On November 1 last, the government revealed its Canada Immigration Plan for 2018-2020. It outlined Canada’s commitment to increase the numbers accepted through the Federal Skilled Worker Class, Canadian Experience Class, and Federal Skilled Trades Class to around 250,000 over the next three years, with another 184,000 or so new permanent residents to settle through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) before the end of 2020.
More invitations are expected to be issued over the coming weeks, months, and years, benefiting individuals and families around the world wishing to make Canada their new permanent home.

The Comprehensive Ranking System is a score out of 1,200 used to benchmark federal economic applicants against one another.
It’s a part of the Express Entry mechanism, which was established in January 2015 to process residency applications.
The score is used as a cut-off point in Express Entry draws. It is designed to project a candidate’s likelihood of being economically successful in Canada.
Candidates who obtain a provincial nomination through one of the Express Entry-aligned Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) streams receive 600 additional CRS points and an ITA at a subsequent draw from the pool.
A single candidate can earn up to 260 points for high proficiency in English and French, while a couple can earn up to 270 points. Moving2Canada readers can now avail of a seven-day free trial of online language tutorials. Simply select to Learn English or Learn French and complete the online form.
