Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held a surprise draw for applicants under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) category on 20th May 2021. It was also a pleasing surprise because the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score came down to 397 only and 1,842 applicants were issued invitations to apply (ITA). This is the second-lowest score requirement of 2021 under this category.
The candidates who received the last invitation submitted their Express Entry profile before April 24, 2021 at 12:09:24 UTC as per the tie break rule (an administrative requirement by IRCC to publish the cut-off regardless of whether there was an actual tie).
Canada is committed to achieving their immigration target of welcoming 401,000 newcomers in 2021. Below is a graphical representation of the last 10 Express Entry draws held in 2021.
