Canadian Experience Class candidates feel vulnerable after Ottawa stopped CEC-specific draws

In-Canada Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates fear having to leave jobs or even Canada since the Canadian Government stopped inviting applicants under the CEC-specific draws.

Due to the immigration backlogs, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) does not issue invitations under the CEC program.

Without an invitation to apply (ITA), candidates cannot apply for permanent residence as Express Entry applicants, which leaves them vulnerable since their work permits expire, and they lose the right to work in Canada or have to find another work permit or permanent residency pathway.
