The Express Entry system was introduced by the government of Canada from January 2015. The previous system served the applicants on a first-come first-serve basis, but in express entry system the government created a pool of the candidates based on a comprehensive ranking system (CRS).
This new immigration system has made it easier for candidates to obtain permanent residency of Canada. An aspiring candidate should understand that having enough points to enter the pool is something different than having enough points to be sent the invitation-to-apply (ITA).
How Points are distributed in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS)?
A candidate is given CRS points based on his / her level of education, work experience (both in Canada and abroad), abilities in English and French, whether the applicant has job offer from a Canadian employer, or whether the person has been issued a nomination by a province under the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).
Certain factors fetch more points than the other. In case the person has a job offer or a nomination from a province than 600 points are awarded straight away. 40 Express Entry draws have taken place till now, out of which 35 draws have been such where candidates were issued ITAs even if they did not had nomination or job offer.
Increasing CRS Score
There are ways through which you can improve your ranking under the Express Entry Pool. For example, you can work on your language proficiency and improve it from intermediate level to higher level. This will give you more points in the CRS and improve your ranking too. There are some factors which have the potential for improvement; however, there are others where no improvement can be made.
Work experience in Canada is given more value than experience had outside Canada. A candidate who has up to 2 years of experience in a field is given 25 points. For an additional year of experience, an additional 25 points are given to the candidate. The same rule applies to candidates who have obtained work experience from Canada.
