Canada Held New Draw for Canadian Experience Class Candidates

Joseph Creech



Canadian Experience Class

Canada is trying to invite more immigrants into the country this year to make up for the pandemic-related adversities of 2020. Canada wants to welcome 401,000 new immigrants in 2021 as per the immigration levels plan.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held the most recent draw on July 22 for candidates in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). IRCC issued 4,500 invitations to candidates registered in the Express Entry pool. The invited candidates will now be able to submit their applications for permanent residence in Canada.

Details of the draw

To be invited during the July 22 draw, candidates were required to have a minimum score of 357. They were also required to fulfill the eligibility requirements of the CEC. The tie-break rule plays an important role in every federal Express Entry draw because it is an administrative requirement of the IRCC. The candidates with the minimum score received invitations only if they had registered their profiles prior to February 14, 2021, at 09:04:15 UTC. The selected candidates are not guaranteed permanent residence but they have a great shot at securing it.

IRCC specifically focused on the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) and Canadian Experience Class -specific draws during the pandemic since the candidates had a higher probability of already living in Canada. The travel restrictions would not stop them from taking advantage of their invitations.


With Canada beginning to lift the coronavirus measures, IRCC might restore the original pattern of holding draws soon. However, it is yet to be seen when that happens. Fully vaccinated people might be able to enter Canada from September.
