On April 16, 2020, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held a new round in the Express Entry. In draw #144, Canada sent Invitations to Apply (ITA) to 3,782 candidates in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) program. This was the sixth program-specific draw aimed at would-be-immigrants already residing within Canada. Since IRCC is not inviting Federal Skilled Worker candidates who have a high CRS score, the cut-off score of this draw dropped by eleven points compared to previous CEC round and reached 455 points. This score was the lowest score since round #116 which occurred on May 1, 2019 (excluding the draws for FST candidates). The tie-breaking rule for this round was January 20, 2020 at 17:37:33 UTC. Canada already invited 30,400 candidates in eleven rounds of Express Entry in 2020.
