The Express Entry system is developed by the Canadian government to help a large number of people around the world move to Canada. And, to sustain the Canadian economy which is largely dependent on new immigrants. Foreign nationals are invited from all the programs that come under the express entry including the express entry aligned stream of the nominee program. 

What is Canada Express Entry draw?

The Express Entry draw is a pathway to becoming a permanent resident in Canada. It is a point-based system in which candidates who have higher points and are required for Canada’s labour market are selected to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for the permanent residency.

How often does Canada Express Entry take place? It is one of the common questions asked by a Canadian immigrant. The Express Entry draw is usually held on a bi-weekly schedule. If there is a gap between two successive draws, the draw comes out to be larger with issuing more number of invitations. And each express entry draw has a tie-break date and time. This means that candidates must have submitted their profiles before the tie-break date and time in order to have received an Invitation to Apply. 


What is an Invitation to Apply?

To enter the immigration process through the Express Entry system, a foreign worker must create and submit his/her profile in the express entry pool. The candidates who have higher points as per the Comprehensive Ranking System are invited by the IRCC to apply for the Canadian permanent residence. Consequently, this invitation makes a candidate eligible to apply for permanent resident status.

Understanding the Comprehensive Ranking System Score

To apply for the express entry immigration system and get resident status, a candidate has to submit his/her profile in the Express Entry pool. This profile acts as an Expression of Interest shown by the candidate for applying for permanent residence in Canada.

Once a profile is submitted, the candidate is awarded a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, which is eventually the deciding factor for securing an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence. 

CRS score is dependent on the following factors:

  • Age;
  • Education;
  • Post-secondary degree;
  • Language proficiency;
  • Foreign work experience;
  • Canadian work experience;
  • Canadian certificate of education

How can you increase your express entry score?

The major factors that are considered in the Express Entry system are age, language skills, education, and work experience. 

You can have a good CRS score by following these tips:

  • Try to fetch the maximum number of points with the help of human capital factors, like age, education qualification and language test results.
  • Good proficiency in French can help you earn additional points
  • A Canadian citizen or a permanent resident as your sibling can make you get extra points
  • If applicable, human capital factors of your spouse can also help you increase your points
  • A provincial nomination from provinces of Canada makes you earn 600 additional points

Increase your CRS score for the next Express Entry Draw!

If a candidate has got a low CRS score in the latest draw, he/she does have a chance to improve his/her score in order to be invited to apply for residency application in the subsequent express entry draw. 

An applicant can increase his/her score by re-appearing for the language test, for example, IELTS. In addition to this, the spouse of a candidate can also be beneficial to get additional points to the total CRS score.

The candidate should apply to a Provincial Nominee Program of the province he/she would like for immigration. This will fetch him/her an additional 600 points which will effectively guarantee an ITA in the next express entry draw.

If an applicant has a valid job offer from a Canadian employer, he/she can earn additional points depending on the chosen NOC.

The Immigration Minister of Canada has recently expressed his wish to welcome more than one million residents in the next three years. The Minister has stated that immigration will help Canada to boost its economy, have labour market growth, and support new businesses.
