Canada to welcome 4,500 CEC candidates through Express Entry

With CRS scores as low as 369, Canada invites more than 4K candidates in the Canada Experience Class.

The sun shines on 4,500 CEC candidates as they were inducted into consideration for permanent residence on July 8, 2021.

This invitation round was intended for candidates who proved their eligibility for the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). The minimum CRS requirement was 369. As equated to the previous CEC Express Entry draws, the current CRS score has elated much by 12 points and the number of invitations issued was 6000. The lowest cutoff ever since May 20.

The tie-breaker rule entails the lowest-ranking candidates to have submitted their EOI profiles prior to June 10, 2021, at 04:16:37 am IST. Candidates who failed to apply within the stipulated time did not qualify for draws.

Our data scientists have discovered about twice as many invites being given to Express Entry candidates as compared to the same time last year. Mid-ways through 2021, Canada has already welcomed a tally of 93,842 Express Entry candidates. 

Thought-provoking, isn't it?

As said earlier, the federal government aims to admit 108,500 permanent residents through the Express Entry system by the end of 2021. The Canadian government also aims to conclude the processing time by six months, even though there has been a delay in time due to the shortage of manpower owing to the corona disruptions.

Since the beginning of 2021, IRCC has been allotting draws to lure candidates qualifying under the CEC guided pathway. The pattern for these CEC base draws follows after a provincial draw. This is why there's a massive fluctuation in CRS scores since the start of the year. The draws for PNP have a higher points-slab in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score cutoffs, as a provincial nominee candidate receives 600 points.

Now you may ask, why IRCC is bifurcating the streams?

The reason is simple -- Canada at present only focuses on candidates in their land. This change in policy is owed to the COVID scenarios at present. It is easier to admit immigrants during the pandemic who are already in the country. CEC candidates are probably in the Canada PNP. While PNPs have a higher probability of domestic applicants, and the ones who are already there have the leverage of convincing the provincial government that their skills could support the regional labor market goals of Saskatchewan.
