What are the benefits of applying to an Express Entry-linked PNP category?

In today’s applying for permanent residency via the Express Entry PNP pathway is one of the most popular ways to do so. This is because when you get a provincial nomination certificate against your valid and active EE profile, you get an addition of 600 CRS points in the EE pool, This addition, increases your overall CRS rank. IRCC holds periodic Express Entry draws. Where it selects applicants who match the draw cut-off or have a higher CRS score.

So, with the help of a nomination, you are able to get a higher CRS rank in the pool. This increases your chances of getting an ITA to submit a Canada PR visa application to IRCC. This is the reason why everyone in today’s time is opting to go via this route.
