The program-specific CEC draw held on 28th May 2020, the IRCC issued 3,515 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence.

The minimum CRS score had dropped again to 440 points as Canada conducted its Express Entry draw targeting Canadian Experience Class candidates exclusively.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Canada, minimum scores have now fallen from 467 points to 440 points in the six Canadian Experience Class (CEC) draws. With today’s draw, a total of ITAs issued in 2020 is 42,100.

In this 150th Express Entry draw, the IRCC invited candidates with active profiles in the CEC program with a minimum one year of full-time, skilled work experience in Canada and minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 7 or higher.

As a matter of fact, in spite of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, Canada is continuing to invite candidates.
