Canada Invites 3300 CEC Candidates In Express Entry Draw

Canada continues its pattern of holding a CEC-specific draw after a PNP draw. The latest Express Entry draw was the second one in two days and the 161st overall held by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) that issued to a total of 3,300 Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates with Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 454to ensure an Invitation to Apply (ITA). Today’s CRS cut-off score was nine points higher than the previous CEC-specific draw on July 23, which had a CRS cut-off score of 445. 

IRCC held a program-specific draw with 600 PNP candidates receiving ITAs in the last 160th draw.


Express Entry is a system that the federal government uses to manage applications for Canada’s three main economic-class programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

Some provinces also have provincial programs that are aligned with the Express Entry system.

This draw brings the total number of invitations issued in 2020 to 65,750.

Despite coronavirus, this number still exceeds the number of invitations issued at the same time last year and the year before.

Candidates who wish to submit their Express Entry profile may still do so despite any coronavirus-related restrictions in place.
