On March 31, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held a new round in Express Entry. 

In draw #180, IRCC targeted candidates under the Provincial Nominee Program. 

This time the Immigration Department invited 284 provincial candidates, and the cut-off score in this round was 778 points, 96 points more compared to the previous PNP-specific draw that was held on March 17. 

The tie-breaking rule for this round March 16, 2021 at 16:09:32 UTC. 

As of March 29, 2021, there are 165,476 profiles registered in the pool, 3,356 profiles more compared to the previous update. 

In total, Canada invited 44,124 foreign nationals to apply for permanent residence through Express Entry in 2021.

However, and due to restrictions on Canada's border entry points for non-essential international travel, IRCC has been focusing on programs and applicants that are inside Canada, and the Express Entry draws have been focusing on applicant in the CEC and PNP. 

IRCC issued bi-weekly draws inviting candidates that are in the Express Entry pool and that have applied through the Canadian Experience Program or Provincial Nominee Program PNP and the Federal Skilled Workers program.  Some programs such as the Federal Skilled Workers program did have any draws in the last three months. Nevertheless, the Canadian government is still in need to welcome high numbers of new immigrants and permanent residents in order to meet their target for year 2021.
