The Importance of Claiming all your CRS Points for Canada Express Entry

For candidates who have created a profile for the Canadian Federal Express Entry, it is important to have a high enough CRS score in order to increase your chances of getting an Invitation to Apply (ITA).

For those with low CRS scores, there exists options to boost their points.

There exist isolated factors and combinations of factors that have more weighting than others when it comes to boosting CRS scores.

Applicants with an accompanying spouse, common-law or conjugal partner will see a slight difference in how factors are weighted.

There is a total of 1,200 points available, of which 600 may be awarded for a job offer or provincial nomination.

Of the remaining 600 points, up to 500 are available for human capital factors in their own right.  Moreover, 100 points are available for skills transferability combinations of those human capital factors.

Your first opportunity to boost your Express Entry CRS score is to ask if you claimed all your eligible points.

Many candidates do not claim all of their points because they are not aware that they are eligible for them.  Moreover, many do not know how to maximize their eligible factors.

Two of such factors include:
√ Having a Sibling in Canada: This could be worth 15 points
√ Having Caadian Education: This could be worth 50 points

This is why it is advisable to seek the assistance of an immigration expert for your application if you can afford it.

Although most candidates do successfully complete the process on their own.
