If you are waiting for the ITA (Invitation to Apply) since long, but not getting the same due to low CRS score, you may choose to apply in any of the Canadian Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

If you apply in a PNP and are nominated, it will make you eligible to get extra 600 CRS points in your Express Entry account.
