The government of Canada’s Express Entry immigration system, which was implemented in 2015, is competitive. In general, only those applicants who have the highest Comprehensive Ranking System scores based on their profile in the Express Entry pool receive invitations to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residency.
If you’ve had an active Express Entry profile for a while and are still waiting for an invitation in each next draw, you might be better off focusing on strategies to raise your CRS score rather than waiting for the points to decrease.
Fortunately, the following thorough information will assist you in improving your score and qualifying for one of the subsequent Express Entry drawings.

Obtain a Job Offer in Canada
Note that in order to receive points for a job offer made through Express Entry, the job offer must fulfil a set of requirements.
While the value of a qualifying job offer in terms of your CRS score isn’t as high as it used to be — in most circumstances, it’s down to 50 CRS points from a prior value of 600 points — getting a job offer is still crucial.
Obtaining such an offer may appear tough, especially if you are not presently residing in Canada, but there are actions you can do to improve your chances of success.
Improve your Language Proficiency
Learning a second official language and taking certified language exams is a great method to maximise your language points, and it’s one of those areas where small improvements may add up to big results.
One of the nicest aspects of the language tests required for immigration is that you may retake them if you want to improve your score.
If you don’t get a good score on your first attempt, you can enrol in some language programmes and retest to enhance your CRS score.
Even simple language abilities can help you earn bonus points and improve your chances of being chosen!
If language is not your strong suit, consider hiring an English or French tutor to guide you and assist you in your preparation.
Boost your Educational Credentials
Gather all of your educational accomplishments and start thinking about new ones! You can get points by completing another educational program.
It’s all too easy to dismiss previous work experience or courses you’ve done. It’s critical to remember and mention all of your schooling since even the smallest details may make a big difference. Even a certificate that has nothing to do with your present line of employment counts, and it’s one of the simplest methods to raise your CRS score.
Concentrate on Your Family
Do you have a sibling in Canada? Get 15 additional points right off the bat!
Did you know that having a permanent resident or citizen blood family, adopted sibling, spouse, or common-law partner in Canada can earn you up to 15 bonus points?
They must produce a copy of their PR card or passport as proof of citizenship or permanent residency in order to collect the points. They’ll have to show proof of their relationship with the applicant as well.
Are you planning to immigrate with your partner? You may earn up to 40 points!
The CRS points granted to a couple (spouse or common-law) are higher when they apply together. For example, consider the spouse/partner:
Language proficiency is valued 20 points, while education and employment experience in Canada are each worth 10 points.
