Many candidates who have put up their profiles for immigration to Canada through Express Entry have Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores below 400.
The recent statistics provided by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada of April 2019, discloses that out of 82,000 candidates, over 51,000 have scored between 301 and 400 CRS points. This becomes a difficult feat for these candidates to immigrate to Canada.
The Canada Express Entry which has entered into its fourth year has invited economic immigration candidates. The seven out of eight draws have recorded minimum Comprehensive Ranking System scores to be found between 440 and 450 with ITA numbers at a peak of 3,500.
Approximately 26,500 profiles can improve their chances of getting Canadian immigration if they raise their CRS scores by just a few more points. However, that may not be the case for those candidates who have score less than 400 CRS score. Adding a few more points may not help them much. So, how can these below-400 candidates receive the much craved invitation to apply for immigration?
Job Offer Express Entry
With the amendment of reduced CRS point for job offers came as a ray of hope for those who had CRS scores below 400. In November 2016, the reduction in CRS point for a job offer gave way to those who had the desire to immigrate to Canada.
Initially, when Express Entry was first launched, every job offers backed by a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) had the value of 600 CRS points which saw a considerable drop of scores from 200 to an astonishing 50 points (depending upon the level of skill of the job). While senior managerial positions (NOC 00) was worth 200 points, other qualified job offers (National Occupational Classification 0, A or B) had the value of mere 50 points.
