Overview of key Changing taking effect from June 6, 2017

The express entry applicants, who have a sibling in Canada, can obtain extra points as per revised CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System). These points can also be claimed, if the spouse of the applicant has a sibling in Canada. However, the sibling in Canada must be a permanent resident or Citizen of Canada and needs to be 18 years or above. Total 15 points can be obtained for having a sibling in Canada. Additional points will remain 15 only whether you have one or more sibling in Canada. The government believes that people with siblings in Canada have better chances of integrating faster in the Canadian society and conditions.
The Candidates with proficiency in French language will also get additional CRS points as per the new changes. Hence, if you speak well as an express entry applicant, you can claim extra CRS points for your French ability. The applicants with French proficiency can obtain either 15 or 30 CRS points. For instance, 15 extra CRS points will be allocated to candidates who poses adequate intermediate (CLB, 7) or better French language proficiency, and English proficiency of CLB 4 or lower. Moreover, candidates who poses intermediate or better French language proficiency, and who also poses English language proficiency of CLB 5 or above, can acquire 30 extra CRS points.
This change doesn’t belong to CRS points system, but to the Express Entry profile of a candidate. The Job Bank account registration will not be compulsory now onwards for the applicants not having Canadian job offer or provincial nomination. However, they can voluntarily choose to create the Job bank account to explore the available job opportunities in the Job bank.

"First of all I would like to thank Tabby K who initially guided me in detail through the Australian PR process, even though I had already conveyed that I will not be signing up for any Professional Services and will be filing it on my own. Still she detailed out every step and answered all my queries then and there itself. Secondly and most importantly a big thanks to our case officer Kirti Chauhan whose impeccable professionalism and patience in hearing and responding to our thousand queries helped us achieving the Visa. We used to be extra cautious and pessimistic with every step, but she always kept us motivated and was a great support during the whole process. I will definitely recommend Visas Avenue to all Visa aspirants."
