On April 1, 2021, the Department of Immigration (IRCC) held a new Express Entry draw for candidates in the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) Program. 

In round #181, Canada issued 5,000 Invitations to Apply for permanent residence and the lowest score dropped to 432 points, seventeen points fewer compared to round #179. 

The tie-breaking rule for this round was February 16, 2021 at 09:51:22 UTC. In total, IRCC already issued 49,124 invitations to apply in eleven draws of Express Entry. 

However, and due to restrictions on Canada's border entry points for non-essential international travel, IRCC has been focusing on programs and applicants that are inside Canada, and the Express Entry draws have been focusing on applicant in the CEC and PNP. 

IRCC issued bi-weekly draws inviting candidates that are in the Express Entry pool and that have applied through the Canadian Experience Program or Provincial Nominee Program PNP and the Federal Skilled Workers program.  Some programs such as the Federal Skilled Workers program did have any draws in the last three months, The last all-programs draw occurred on December 23, 2020. Nevertheless, the Canadian government is still in need to welcome high numbers of new immigrants and permanent residents in order to meet their target for year 2021.
