Canadian Experience Class

Express Entry: CRS 400 For CEC Candidates

Published on : April 30, 2021


CRS requirement has dropped to 17 points as compared to the earlier CEC-only draw. This remains the second-lowest score ever for a specific CEC draw. 

Later on April 29, Canada invited close to 6000 Express Entry candidates for applying for Permanent Residency. IRCC (Immigration Refugees And Citizenship Canada) invited candidates having scores of atleast 400, and also who are eligible for permanent residence through the Canadian Experience Class

Going by the tie-break rule, candidates having a minimum score of 400 were invited in case they submitted their Express Entry profile before April 24, 2021, at 15:24:49 UTC. 

IRCC has the responsibility of publishing the cut-off time for the tie-break rule as an administrative requirement. David Cohen, Senior Attorney of Campbell Cohen quoted, “Candidates need to have one year of Canadian work experience to be eligible for the CEC. This experience is highly valuable in Canada’s job market. As such, we see many CEC candidates employed within their first year of landing.”

More Focus On Temporary Residence In Canada

IRCC seems to have held two specific Express Entry draws targeting candidates who wish to settle in Canada. CEC candidates cater to Canada only and IRCC estimates about close to 90 percent are applying domestically.

On the other hand, also are candidates who have previously opted through the Express Entry, Provincial Nominee Program   (PNP). For receiving a nomination, PNP candidates need work as well as study experience. As such these applicants have a high proportion of luck already in the country. 

The new Express Entry draw issued ITAs close to 61,771 in 2021. However, this year the number seems higher in part because of the huge Express Entry draw on February 13. 

Also, for aiming at a target of inviting 401,000 new immigrants in 2021, IRCC has created six new modules aimed at essential workers, along with international student graduates.
