CRS requirement drops 17 points under new CEC draw
Updated: May 11
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) invited candidates with scores of at least 400, and whom may be eligible for permanent residence through the Canadian Experience Class. This is the second lowest score ever for a CEC-specific draw.
“The CEC was created in 2008 to help more temporary workers and international student graduates to transition to permanent residency,” said David Cohen, Senior Attorney of Campbell Cohen. “Candidates need to have one year of Canadian work experience to be eligible for the CEC. This experience is highly valuable in Canada’s job market. As such, we see many CEC candidates employed within their first year of landing.”
