Apply for Permanent Residence

Historic Drop in CRS Score 

Now is the time to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence


On Saturday, February 13th, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada announced an unprecedented Express Entry draw in which 27,332 candidates who met the Canadian Experience Class requirements were invited to apply for Canadian permanent residence.  This draw was designed for candidates who have been working in Canada for at least one year out of the past three, and who met minimum English or French language requirements.

As a result of the large number of invitations issued, the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score that was required to receive an invitation in this historic Express Entry draw dropped down to 75 points (from an average of 450 over the last 12 months).

Permanent Residence may now therefore be a realistic option for many who are interested in this unprecedented opportunity. If you would like to assess your eligibility, please contact us today to reserve your consultation.
