Point-based system of Express-Entry Program?

Understanding the point-based system of the express entry one needs to have a proper understanding of the point-based system. The first step is the creation of the express entry profile. This has to be done online. Now depending on different factors, the profile will be given some points. Based on the points the candidate’s profile will be given a ranking. Candidates with better rankings will naturally have an upper edge. They will have better chances of selection in the express entry draw. The candidates who are selected in the express entry draw will be given the invitation to apply for a permanent visa. The candidates have to make sure that they submit the online application for the PR visa and all the supporting documents at the earliest. They need to do this within 60 days of receipt of the invitation to apply for the visa. The point allocation in the Canada Express Entry Immigration program:

There are different factors that influence the point system. When a candidate is applying under the Federal Skilled Worker program then the point allocation is based on Core or Human capital factors, and skills transferability factors and the candidate can also score some additional points based on certain special factors. The total number of points is 1200 and the candidate has to aim to get as many points as possible. But there are some factors that the candidate cannot influence. For example, in the human capital factors, points are allocated based on age. Candidates who are less than 18 years or more than 45 years will not get any points in the age criteria. Now age is something that the candidate cannot influence. But in the core or human capital factors, there are some factors where the candidate can try and score more points. For example, he can get a better score on the English language proficiency test, or candidates with a master’s Degree will get more points as compared to one with a bachelor’s degree, etc.

In the Skills transferability, the candidate can score a maximum of 100 points. There are 5 combinations and in each case, the candidate can get a maximum of 50 points. In the case of additional points, the candidate has a chance to score bonus points. If the candidate gets the provincial nomination then he can get an additional 600 points. Proficiency in the French language and having a sibling in Canada who is a permanent resident or citizen of Canada can also help the candidate score additional points.
Make sure that you have all the documents with you: There are several documents that the candidate will have to submit if he wants to get the PR visa. The candidate will have to submit a medical examination certificate to prove that he is in good health. The candidate will also have to submit the police verification certificate to prove that he has good character and is not a potential danger to Canada. The candidate will also have to submit proof of funds. Those candidates who have completed their education from foreign universities will have to submit the Education Credential Report to prove that their degree is at par with Canadian universities. Depending on the program and the requirement the candidate may be asked to submit documents other than the ones that are mentioned above
