Express Entry #196 – 369 CRS Points - Canadian Experience Class Only

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

Draw (196) issued 4,500 invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 369, the fifth CEC draw in a row to dip below 400 CRS points. 

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.

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 93,842. Almost doubling the numbers issued compared to this time last year which was 53,800 as of July 8th, 2020. 

IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of June 10, 2021, at 22:46:37 UTC. This means that candidates who had the minimum score of 369 are only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before the tie-breaking rule.
