All eligible Express Entry candidates are given a score under the CRS that is based on factors such as age, education, skilled work experience and proficiency in English or French. They are then entered into the Express Entry pool.
Unlike all-program invitation rounds, which draw from the entire Express Entry pool and tend to result in higher cut-off scores, niche draws for a specific cohort like Canadian Experience Class candidates can produce lower cut-off scores given they target a smaller pool of candidates.
