Tips to improve the CRS score for Canadian Visa

Many immigrants find it difficult to clear the CRS score cut-offs. For all of them, it is important to improve their score. Here’s a look at some factors which can help in increasing the CSR score and apply for Canada PR visa:

  • Higher education

Education is an important factor in the calculation of the CRS score. If you have high-level education such as Doctor, it can help in scoring 140 points. 

  • Proficiency in the French language

If the candidate is proficient in French apart from English, this can add to some extra points. They need to select French as their second official language and take the test for scoring CRS points. 

  • Sibling in Canada

If the applicant has a sibling in Canada as a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, it can help in getting extra points. 

  • Retake the language test

The CRS points are given to the candidate when they prove their proficiency in the English language. The candidates need to take the IELTS test. If they improve their IELTS score, they will earn more points. 

  • Get more work experience

Under this category, points are rewarded for more work experience that you gather. If the applicant has less than 3 years of experience, they can continue to get more experience. 

  • Get a provincial nomination certificate

This is the most beneficial way of improving the CRS score. For the express entry candidate, it gives them 600 CRS points. 

  • Spouse- primary applicant

People who are applying for Canada PR Visa with their spouse, and if they have a high CRS score than the candidate, the spouse should be made the primary applicant when submitting the application. 

  • LMIA approved job- offer

If the applicant gets a labour market impact assessment approved job-offer, it can help the candidate in getting extra 50 CRS points. In fact, previously, it was 600 CRS points, but now it has reduced to 50 points. 

Once the candidate improves the score of above-mentioned factors, they can calculate the CRS score using the latest Canada express entry point calculator.
