Another round of invitations has been held, within a day of the previous draw, under the Express Entry system of Canada.
Launched in 2015, the Express Entry system is an online application management system managed by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada [IRCC] on behalf of the federal government of Canada.
On July 8, 2021, another 4,500 were invited by IRCC to submit their application for permanent residence in Canada. This time around, the focus was on Canada immigration hopefuls that had recent Canadian experience, thereby making them eligible for the Canadian Experience Class [CEC].
The previous Express Entry draw was held on July 7, 2021.

|What is the Canadian Experience Class [CEC] under the Express Entry system of Canada?|
|The Express Entry system is used by the Canadian government for managing applications for the 3 main economic immigration programs of Canada.
Immigration programs under the federal Express Entry system –
 the Federal Skilled Worker Program [FSWP]
 the Federal Skilled Trades Program [FSTP
 the Canadian Experience Class [CEC]
The Provincial Nominee Program [PNP] of Canada also has certain PNP streams linked with the IRCC Express Entry system.
The CEC is for skilled workers that have previous Canadian work experience and intend taking up permanent residence in Canada.
To be eligible for the CEC, an individual must have a minimum of 1 year’s skilled work experience in Canada, within the 3 years prior to applying to the Express Entry.
The Canadian work experience can be either – full-time at 1 job, an equal amount in part-time work, or full-time work at more than 1 jobs.
This work experience must have been gained by the individual by working in Canada on a temporary resident status, with the due authorization to work in the country.
Self-employment and work experience acquired while in Canada as a full-time student don’t count towards the requirements of the CEC.
Canada remains the most popular country for migrate overseas.
While there is a high demand for immigrants across Canada, the country especially welcomes IT workers.
