Canadian immigration: How to improve your Express Entry CRS score

Express Entry candidates may be able to maximize their CRS score and improve their chance of getting an ITA.

A Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score is the most influential factor in receiving an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence through the Express Entry system.

Put simply, candidates with the highest CRS scores are the most likely to get an ITA. If you are not confident that your CRS score is high enough, there are some factors within your control that you can change to get a higher score.
