How low CRS score requirement will drop down this time around

Express Entry is Canada’s federal and world’s most popular immigration system. It is the fastest pathway to move to Canada on permanent residence visa. Hence, the discussions, speculations and buzz prior to every express entry draw is obvious thing to happen. This year, it is more so because IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada), has kept the applicants with low CRS score waiting since long.

Let’s find out more about the current trend of express entry draws and possibilities with regards to the upcoming draw of federal express entry system.

Express Entry Draw trends in 2018

This year, express entry draws followed some key trends whether it is about qualifying marks, number of invitations in a draw, or frequency of the draws.

Qualifying marks remained 440 or above throughout the year

This year, the CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) requirement or qualifying marks remained 440 or above all through the year. It never came down below 440 mark in any of the Express Entry draws opened so far in the year 2018. It has been consistently hovering around this mark in last five draws, as you can see in the graph above, i.e. 441, 440, 440, 440, 441. It was 441 in the latest draw launched on September 19, 2018. This is definitely some sort of arrangement done by IRCC to keep the qualifying marks around this mark.

Stable number of Invitations

The number of Invitations issued by IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) in every draw of federal express entry system, have also remained quite stable so far in the year.

In fact, from June 13th to August 22, 2018 it remained the same, i.e. 3750 invites in all six draws launched between these days. This trend was observed in 1st and 2nd quarter as well, when same number of invites were issued for four consistent draws, in each quarter. This again a trend which seemed to have some thinking or plan behind it, as same number of invitations issued continuously for a long time.

What are the expectation from upcoming EE draws?

All the candidates registered in the express entry with relatively low CRS Score, are eager to know as to what decision IRCC will make with regards to upcoming Express Entry draw results. Whether it will continue the ongoing trend or give some respite to the applicants in the final quarter of the year.

The speculations or predictions are hard to make considering the unexpected draw results this year and last year as well, however, experts believe that the IRCC can reduce the CRS score requirement marginally in the last quarter of the year. Although this reduction will not be huge. However, one thing is sure that even the small reduction is likely to invite huge number of candidates.

4 Common Mistakes When Applying for a Labour Market Opinion

Canadian employers looking to hire Temporary Foreign Workers must first receive government permission to hire from abroad. In most cases, this permission comes in the form of a Labour Market Opinion (LMO).

An LMO is a document issued by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) stating that the hiring of a foreign worker will have a positive or neutral effect on the Canadian labor market. Temporary foreign workers must receive an LMO in order to receive a temporary work permit unless specifically permitted to bypass this requirement. In order to receive a positive LMO, Canadian employers must submit an application where they successfully demonstrate that no Canadian citizen or permanent resident could be found to fill the desired position in Canada. The time period for preparing an application and receiving an LMO generally takes at least three months.

Because every employment situation is unique, no two LMO applications will be exactly the same. The complexity inherent in preparing such an individualized application means that refusals can happen for mistakes as simple as clerical errors. Below are four common mistakes employers make when applying for an LMO – and what can be done to avoid them:

1. Insufficient Recruitment in Canada: In almost all LMO applications, the Canadian employer must first recruit for the open position in Canada. Recently, HRSDC raised the minimum recruitment period from 2 weeks to a full 4 weeks. In most cases, HRSDC mandates that recruitment take place on the government jobs website (, or an equivalent provincial site). In addition, the employer is now, in most cases, required to advertise in two additional venues. Recruitment must be completed within three months of an LMO application submission. Additional rules apply to individuals looking to hire semi- and low-skilled workers.

An LMO application will be refused if recruitment standards are not met. To mitigate this, when possible employers should recruit for a period of time longer than the minimum amount required. They should also be aware that some positions may be advertising exempt. Many advertising exemptions vary from province to province.

2. Failure to Meet Wage and Job Requirements: Foreign workers in Canada are afforded the same job standards as their Canadian counterparts. The LMO application process serves, in part, as a way to ensure that these standards are upheld. The application asks employers to provide information on the wages, benefits, and general working conditions of the job being offered.

Employers must indicate that they will be paying their foreign worker a salary equal to or greater than the prevailing wage for their occupation. If they fail to do this or to meet Federal and Provincial job standards, the application will be refused. Employers should thoroughly research the salary standards for the job position.

3. Incomplete or Inaccurate Application: It goes without saying that the LMO application form should be filled out and checked for both completion and accuracy.

When preparing an application, employers should address the following questions:

  • Am I applying for the right approval? Does this job require an LMO, is it LMO-exempt, is it advertising exempt?
  • Am I able to provide all necessary papers on my business, if requested?
  • Am I prepared to speak with an HRSDC official about the job and desired employee, if they choose to call? If an employer cannot be reached, HRSDC may refuse an application.

4. Cannot Convince Officer of Need for a Foreign Worker: A positive LMO will not be issued if the officer reviewing the file believes that the hiring of a foreign worker will take a job away from qualified Canadians. This may happen if the requirements for the specified job are too broad, or the skills needed to perform job tasks are not particularly specialized, and therefore easy to fill.

When conducting recruitment in Canada, employers should be sure to carefully construct their advertisements to reflect the specific skills needed for the position. They should be aware that requiring competency in a language other than English or French is only allowed if the employer can demonstrate that knowledge of the language is essential. Providing a report of recruitment efforts and responses from interested candidates will strengthen one’s argument.

“Understanding the LMO process is a necessity for anybody looking to hire from abroad,” said Attorney David Cohen. “Of course, most employers wish to have their workers come to Canada as soon as possible. LMO applications require special care and attention to detail to ensure that employers don’t waste precious time and money reapplying.”

Ontario May Revise the Minimum CRS Score Rule for OINP- Express Entry HCP Stream

As per the reports, Ontario is likely to revise its minimum CRS score rule for OINP- HCP stream. If reports to be believed, the minimum CRS score requirement will now be determined by the Director.

As per the latest reports, Ontario may revise minimum CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score requirement rule applicable to Express Entry aligned Human Capital Priorities (HCP) stream of its Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP). As per the existing minimum CRS rule, applicants require minimum CRS score of 400 or above to apply in Express entry- HCP stream of OINP.

CRS Rule Requirement Revised by OINP

As per the latest news reports, the minimum CRS score requirement will now be determined by the Director.

Moreover, candidates have been suggested to show interest in ‘immigrating to Ontario’ or select the option of “all provinces and territories” when registering their profile in federal express entry system. It is important to know that individuals willing to apply in OINP- Express Entry- HCP stream, first need to have their profile registered in Express Entry System.

Reduced Significance of CRS Score Rule in OINP Draws this year

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) didn’t really follow the minimum CRS score rule in the OINP draws launched this year. The important thing to note here is that among all three OINP draws this year, two of them were targeting the Express Entry candidates with job offer in the province of Ontario, while one was targeting the candidates with francophone skills, i.e. having the CLB 7 or higher level of proficiency in French language.

OINP dropped the CRS score requirement for these draws below 400 CRS points. In fact, in the August 9, 2018 draw (targeting express entry applicants with job offer in Ontario) required CRS score as low as 350 CRS points.

OINP- Express Entry HCP stream- a key pathway to obtain Canada PR

The Express Entry- Human Capital Priorities Stream of Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) is one of the most popular Canadian PNP streams. It provides the express entry candidates a key pathway to obtain Canada PR. The express entry applicants, who get Notification, apply in OINP, and remain successful, receive 600 additional CRS points in express entry based on the received nomination from Ontario province.

Such massive additional number of CRS points makes an express entry applicant eligible to receive ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canadian permanent residency from IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) in the subsequent Express Entry draw.
