For skilled individuals wishing to migrate to Canada, the country offers the Express Entry system to apply for permanent residence. If you have the required points for eligibility which is 67 points at present, you can make your application through the Express Entry system.
The next step is to score the required points in the Comprehensive Ranking system to get an invitation to apply or ITA for Canada PR Visa under the Express Entry immigration program. The CRS is a merit-based points system where points are given to candidates based on certain factors. Every applicant in the Express Entry system is assigned a CRS score out of 1200 points and if he scores highest points under the CRS, he will get an ITA for the PR visa. The CRS score keeps changing with every Express Entry draw which is held approximately every two weeks by the Canadian government.
