  • July 9, 2021

IRCC held another Express Entry for Canadian Experience Class on July 8 issuing 4,500 invitations to Apply (ITA) to the candidates with the cut-off Comprehensive Ranking (CRS) score 369 points.

The selected candidates are required to have at least one year of work experience in a skilled occupation in Canada to be eligible for the draw along with intermediate language proficiency skill in English or French.

The tie breaking rule was implemented in this draw for the profiles that were submitted before June 10, 2021 at 22:46:37 UTC. The candidates who have minimum score of 369 points would have received the invitation provided they have submitted their profile before the given time. This was a major Express Entry draw held with quite low CRS requirement.

This is another huge draw from IRCC for Canadian Experience Class where they are inviting the candidates who are already working in Canada and have experience of working there. IRCC, in order to fulfil their targets to invite the immigrants, holds the draw for the candidates who are already within borders and offers them opportunity to secure PR.

In the Express Entry system, candidates are ranked based on their CRS score that considers multiple factors including their age, work experience, education and proficiency in French or English. In some cases, the date and time at which the Express Entry profile was created is also a ranking factor.

After you submit, an IRCC immigration officer will make a decision on your application. If you are approved, the last step is to complete the landing process and officially become a Canadian permanent resident.

Not all candidates who receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) will get permanent residency status. Some may not apply, others may be rejected.
