WHY IS THE CRS SCORE FOR EXPRESS ENTRY DECREASING?

Before kickstarting with the why’s and hows, let’s try to fathom what CRS score is and how important of a role it plays. The Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score is used to rank you among hundreds of thousands of people awaiting an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency in the Express Entry pool. 

No minimum CRS score is required to be included in the Express Entry pool. All you need is to be eligible for one of the 3 immigration programs that use Express Entry; Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker, and Federal Skilled Trades (FST). However, since Express Entry is a points-based system, a higher CRS score means a higher chance of immigrating to Canada.

It’s used to assess your:

  1. skills
  2. education
  3. language ability
  4. work experience
  5. other factors

Since the start of all-program draws on July 6th, the CRS score has been steadily declining, as we have observed with prior Express Entry draws. Since every program attracts applications, 7,500 applicants have received ITAs; this number is anticipated to rise.

Each draw has seen an increase in the number of candidates invited, although the CRS cut-off score has continuously decreased as the backlog of applications in the system is being processed. A 9-point drop from 525 to 516 in the previous draw was seen in the most recent draw. In the 230th draw, ITAs were awarded to an extra 2,750 applicants.

The following draws are anticipated to see a further decline in the CRS score. Canada will start accepting candidates based on merit starting in the first quarter of 2023.

The immigration minister will be able to invite candidates based on groupings rather than just CRS ratings under Bill C-19, which was unveiled earlier this year. Combinations of work experience in a sought-after occupation or set of occupations, linguistic ability, and educational background may be grouped together. The CRS cut-off is expected to be substantially lower compared to the general draws that we have been witnessing lately because candidates will be judged against those in their group rather than the whole Express Entry pool.

                New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program

                The New Brunswick Provincial Nominee Program (NBPNP) is for those looking forward to immigrate to New Brunswick, Canada. It's a special program designed to fit the unique needs of the province and helps individuals become permanent residents.

                What makes the NBPNP interesting is that it has different "streams" or ways for people with various skills and experiences to apply. The Express Entry Labour Market Stream is for skilled workers with jobs in demand in New Brunswick. The Skilled Workers with Employer Support Stream is for those who already have a job offer from a local employer.

                Family reunification is a key part of the program, and the Family Support Worker Stream lets New Brunswick residents sponsor close family members who have the skills needed for specific jobs in the province.

                Entrepreneurs and business enthusiasts have their own path through the Entrepreneurial Stream, designed for those wanting to start or buy a business in New Brunswick. This not only contributes to the local economy but also creates job opportunities.

                The program is a way for the province to attract individuals with valuable skills, making a positive impact on the local community. As people go through the NBPNP, they not only find a way to become permanent residents but also become a vital part of New Brunswick's growth and prosperity. This program inviting for individuals to contribute to the success and development of New Brunswick.
