On August 5, there were 3,000 Express Entry candidates applying for permanent residence in the recent Draw. The applicants required a Score as low as 404 points. It was a program-specific draw in which the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) applicants were selected.

The Key Aspects of the Draw:

In the last CEC specific draw, the minimum score requirement was 357, and it was the second-lowest score requirement of the year for CEC specific candidates.

Why is IRCC conducting Canadian Experience Class specific draws?

Since the start of 2021, IRCC has been conducting only Canadian Experience Class - and Provincial Nominee Program - specific Express Entry draws. These Candidates are those who are largely in Canada or they have some ties in the country. A large number of CEC applicants are those who are already in Canada; this is an effort to convert temporary workers into permanent residents. The IRCC has taken this step to avoid the perils of the CoronaVirus pandemic. With the travel restrictions in place, there is less danger of cases being on the rise with the advent of the pandemic.

The Canada Immigration Level Plan target is set at 401,000 newcomers who can come to Canada. It means that for each month, the target will be set at 43000 newcomers per month.
