The Key Highlights of the Draw - April 1

  • ITA- 5000
  • CRS score - 432

The tie break rule for the applicant with the same CRS score of 432 was set before February 16, 2021, at 09:51:22 UTC, as per the tie-break rule. It is the third lowest CRS core requirement of Express entry. The previous two low scores were on February 13, 2021 draw, and on June 25, 2020.

Why Is IRCC giving importance to in-Canada Express Entry candidates?

The Coronavirus pandemic has brought about a lot of restrictions in travel, and Canada international travel is still very restricted. However, it also has a high immigration level target set for the year 2021, where 401,000 new immigrants are expected. Thus, IRCC plans to meet the ambitious target by converting temporary residents into permanent ones.

The selected CEC applicants are expected to have at least one year of full-time work experience in a skilled occupation.

With this latest draw, the ITAs issued in 2021 have reached 49,124 already, nearly half of its target of new Express Entry candidates to admit in 2021.
