The 176th draw for Express Entry permanent residence candidates happened on February 13, 2021, and was a Canadian Experience Class (CEC) draw.
It has resulted in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points requirement for receiving an invitation to apply (ITA) to decrease as compared to the previous CEC draw on January 21, 2021.
As with the previous draws, a tie-break rule was used. As a bunch of candidates have the same 75 CRS score, only those who have created their profile before September 12, 2020 at 15:31:40 UTC will get an ITA.
