Canada held another Express Entry draw today, on June 24, 2021.
A total of 6,000 candidates were invited to apply for permanent residence through the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). The Comprehensive Ranking System score requirement (CRS) was 357. This CRS cut-off is the second-lowest ever for a CEC-only draw. The lowest was 75 during the historic February 13, 2021 draw that saw 27,332 CEC candidates invited to apply for permanent residence.
The CRS requirement continues to fall in CEC-only draws as Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) looks for even more in-Canada candidates to invite to support its goal of welcoming 401,000 new immigrants this year.
CEC candidates have a minimum of one year of Canadian work experience in a skilled occupation, and at least an intermediate level of English or French.
IRCC published a cut-off time for the tie-break rule. This is an administrative requirement, it does not mean there was necessarily an actual tie. In the new draw, candidates who had the minimum score were only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before February 17, 2021 at 10:15:50 UTC.
