Express Entry: Almost 40% of international students qualify for PR through CEC
The 85,000-90,000 Express Entry applicants who received an Invitation to Apply last year included a large number of international students. Nearly 40% of foreign students out of all the Express Entry candidates qualified for permanent residence under the Canadian Experience Class category. However, not all international graduates can score enough points under Express Entry to receive an invitation. As a result, many of them need to look for provincial streams for permanent residence or qualified offers of arranged employment in order to boost their Express Entry score.
