Will CRS remain at 450 Plus or not? While this is debatable, the current trend of cut-off score for ITA issued by IRCC shows an upward move. What is the way out for applicants?

Applicants should be ready to think out of the box to fulfill their Canadian Immigration dream. Let’s do some simulations using the CRS tool.

Married Applicants with foreign work experience only (Skill type 0/Skill level A/B), ESL.

Scenario One
Age: Between 20-29
PR ECA: 2 year post-secondary education
Canadian degree: None
PR IELTS score: L8.5, R8, S7.5, W7.5
Years of experience: 3 years +
Spouse ECA: 2 year post-secondary education
Spouse IELTS: L6, R6, S6, W6
No relatives in Canada or Canadian work experience
CRS = 413

Scenario Two
Age: Between 20-29
ECA: Bachelor’s degree (three or more years in a post-secondary school)
Canadian degree: None
IELTS score: L8.5, R8, S7.5, W7.5
Years of experience: 3 years +
Spouse ECA: Bachelor’s degree (three or more years in a post-secondary school)
Spouse IELTS: L6, R6, S6, W6
No relatives in Canada or Canadian work experience
CRS = 435

Scenario Three
Age: Between 20-29
ECA: OND or NCE + HND or BSC (two or more certificates with one being three years or more)
Canadian degree: None
IELTS score: L8.5, R8, S7.5, W7.5
Years of experience: 3 years +
Spouse ECA: 2 year post-secondary education
Spouse IELTS: L6, R6, S6, W6
No relatives in Canada
CRS = 466

Scenario Four
Age: Between 20-29
ECA: OND or NCE + HND or BSC (two or more certificates with one being three years or more)
Canadian degree: None
IELTS score: L8.5, R8, S7.5, W7.5
Years of experience: 3 years +
Spouse ECA: Bachelor’s degree (three or more years in a post-secondary school)
Spouse IELTS: L6, R6, S6, W6
No relatives in Canada
CRS = 467

Scenario Five
Age: Between 20-29
ECA: MSC
Canadian degree: None
IELTS score: L8.5, R8, S7.5, W7.5
Years of experience: 3 years +
Spouse ECA: Bachelor’s degree (three or more years in a post-secondary school)
Spouse IELTS: L6, R6, S6, W6
No relatives in Canada
CRS = 474

Note that CRS points reduce by 5 points from age 30 and above with deduction of additional 5 points for every birthday.
For instance, 30 years old = -5, 31 years old = -10, 32 years old = -15, 33 years old = -20, 34 years old = -25, 35 years old = -30, etc.

Having a relative who’s a citizen or permanent resident in Canada gives you additional 15 points.

The simulations above were done with the assumption that the PA is married and gets maximum score for age, maximum score for IELTS and the spouse has the lowest acceptable scores for IELTS. The varying factors in all the simulations is the level of education for the PA and the spouse.

With the maximum score for age and IELTS, only the applicant with Msc with a spouse that has a Bsc would have made the May 29th, 2019 draw. Bear in mind however that very few people would have the maximum score for age and would have gotten their Msc. The question then is, ‘what happens to the countless number of applicants in the pool who are above 30 years old and neither have an Msc nor the highest band in IELTS?’.

How can you improve your chances of winning with IRCC?

Let’s redo the simulations above with additional language test (TEF).

Scenario One
Age: Between 20-29
PR ECA: 2 year post-secondary education

TEF score: L300, R250, S375, W375
Years of experience: 3 years +
Spouse ECA: 2 year post-secondary education
Spouse IELTS: L6, R6, S6, W6
No relatives in Canada or Canadian work experience
CRS = 465

Scenario Two
Age: Between 20-29
ECA: Bachelor’s degree (three or more years in a post-secondary school)
Canadian degree: None
IELTS score: L8.5, R8, S7.5, W7.5
TEF score: L300, R250, S375, W375
Years of experience: 3 years +
Spouse ECA: Bachelor’s degree (three or more years in a post-secondary school)
Spouse IELTS: L6, R6, S6, W6
No relatives in Canada or Canadian work experience
CRS = 487

Scenario Three
Age: Between 20-29
ECA: OND or NCE + HND or BSC (two or more certificates with one being three years or more)
Canadian degree: None
IELTS score: L8.5, R8, S7.5, W7.5
TEF score: L300, R250, S375, W375
Years of experience: 3 years +

Spouse IELTS: L6, R6, S6, W6
No relatives in Canada
CRS = 518

Scenario Four

Canadian degree: None
IELTS score: L8.5, R8, S7.5, W7.5
TEF score: L300, R250, S375, W375
Years of experience: 3 years +
Spouse ECA: Bachelor’s degree (three or more years in a post-secondary school)
Spouse IELTS: L6, R6, S6, W6
No relatives in Canada
CRS = 519

Scenario Five
Age: Between 20-29
ECA: MSC
Canadian degree: None
IELTS score: L8.5, R8, S7.5, W7.5
TEF score: L300, R250, S375, W375
Years of experience: 3 years +
Spouse ECA: Bachelor’s degree (three or more years in a post-secondary school)
Spouse IELTS: L6, R6, S6, W6
No relatives in Canada
CRS = 526

Did you notice the extra points that French language test can add to your point? The extra points is enough to cover the points you loss because of age. For example, a married applicant, Age 36, BSc, IELTS and TEF, 3yrs work experience will have 452 Points (Plus Spouse IELTS at band 6 and BSc ECA Reports). See how a candidate took advantage of this and got ITA during the last draw

Irrespective of age, everyone has a chance to make this a reality. Alternatively, go for Provincial Nomination Program (PNP) to have high CRS Points of 900+.

Good luck to you all in your Canadian pursuits!

CHEERS TO GROWTH!
