Today, the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced another irregular Express Entry draw for candidates involved in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
The CEC is among the three programs managed under Canada's Express Entry system. The program is designed for skilled workers who have Canadian work experience and want to become permanent residents.
Draw (190) issued 5,956 invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 380, the second-lowest CRS score in 2021. The CRS score dropped 17 points compared to the previous CEC draw held on May 26th, 2021.
The government is still on track to meet its ambitious target of welcoming over 400,000 newcomers throughout the year. Today's draw brought the total ITAs to 74,773. Almost doubling the numbers issued compared to this time last year.
IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of May 28, 2021, at 14:45:22 UTC. This means that candidates who had the minimum score of 380 are only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before the tie-breaking rule.
