Express Entry: 5,000 CEC candidates invited
Canada continues on its commitment to welcome 108,500 newcomers through Express Entry-managed programs.
Canada invited 5,000 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence on March 18. Invited candidates needed to be eligible for the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and have a score of at least 449 in order to receive an Invitation to Apply. Some of the basic eligibility requirements for the CEC include one year of full-time skilled work experience in Canada, and intermediate official language skills among other criteria.
“While travel restrictions are still in place, the federal government has opted to focus on Express Entry candidates who are already in Canada in order to meet its immigration targets for 2021.” said Attorney David Cohen, Senior Partner of Campbell Cohen. “IRCC has been doing this by holding PNP- and CEC-specific draws.”
