The Express Entry program-specific draw under the CEC was held on April 29, 2021. Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is for skilled workers who have Canadian work experience and want to become permanent residents. Candidates must have at least 1 year of skilled work experience in Canada, in the last 3 years before they apply.
A total number of 6,000 invitations were issued to Canadian Experience Class candidates on April 29, 2021. IRCC ranks candidates in the Express Entry pool using a point-based system known as the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) which is calculated based on human capital factors such as age, education, work experience, and language ability in English or French. A CRS score of only 400 was needed to be invited to apply provided candidates have uploaded their Express Entry profile before April 24, 2021, at 15:24:49 UTC.

This year only two types of program-specific Express Entry draws were held by IRCC, namely CEC and PNP. As per research conducted by IRCC, it was deduced that those candidates who have Canadian work and/or study experience can easily integrate quickly into the labour market. Around 90 per cent of candidates are applying domestically.
On the other hand, candidates who have been nominated by a Province often need work experience, study experience or some other connection to the province.
