Candidates who obtain a nomination certificate or job offer are awarded 600 CRS points and obtain an ITA for Canadian PR at a consecutive draw from the pool.

A recent year-end Express Entry report confess that, in 2015, more candidates with Core CRS scores of less than 450 were issued Invitations to Apply for Canadian PR than candidates with 450 or more points.
