute to the country’s economic and social prosperity.
