Did you know that language ability is worth up to 260 CRS points in total for a single candidate? French and English are Canada’s official languages so take a French class and learn both to gain more points.
Although Canadian work experience is more valued than non-Canadian work experience, if you have less than three years of full-time experience, keep working!
Having a Canadian study experience can significantly increase your score.
If you have two or more certificates, diplomas, or degrees you may be able to claim extra points under the education section.
Candidates with a spouse, however, may have additional potential for improving their CRS score because the spouses level of education, language ability, and Canadian work experience may all be rewarded.
6. Provincial Nominee Programs
If you want a 600-point boost to your CRS score, plus the knowledge that you are being welcomed with open arms into your chosen destination province, it’s time to learn about the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).
7. Job Offer
While the relative value of a qualifying job offer is not as great as it once was – in most cases, down to 50 CRS points from a previous value of 600 points – obtaining a job offer remains an important factor.
