Candidates needed to score 357 in the last CEC draw. This requirement was tied for the lowest ever for this type of draw. The February 13 draw was the lowest, with every CEC-eligible applicant invited. 75 was the lowest score in this pool.

Candidates with the minimum score were not included if they submitted their profiles prior to August 3, 2021 at 05.39:26 UTC. This is according to the tie-break rule. This information is published by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada as an administrative requirement. It does not necessarily indicate that there was a tie.

What’s the point of a CEC-only draw, you ask?

Since 2021, IRCC only holds Express Entry draws for CEC- and Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP-specific Express Entry draws). These candidates are mostly from Canada or have at least some Canadian ties.

CEC candidates make up the majority of those who are already here. This is because Canadian work experience is one of the key eligibility criteria for this program. CEC candidates who are part of the Express Entry pool make up approximately 90% of Canadians.

Canada has prioritized domestic candidates because they are less likely face coronavirus-related obstacles. Confirmation of Permanent Residence holders (COPR) could not enter Canada until June 21.

The federal immigration targets have been set at an unprecedented goal of 401,000 new Canadians by 2021. In the first half, IRCC welcomed 143,000 permanent residents from all programs. Canada must attract approximately 43,000 newcomers each month to reach its goal of 401,000 newcomers by 2021.

Year-over-year, Express Entry Invitations

The number of invitations to apply (ITAs), has nearly doubled compared with last year. The IRCC is doubling its efforts to accept 108,500 newcomers via the Express Entry system by 2021. Canada has so far invited 102,316 Express Entry applicants in 2021.

Due to the nature CEC- or PNP-only draws, minimum scores requirements have fluctuated. CEC draws have lower cutoffs due to the concentration of applicants in one draw. For example, they are not competing against other applicants in the Federal Skilled Worker Program. As more CEC candidates reach the top, the minimum score threshold drops. PNP candidates get 600 points automatically if they are nominated by their provincial governments.

What is Express Entry?

Express Entry, a points-based system, manages immigration applications for three Federal High Skilled Programs, including the Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Program and Federal Skilled Trades Program. Express Entry is also used by some PNPs to invite candidates for provincial nominations.

You will be awarded a score using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) if you are eligible to apply for Express Entry-managed programs. CRS points are based on skills and education.

The CRS has a maximum of 1,200 points. Most have less than 500 points. PNP candidates, however, have 600 CRS points.

During regular rounds of invitation, IRCC invites high-scoring candidates to apply for permanent residence. Invitationes are eligible to apply for Canadian immigration.

Who was invited?

Here’s an example of someone who might have been invited to the new draw.

Guan, 38, has a bachelor’s degree and has worked as a consultant in management outside of Canada for six year. Guan is proficient in English and has lived in Canada for one year in 2019. Guan’s CRS score 445 and her eligibility under CEC would have allowed for her to be eligible for an ITA in Express Entry.
