Today, the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced a second Express Entry draw within 24 hours for candidates involved in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
Today’s draw (148) was held at 12:46:53 UTC. 3,371 candidates received an invitation to apply (ITA) that had a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 447. The CEC draws are continuing to drop with the latest CRS score of 447 being the lowest since January 2019.
Today’s draw brings the total number of ITAs issued in 2020 to 38,200. This signifies that despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Canada is committed to reaching its immigration targets for 2020.
IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of December 23, 2019, at 10:01:06 UTC. This simply means that all candidates with a CRS score of 447 or above, and previous candidates with a score of 447 or above who entered their profile in the Express Entry pool before the selected tie-breaking date and time will receive an invitation in this round.
