Canadian Experience Class draw

Canada invited 2,000 Canadian Experience Class candidates | CRS: 462

Today, Canada held the first Canadian Experience Class draw of September. A total of 2,000 Express Entry candidates were invited to apply for permanent residence.

The Comprehensive Ranking Score requirement (CRS) for this draw was 462. The cutoff score was higher than the previous CEC Express Entry Draw: 403.  It is important to note that, in this round, the tie-break rule applied to candidates who submitted their profiles before September 11, 2021, at 10:55:43 UTC.

The tie-break rule explains that if more than one candidate has the lowest score, the cut-off is based on the date and time they submitted their EE profiles.

Usually, IRCC holds a CEC draw (Thursdays) after a PNP draw (Wednesdays). However, the CEC draw expected on September 2 did not come.
