Hello Readers,

Canadian Government has announced a slew of changes which will have impact on your CRS score while the profile is under express entry on 10th November 2016, these changes will be implemented and applicable on all profiles from 19th November 2016.

The most important policy change impacts those candidates who are seeking LMIA job roles. People will now receive 200 points instead of 600 points before and the 200 points will be allotted only to those who receive an approved job role in NOC starting with 00. All other NOC’s receive 50 points for LMIA roles.

Only following NOC job roles will receive 200 points for LMIA –

  • Legislators – 0011
  • Senior Government Manager officials  – 0012
  • Senior Financial / Communication Manager – 0013
  • Senior Manager Health / educational/ social / community services – 0014
  • Senior manager trade, broadcasting – 0015
  • Senior Manager transportation, constructions, productions and utility managers – 0016

All other NOC’s apart from these Senior Manager roles will receive only 50 points, essentially if you are not in 400+ CRS range, there is no use pursuing LMIA roles. You need to have senior / middle senior management role LMIA approval to receive 200 points. There was some confusion on this change of scores, but the descriptive writing in the article confirms these point allocation system.

This will have a huge impact on lower skilled trades people who went on to receive 600 points despite lower skills and were eligible for Canadian PR. This leaves Provincial Nominations as the only way to receive 600 points and receive Permanent Resident, if you are in 400 or lower CRS score bracket, go for PNP without second doubts since there is not many ways left.

After a long wait for policy change announcements, Canadian Government published changes applicable to Express Entry scoring system from 19th November 2016. As predicted before on OOPNP articles published, the voices of Canadian graduates and students in Canada have got positive reply.

According to the announcements, students who have graduated with Canadian Education will receive an additional score for their Canadian educations ranked upto 30 points. Under the new system, the students who have completed their secondary school from Canada will not receive any points, but the students who have studied one-year or two year post-secondary program will gain additional 15 points.

A maximum of 30 points are allocated to the foreign nationals having studied a post-secondary program of 3 years or more duration or an eligible Master’s education or entry level professional course for occupation listed under NOC Matrix Skill Level A for which the licensing is required OR the student has completed university level education at Doctoral level.

Apart from awarding additional points for Canadian education, the time limit for application submission after ITA has also been increased to 90 days instead of 60 days before. The candidates after creating their profile in express entry pool can see their relative rankings in the pool to have a fair idea about their current standing.

Although, there is a mention of Skill Transferability point changes in the article but we noticed it’s just another way of interpreting the existing score charts , there is essentially no change in CRS scores allotted for the skills transferability.

There has been no mention yet of additional points allocation for Siblings staying in Canada and we believe it will be announced soon but there will not be major changes expected here. We predict a maximum of 15-30 points will be allocated to this criteria if Canadian Government decides to go ahead with this.

Overall, the system is fairly balanced now with priority given to those who have Canadian education experience, since they have previous experience of Canadian economy and industry. It’s easy to predict that those people will have better chances to integrate in economy and contribute to labour market.

The new point system implements on 19th November 2016, we are expecting one draw on 16th November 2016, which should clear the last candidates who have received 600 points via LMIA roles, after this the points will go down to 200 and next draw will be drawn based on new point system.

There is a possibility that the Cut-Off score range for ITA may go higher for at least next 4-5 draws, since the complete pool has at least 25% Canadian educated students, who will claim upto 30 points taking higher cut-offs. Once this is cleared, the scores should come down and settle around 440-450 in Q1 of 2017. 

We must quote here that Overall 47 clients used OOPNP.com consultancy services in the month of October 2016 to receive LMIA roles and have moved on to receive 600 points towards their CRS scores. We hope the PNP applications will rise higher and those who are seeking Senior Management roles with LMIA should not delay in their efforts.

We will keep you posted on any further policy change announcements.

      430 may be the score around ending Q1 2017 but the next couple of draws will be good indicator. My suggestion is go for PNP / LMIA Roles without second thoughts.

          If your points have not updated till now, go ahead delete your profile and setup a new one, wait 2 days to get update. If this does not work, raise a CSE or call them to fix it.

    Do you really think they may add points for siblings later? Why haven’t they done it with this recent announcement then?

      No, we do not think so and we don’t want that to happen. Just having a sibling in Canada does not make you eligible to immigrate to Canada and does not make you worth of CANADIAN Labor market and contributor to their economy.

