Are you dreaming of making Canada your new home? The Express Entry system is your golden ticket! But high CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score or Express Entry points is required to board.

What Is Express Entry?

Express Entry is Canada’s flagship immigration system, designed to attract skilled workers from around the world. It’s like a high-speed train to your Canadian dream. But here’s the catch: the competition is fierce for points. So, how does one get through this crowded station?

The CRS Score: Your Boarding Pass

Top Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score serves as the boarding pass to the Express Entry train. The higher the score, the better the chances of getting an Invitation to Apply (ITA). But fear not! Let’s explore some strategies to boost that score and ensure a smooth journey.

1. Ensure you have the Best Route

Like having a Travel Agent organize your best route, having an expert guide in Express Entry can ensure to arrive at your destination. Before embarking on this once in a lifetime trip, consider hiring an immigration lawyer for a meticulous review of your profile. People often miss important factors that lead to point deductions. Work experience not included, education not fully declared. Minor mistakes in the Express Entry profile can result in loss of points. An expert eye can identify gaps, suggest improvements, and ensure your application has the maximum points.

2. Gain Work Experience

Express Entry favors candidates with relevant High-Skilled work experience. Whether you’re a nurse, engineer, or IT professional, highlight your expertise abroad and in Canada. Imagine your resume as a passport stamped with valuable work history. The more work experience you have, especially Canadian work experience, the higher your CRS score.

3. Improve Language Proficiency:

Language skills are one of the most important factors in your CRS score. High scores in English or French proficiency tests (such as IELTS or CELPIP) are key to achieving high scores. High scores opens doors to better opportunities. If you have areas where you can improve, such as writing or reading, studying and taking the test again is crucial to improve. If you have proficiency in both English and French and you require additional points, completing both tests would provide more points.

4. Education: Degrees of Excellence

Degrees and diplomas are golden coins for the Express Entry system. Showcase your educational achievements. Whether it’s a bachelor’s, master’s, or PhD, the higher the credential the more it adds points to your CRS score. Think of it as upgrading your education as one would upgrade your travel class!

5. Provincial Nomination

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) are like exclusive VIP lounges. If a province nominates you, you get extra CRS points. Research PNPs and find the one that aligns with your skills, whether Master’s programs or Employment based categories. It’s like skipping the regular security line and heading straight to the boarding gate.

6. Spousal Support

If your spouse or partner is also applying, you can combine forces! Their qualifications can boost your CRS score. A partner’s Work experince, english proficiency, and education can all be taken into account for points. It’s like sharing a cabin on the Express Entry train. The more, the merrier!

7. Immigration Lawyers

Now, let’s talk business. As an immigration lawyer, they are your personal tour guide. They’ll navigate the Express Entry maze, decode the CRS system, and ensure your application is impeccable. With their expertise, you won’t miss the train—it’s a guaranteed boarding pass!

Express Entry

Express Entry is the electronic management system for applying for permanent residency. It is not an immigration category but a system to facilitate the selection and processing of Canada’s economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, the Canadian Experience Class, and some Provincial Nomination Programs. This system evaluates candidates based on factors such as age, education, work experience, and language proficiency, aligning with Canada’s economic needs.

​Applicants must first make an “expression of interest” by creating a profile and, if eligible for at least one program, they will enter the Express Entry pool. Candidates from this pool will receive an ‘Invitation to Apply’ once they pass the points threshold under a draw. The points threshold is determined according to the latest draw that is held approximately every two weeks.
