Canada held CEC Express Entry CRS draw on 16th April 2021 which is the second largest in the history of Express Entry. After the previous draw on April,1 for the new immigrants, this draw invited 6000 CEC i.e. Canadian Experience Class candidates for applying to the Permanent Residency in Canada. Also, this draw was 15 points lesser than the previous draw of 432 CRS points. Immigrants who are invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada, have to fulfill the eligibility criteria for the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) program. Those candidates who will receive an invitation to apply (ITA) are considered eligible candidates and should have a score of at least 417.
CEC Express Entry CRS draw
On April 16, Canada held a CEC Express Entry CRS Entry draw for new immigrants. There are new immigrants who are invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada. The invited candidates have to be eligible for the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Only those candidates who will receive an invitation to apply (ITA) eligible candidates should have a score of at least 417. As compared to the previous Canadian Experience Class (CEC) there are 15 points lesser.
Only those candidates with a minimum score of at least 417 will be invited if they submitted their Express Entry Profile before 1st March 2021. The Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada(IRCC) as per the tie-breaker rule will publish the cutoff as an administrative requirement, apart from knowing that there was an actual tie or not.
Priority is given to in-Canada candidates by IRCC
For the non-essential travels Canada’s border is still closed but as mentioned above the Canadian government still wants to welcome a huge number of new immigrants for permanent residence. In the current scenario, the Canadian government led by the liberal party has set a target of 40,100 new immigrants to welcome in Canada through the Express Entry program. Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada(IRCC) is holding some program-specific draws to meet the targets set by the Canadian government. The program-specific draw targets the candidates who are likely already in the Country.
The candidates who are eligible under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) should have at least full-time work experience of at least one year in their skilled occupation. So it is obvious that the candidates submit their Express Entry profile then they are likely to live already in Canada. In the previous report, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) said that there is about 90 percent of the candidates who are applied for their Express Entry profile are already living in Canada.
When the Canadian border was first closed in March 2020 then Canada amends between holding the provincial program system (PNP) draws and the rounds of invitation who only invites the candidates that are eligible for Canadian Experience Class (CEC). Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has applied this pattern until the end of the year when they started holding all the program draws repeatedly, which came out to not single out the candidates who are eligible for any program.
