Canada invites 4,147 Express Entry candidates to apply for PR.
Canada held another Express Entry round of invitations with a low score requirement on May 13.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited candidates who had scores of at least 401, just one point more than the previous comparable draw. Candidates also must have been eligible for the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), meaning they had at least one year of skilled work experience in Canada, and intermediate language proficiency in English or French.
IRCC published the cutoff time for the tie-break rule, as per administrative requirements. It does not necessarily mean there was an actual tie. Candidates who had the minimum score of 401 were only invited if they submitted their Express Entry profile before April 29, 2021 at 11:48:14 UTC.
“All CEC candidates have previous experience in the Canadian labour market, this is a major component of the eligibility criteria,” said David Cohen, Senior Attorney of Campbell Cohen. “Having Canadian experience correlates with higher instances of employment, and higher earnings.”
