What is Express Entry?

The Express Entry system is used to manage applications for Canada’s Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, and Canadian Experience Class.

Each program comes with its specific eligibility criteria, but all applicants undergo assessment and ranking based on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). This system factors in variables like language proficiency, age, employment history, occupation, and education. Individuals with higher CRS scores are better at receiving invitations to apply for permanent residency in Canada.

Please note: If you obtain a provincial nomination through the Provincial Nominee Program, you gain a significant advantage in Express Entry draws as you automatically receive an additional 600 CRS points.

Category-Based Express Entry

Starting May 31, the IRCC introduced category-based selection draws, targeting specific sectors such as healthcare, STEM professions, trades, transportation, and agriculture. These draws prioritize candidates with relevant work experience or good French language skills.

The primary goal of these category-based selection draws is to address pressing job vacancies in high-demand sectors of Canada’s labour market and bolster the economy. Nonetheless, Express Entry candidates still need a competitive CRS score to be viable contenders in these draws.

With the recent announcement of Express Entry draw resumptions, the unfolding of the selection process in the weeks ahead remains to be observed.

How to Increase Your CRS Score and Receive an Invitation

If you’re looking to improve your CRS score and receive an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residency, there are several alternative approaches you can consider:

1. Targeted Express Entry

Consider the Targeted Express Entry pathway, which offers ITAs at lower CRS scores. Seek guidance from immigration experts to determine your eligibility and receive the necessary support.

Explore provincial nominee programs (PNPs) to substantially increase your CRS score. Research and select a program that aligns with your skills and qualifications.

3. LMIA-Based Job
