Four Reasons Candidates Should Submit An Express Entry Profile Even If They Don’t Meet The Current Crs Cut-off

Candidates in the express entry pool have tended to need a CRS above 460 to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA). In recent months, it has even shot up to 470 or higher. The main reasons for such high scores are due to the fact that more candidates are receiving additional CRS points for meeting criteria such as having Canadian experience (as former international student and temporary foreign worker) and obtaining a provincial nominee certificate. Despite the soaring scores, there are some minute yet significant reasons why you should enter the Express Entry pool even you do not have a CRS above 460.

  • 1. CRS is unpredictable. By submitting an Express Entry application, you give yourselves a life line for receiving an ITA in the event that the federal government reduces the CRS cut-off
  • 2. Most of the times candidates are so consumed in high CRS score that they lose sight of the bigger picture. Candidates who fall short of the federal CRS cut-off may still obtain an ITA for permanent residence if they meet the selection criteria of a province or territory.
  • 3. Candidates can work on polishing their CRS scores after they submit their Express Entry application. They can improve their English or French language proficiency, obtain foreign work experience or work experience in Canada and seek to obtain a Canadian job offer or provincial nomination.
  • 4. Immigration candidates should look beyond Express Entry and consider other economic class immigration pathways. Express Entry only manages three of the country’s economic class pathways: FSWT, FST, and CEC. This means more than 80 economic class pathways are available to immigrate to Canada.

In 2020, Canada is looking to welcome 110,000 economic class immigrants through its more than 80 programs, plus an additional 86,000 through its three Express Entry programs.

This is all to say, candidates should actually feel more encouraged about applying for immigration to Canada.
