The value of points for Express Entry applicants
If you are migrating to Canada under the Express Entry system, generally you fill out an online form first. After that, the automated online scoring system known as CRS will give you a score. Each applicant stays in the pool of Express Entry for up to one year. On the other hand, IRCC selects a few hundred applicants from the pool on monthly basis. Unquestionably, the selection emphases on the highest CRS points in the system. As a result, the higher your score, the better your odds for an ITA.
