CRS Score Requirement in 2021

This year, the IRCC has opened all program-specific draws; hence, the candidates registered under Federal Skilled Worker Category are still waiting for their Invitation to Apply (ITA).

Under these circumstances, obtaining provincial nomination through a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is the best option to raise your CRS score in Express Entry and subsequently, get the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian PR Visa from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
