As this was another of the program-specific draws to be held by IRCC in the recent past, only CEC candidates were eligible for the latest federal Express Entry draw.

The CEC is one of the 3 economic immigration programs managed by IRCC through the federal Express Entry system.

The other Express Entry programs are the Federal Skilled Worker Program [FSWP] and the Federal Skilled Trades Program [FSTP].

For individuals possessing skilled work experience in Canada, the CEC targets temporary foreign workers and foreign graduates that have qualifying Canadian work experience.

The CEC has no education requirement.

Skilled work experience, as per Canada’s National Occupational Classification [NOC], is experience of working in either Skill Level 0 [zero], Skill type A, or Skill Type B.

With the tie-breaking rule of March 01, 2021 at 19:53:46 UTC applied to Express Entry Draw #183, CEC candidates that had a CRS of 417 and above received an ITA, provided they had submitted their profile before the date and time in the tie-break.
