Canada continues its pattern of holding a CEC-specific draw after a PNP draw.

Canada held another Express Entry round of invitations on August 20.

The latest Express Entry draw was the second one in two days and the 161st overall held by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Invitations were issued to a total of 3,300 Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates. A Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of 454 was enough to ensure an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

Today’s CRS cut-off score was nine points higher than the previous CEC-specific draw on July 23, which had a CRS cut-off score of 445. The increase in points is due to more candidates being entered into the pool over the past month after Canada held an all-program draw on August 5.
