Candidates in Express Entry Pool with Tied CRS Scores Now Ranked by IRCC by Time of Profile Submission

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) presented this component, alongside different changes to the CRS, on June 6, 2017.

After entering the pool, competitors are alloted a CRS score in view of variables including common status data, training, work understanding, dialect capacity, and other criteria. This score decides their positioning in the pool, and hopefuls with a similar score are positioned by the date and time they presented their profile.

Amid occasional draws, IRCC issues ITAs to the most elevated positioning hopefuls. Those competitors who get an ITA may present an application for Canadian changeless inhabitant status.

Preceding this refresh, all applicants in the pool with the base CRS score required at the season of a draw got an ITA. IRCC has expressed that this ‘[made] it hard for the Department to oversee welcome rounds
