Canada Invites 3343 CEC Candidates In The Latest Draw
Canada held another Express Entry draw on July 23, the second invitation round held in two days.
Invitations were issued to a total of 3,343 Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates. A Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 445 was enough to ensure an Invitation to Apply (ITA). Today’s CRS cut-off score was 14 points higher than the previous CEC-specific draw on June 25, which had a CRS cut-off score of 431.
IRCC returned to program-specific draws with 557 PNP candidates receiving ITAs. 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 Class (FSTC) and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).
In the Express Entry system, candidates are ranked based on their CRS score that considers multiple factors including their age, work experience, education and proficiency in French or English. In some cases, the date and time at which the Express Entry profile was created is also a ranking factor.
This draw brings the total number of invitations issued in 2020 to 57,700.
Despite coronavirus, this number still exceeds the number of invitations issued at the same time last year and the year before.
