After this, the suitability of candidates is assessed for diverse selection factors under the CRS or Comprehensive Ranking System. The factors include among others applicants’ age, language proficiency, work experience, education, etc.  

You will receive the ITA in the draw for which your CRS score is equal to or higher than the cut-off score specified for that specific Express Entry draw. It is one of the fastest and most popular immigration programs in Canada. Totally 1200 points are available to the candidates in CRS.

You will have to offer specific details about your profile in the Express Entry System to the determination of your CRS score. The queries asked to you in the portal include details of your language proficiency, skills, work experience, education, adaptability, etc. The answers that you provide will determine your CRS score and ranking for a particular draw. This will decide if you will receive or not the ITA for Canada PR Visa.
