Canadian Experience Class Candidates Invited

In the 152nd Express Entry draw, the IRCC limited the draw to invite only candidates with active profiles in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) program. Candidates in the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) and Federal Skilled Trades (FST) programs were not considered in this draw.

Today’s draw saw 3,559 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) issued to CEC candidates with a CRS score of 437 points or higher, down three points since the last CEC-specific draw.

In order to qualify for the Canadian Experience Class program, candidates are required to have a minimum of one year of full-time and skilled work experience in Canada. Additionally, CEC candidates must show proficiency in English or French equivalent to the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 7 or higher.

We are pleased to see that in spite of the ongoing crisis, Canada is continuing to issue invitations. Due to COVID-19, Express Entry draws are currently being limited to Provincial Nominee Program and Canadian Experience Class candidates only.
