Today, the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced another 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 (200) issued 3,000 invitations to apply (ITAs) to candidates with a minimum Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 404. 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 101,804. Almost doubling the numbers issued compared to this time last year which was 61,400 as of August 5th, 2020.
IRCC applied its tie-breaking rule with the timestamp of August 3rd, 2021 at 05:39:26 UTCC. This means that candidates who had the minimum score of 404 are only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before the tie-breaking rule.
