The Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced the biggest-ever Express Entry draw ever to invite a record-breaking number of candidates, i.e. 27, 332 ITAs to apply for Canadian PR Visa.

This Express Entry draw was also a Program-Specific draw where candidates were exclusively invited under Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and required to have prior Canadian work experience to qualify for an ITA.

Historic Express Entry draw- February 13, 2021

This Express Entry Draw was unique as the Canadian government had never invited such high number of candidates in a single draw that too with a CRS score requirement of as low as 75 points. It is the lowest CRS requirement ever announced by the IRCC for an Express Entry invitation round.
