The IRCC Invited 6,000 CEC Candidates in a new Express Entry Draw

In a latest program-specific Express Entry draw held on 16th April, the IRCC invited a record number of CEC candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence. A total of 6,000 ITAs have been issued this time to eligible CEC (Canadian Experience Class) candidates in the pool, making it a second-largest Express Entry draw ever.


Another key highlight of this invitation round was a cut off score requirement of only 417 points, which is 15 points less than the previous EE draw.
