EXPRESS ENTRY DRAW 174 - 454 CRS POINTS - CEC ONLY

Express Entry #174 – January 21, 2021

Today, the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced an Express Entry draw for candidates involved in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). This is the second Express Entry draw of the week as yesterday IRCC released an Express Entry draw for candidates involved in the Provincial Nomination Program (PNP).

Today’s draw (174) issued 4,626 invitations to apply (ITA) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 454. The second Canadian Experience Class draw of 2021 saw the CRS score decrease by 7 points compared to the previous CEC draw held on January 7th, 2021.

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 July 23, 2020, at 17:32:00 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.
