The program-specific Express Entry draw for Canadian Experience Class on May 28, 2020, saw CRS cut-off score fall down to 440 points. 3,515 Invitations to Apply for Permanent Residence were issued.

The May 28 draw continues the trend of CRS cut-off score decrease for CEC draws. This can be explained by as many as six regular CEC-specific Express Entry draws held since March 4, 2020.

To be able to be selected under CEC, you must meet Canadian Experience Class requirements.

The most important requirements include one year of skilled work experience (self-employed experience and work while on study permit [including co-op] do not count) and language ability of CLB 7 for NOC 0 or A jobs and CLB of 5 for NOC B jobs.

Interestingly, education is not a requirement for CEC, but good credentials will ramp up your CRS score.

About Express Entry

Express Entry is an incredibly fast and efficient system of managing applications for Canadian permanent residence put in place by the Canadian Government in 2015. It is used to manage three programs: Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Canadian Experience Class, as well as some Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

Under the terms of Express Entry, applicants provide information about their skills, education, language ability, work experience and some details online through a very user-friendly interface.

Once you complete your Express Entry profile, the system automatically assesses your rank in the Express Entry pool, using a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System, and tells you how many points you have.

The points are awarded for skills, education, language ability, work experience and other factors. Additional points can be awarded for Canadian degrees, diplomas and certificates, a valid job offer and a nomination from a province or a territory. You immediately see how many points you have.
