    The second round of Express Entry draws in just two days invited 4,750 CEC candidates

    Canada Government has announced the second draw in the gap of just two days. The IRCC. On January 7 selected 4,750 Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates in the latest draw, and the applicants who achieved the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 461 were shortlisted in this draw. It means that all those appellant who had CRS score of 461 or above they made it through the cut and were provided with an Invitation to Apply (ITA). While the draw was announced on January 7, the details were released on January 8.

    Prior to this, the last draw, which was also the first draw of the year 2021, was conducted on January 6, in which 250 applicants were selected in the PNP specific draw, and the least required Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score requirement was 813. The Highs core could be met by those applicants who have the Provincial Nomination with them. It entitles the appellants to an additional 600 points in the federal express entry system.

    The Important Aspects of the draw –

    • CRS score for selection– 461
    • Applicants selected - 4750


    It cannot be predicted as of now. Still, with these two latest Express entry draw, it appears that IRCC is going back to the model of program-specific draws just like it was earlier when the coronavirus pandemic started. In the early months between March and August, there were program-specific draws only. The IRCC slowly changed this pattern towards the end of the year 20202, and the high invitations were sent with low CRS scores to meet the immigration targets set for the year.

    The skilled workers can relocate through the Federal Express Entry program, and for selected, there are three main economic class subcategories- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). The CRS score asked by the IRCC sets the benchmark, and the applicants who are high scoring are selected for immigration through these programs. The points are calculated based on age, work experience, education, and proficiency in French or English.

    In the latest Express Entry draw, the tie-break rule was applied from September 12, 2020, at 20:46:32 UTC. The tie break rule is designed to evaluate the applicants who have the same CRS score. Based on the tie break date and time, the high scoring applicants will be selected from the pool.

    Canada Immigration level plan, 2021 - 2023 has set the target of 110,000 Express Entry applicants. Despite the Coronavirus pandemic, the immigrations have not been much affected, and the IRCC continues to select candidates through different draws.
