Six Selection Factors of Canada PR

Canada's skilled immigration and permanent residency process are perhaps the best in the world for many reasons. In the modern era, very few advanced countries are welcoming immigrants without any fuss or issues. Canada is certainly on top of the list of immigrant-friendly countries. The high immigration rate of Canada speaks for its lenient immigration policy. 

That is why every skilled worker looking to make it big in an advanced nation, seems interested in Canada immigration and PR process. If you are one of the Canadian PR aspirants, let us determine the six selection factors of Canada PR (Permanent Residency) visa.

What are the six selection factors of Canada PR?

Canada has employed the fastest Express Entry point-based immigration system as a pathway to allocate the permanent residence visa to the skilled and talented people from overseas, who register their profile in this system every year. Express Entry depends on a point system that assesses the applicants based on six selection factors and allocates points to the applicants accordingly. 

Points obtained for these factors first decide your eligibility for Federal skilled worker category of Express Entry. When you reach Express entry pool, your CRS score in EE pool determine, whether you will get the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada PR from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship of Canada). The selection factors for other immigration programs of Canada, such as the provincial nominee program, are also the same.

After 35 years of age, your points for age factor start decreasing, however, you can still get PR invitation if your score is acceptable based on other factors and obtained provincial nomination from a province of Canada.
