Canada, 24th November: Canada Releases Instructions Who Can Claim Additional CRS Points.
Yes. Canada has made this announcement in a latest move.
Canada Releases Instructions Who Can Claim Additional CRS Points-– Canada Releases Instructions Who Can Claim Additional CRS Points. This has been announced by Canada immigration department IRCC(Immigration, Citizenship and Refugees Canada). This was announced on 19th November this year.
“Canada Releases Instructions Who Can Claim Additional CRS Points .”
Several changes to CRS(Comprehensive Ranking System) and Express Entry system have been announced. These include introduction of points for Canada post-secondary educational credentials, changes to allocation of points for qualifying job offers and extension of application submission period after an ITA(Invitation to Apply) is received.
Since the changes announced on 19th November, 2016, several candidates in Express Entry pool shall be allowed to update their score.
Instructions for candidates affected by recent Canada immigration changes—Well, IRCC has given a series of instructions for candidates affected by recent Canada immigration changes. These are mentioned below—
- Candidates must log into their online account. They must update their Express Entry profile by answering new questions added to the system by the IRCC.
- The CRS score of the candidate may get updates after the profile is updated.
Invitation rounds shall be starting again in the next couple of weeks, stated IRCC. This shall give sufficient time to those affected by the latest changes for updating their Express Entry profile. All CRS scores shall get updates before the beginning of the next invitation round.
Candidates who are not affected by the changes to Express Entry system need not do anything, clarified IRCC.
Significance of updating your profile—Well, not updating one’s profile leaves the candidate at risk of missing on an ITA in the next draw. Nearly 50 percent of all individuals invited to apply till now possess a qualifying job offer.
As of now, job offers are getting fewer points. So, candidates in the Express Entry pool without any job offer can find themselves in a better position for getting an ITA.
In addition, a provincial nomination is the most valuable factor in Canada Express Entry system. 600 points are offered for a nomination certificate from a PNP(Provincial Nominee Program).
