There was a small difference in the Expression of Interest (EOI) score requirement for each category of applicants. Candidates invited to apply for the Express Entry subcategory needed a score of at least 71. Occupations in Demand candidates had a slightly smaller cutoff score at 70.
In this draw, there were different eligible occupations for each category. There were 43 eligible occupations in the draw for Express Entry candidates, and 61 for Occupations in Demand candidates. The entire list of eligible occupations can be found on the government website.
Both groups also needed Educational Credential Assessments to demonstrate their foreign education was comparable to the Canadian standard.
