EXPRESS ENTRY DRAW 172 - 461 POINTS - Canadian Experience Class (CEC) ONLY

Express Entry: Canada invites 4,750 CEC candidates

Today, the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced an Express Entry draw for candidates involved in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Today’s draw (172) issued 4,750 invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 461. The first Canadian Experience Class draw of 2021 saw the CRS score increase by 7 points compared to the previous CEC draw held on August 20, 2020.

The CEC is among the three programs managed under Canada's Express Entry system. The program is for skilled workers who have Canadian work experience and want to become permanent residents.

IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of September 12, 2020 at 20:46:32 UTC. This means that if more than one eligible candidate had the minimum CRS score, only those who submitted their Express Entry profiles before this date and time received invitations.

If you have any questions about express entry, permanent residence, provincial nominations or COVID-19 please contact us directly. 

Express Entry #172 – January 7, 2021
