Being the principal source for skilled foreign labor, Canada’s Express Entry System manages the pool of candidates for the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Canadian Experience Class, and the Federal Skilled Trades Class, the three major Canada’s Economic Class immigration programs.
The Canadian government has issued 3,600 invitations to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence in the new held draw on November 27, 2019, to express entry candidates.
The required CRS score in this draw was 471. However, this is a reduction of one point when compared with the previous one, held on November 13, which had a cut-off score of 472.
The draw offered 3,600 ITA to those with a cut-off score of 471. The total number of invitations to apply (ITAs) is 78.900 for Canada’s Express Entry system this year.
Improving Your CRS Score
If you are one wishing to immigrate to Canada through the Express Entry System, your chances of being selected are almost entirely based on how well you score in the CRS.
The points are awarded points under CRS based on several factors such as education, English proficiency and/or French language, age and work experience.
However, there are several other factors, which significantly increase your score include Canadian degrees, certificates, diplomas, a valid job offer, and a nomination from a Canadian territory or province.
Moreover, the candidates ranked the highest based on their scores are sent invitations To Apply (ITAs) for Canadian Permanent Residence.
The CRS is a score out of 1,200 used to benchmark federal economic applicants against one another. It was a part of the Express Entry mechanism, which was established in January 2015 to process residency applications.
