3,311 ITAs Issued to CEC Express Entry Candidates with CRS Score of 452

The federal government of Canada has again invited 3,311 eligible candidates to apply for Canadian PR under the Canadian Experience Class.

In this latest program-specific draw held by the IRCC on 1st May 2020, ITAs have been issued to candidates who have applied under Express Entry's CEC program with a comparatively lower minimum score requirement of 452 CRS points. In fact, this draw's CRS requirement has been marked as the lowest cutoff marks announced by Express Entry so far in 2020.

With this draw, the total number of ITAs issued so far in 2020 through Express Entry programs have reached up to 34,300.

IRCC's gradual shift towards program-specific draws

Since the onset of travel restrictions due to the Covid-19 scare, the IRCC has held eight program-specific Express Entry draws to invite maximum applicants under PNP and Canadian Experience Class.

The applicants under both categories are most likely to be living in Canada during this period of time in comparison to other Express entry programs, impacted by the current travel restrictions. Thus, they will be less impacted by temporary travel restrictions.

Express Entry program

It is Canada’s key immigration program designed to select and invite skilled foreign workers under three Federal High Skilled economic class immigration programs:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Class
  • Federal Skilled Trades Class
  • Canadian Experience Class

In Express Entry draw, the IRCC issues invitations to apply under all its key economic immigration programs or specific programs to invite eligible candidates from the pool on the basis of their CRS score and ranking.

The highest-ranking candidates get an ITA to apply for Canada PR and must submit their final application along with supporting documents within 60 days time to the IRCC along with the required fee.
