400 CRS for CEC candidates

And Canada does it again. The second-ever lowest draw for the CEC specific Candidates. 6000 Express Entry candidates were invited at a CRS of 400 points.

As per the tie-break rule, candidates who had the minimum score of 400 were only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before April 24, 2021, at 15:24:49 UTC. IRCC publishes the cutoff time for the tie-break rule as an administrative requirement, regardless of whether there was an actual tie.

So far this year, IRCC has only held two types of program-specific Express Entry draws that target candidates who are likely already residing in the country. CEC candidates are especially prevalent in Canada, IRCC estimates about 90 per cent are applying domestically.

The other group of candidates that have been invited through Express Entry this year are those who have previously received a nomination through a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). In order to get a nomination, PNP candidates often need work experience, study experience, or some other connection to the province. As such, these candidates also have a high proportion of candidates already in the country.

Although the pandemic has slowed down invitation rounds for outland Express Entry candidates, Canada just saw a record first quarter for the number of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) it issued. The new Express Entry draw brought the number of ITAs issued in 2021 to 61,771. This year’s number is significantly higher than what it was at the same time last year, in part due to the historically large February 13 Express Entry draw.

In an effort to achieve its target of welcoming 401,000 new immigrants in 2021, IRCC has created six new programs aimed at essential workers and international student graduates. Starting May 6, Canada will open the door to 90,000 new immigrants plus an unlimited number of French-speaking essential workers and graduates.

IRCC issues ITAs to the highest-scoring candidates through Express Entry draws. After you send in your application, an IRCC immigration officer will review it. If they approve your application, the last step is to complete the landing process and officially become a Canadian permanent resident.