        I’m quoting your article:”There has been no mention yet of additional points allocation for Siblings staying in Canada and we believe it will be announced soon but there will not be major changes expected here. We predict a maximum of 15-30 points will be allocated to this criteria if Canadian Government decides to go ahead with this.” So in the above comment you are contradicting yourself. In the article you wrote one thing (we predict additional points for siblings to be announced later) and in the comment another (no, we don’t expect anything). As for eligibility, Express Entry already has eligibility criteria. And of course having a sibling alone doesn’t make one eligible. It’s just additional points to be added to one’s IELTS, ECA, work experience, etc. And I didn’t ask your opinion whether points for siblings is a good thing or not.

      Post 19th, the new LMIA approvals will receive 200 points not 600 points and past that the new draws will have applicants who have received 200 points only.

        Points for LMIA will be either 200 for managerial positions or 50 for other positions. Stop confusing people and read the official announcement once again.

            I was referring to the above comment you made, where you mentioned only 200 points and said nothing about 50. In the article you did mention this.

    Hi
    What is your predictions for the 16th draw considering that they need to clear all the current LMIA holders? Still between 465-470?

      We expect they may also need 2 draws to clear such candidates, our predictions will remain same as posted in this article. CRS may move a bit higher keeping around 485-490 bracket. This is based on fact that they have such LMIA candidates, otherwise the bracket may stay similar in 470’s.

      Yes. we do expect a draw to take in Past LMIA candidates who have received 600 points in recent couple of weeks period. It’s possible scores to go higher in next 3-4 draws before it settles down.

    Hi Rachael,
    My CRS score is 467, do I hold chances to get ITA in the draw on 16th Nov ? I am about to lose 5 points due to age mid next month in Dec, according to you are there any chances to get ITA before that ?
    Also want to clarify one point, CRS on day of ITA is considered for further processing even though is reduces due to age factor after receiving ITA ?
    With the new policy in place, will there be change in CRS (decrease or increase) for existing candidates with no LMIA ?
    Thanks in advance 🙂

      People with NO LMIA will not have any changes, unless your age goes up, points will come down without a doubt.
      467 has little or no chances in next draw, the score may push higher.

      If you are loosing points, try finding your way out of this using PNP or Job roles in Canada. Consult us at – consultant@oopnp.com

        Thanks for immediate reply.
        Do we see the CRS to drop to 460 next year, because even after reducing points due to age I get 462 points. I am staying hopeful to get through at least next year. I have been too patient and waiting for a year now in this system.

          462 has a fair chance of getting through by Q1 2017 unless Canadian Government gives additional points to siblings, which may shoot score to 500+ bracket.
          And it’s not just a possibility, there is a fair chance of this declaration in this year.

    Hi Rachel, does this rule change imply that to secure 50 points for job offer we don’t need LMIA now? I am on 397 points and can secure a job offer right away to get 50 points and redo IELTS for spouse to shoot the score to 404. Do you think it’s worth keeping hopes for CRS score to come down to 450 in the coming months? Please let me know.

      Hello Niharika,

      I believe i emailed you yesterday.
      You are correct one does not need LMIA for securing points now, you can get 50 points with arranged job offer, there is no need for LMIA. In your case, just go for job offer and secure 50 points instead of wasting resources on IELTS improvements. CRS will come to 450 levels and you will gain entry for sure. CRS is not coming down to 404 in any case.

      Go ahead with our Job Role Consultancy services to avail the 50 points towards your CRS.

        Thanks Rachel! I have written to you today.
        My score right now is 397 so with job offer it shoots to 447. Is that good enough to expect express entry? As per my understanding, the cut off may not come down from 450, it never has so far. Please let me know your thoughts.

        Rachael, thanks for your reply above.

        I see the definition of ‘Qualifying offer of arranged employment’ on cic website http://www.gazette.gc.ca/rp-pr/p1/2016/2016-11-12/html/notice-avis-eng.php

        It says ‘the offer is supported by a valid assessment — provided by the Department of Employment and Social Development’. Does this not mean that the employer will still need to apply for the assessment which was earlier called LMIA? Thanks for your help.

          LMIA and valid assessment have the basic difference which is the employer need not go through the government approval and pay LMIA fee or do any formalities. Any job offer which is deemed eligible by LMIA can have employees from foreign based immigrants without any paper work.

      I am sorry you will not. We are not counting Canadian experience, only jobs which has positive LMIA assessment will get 50 points. The only change is the employer does not need to complete the LMIA process, it’s automatically granted extra 50 points.

    Will there be additional point increment other than 15 point for 2-years program.
    I am working under NOC-A for more than an year.. Are there any points that I receive for canadian work experience?
    Also, what are the expectation to reach draw to my updated score (may be 450) that I would have by Nov 19?

    My LMIA will likely be approved on the 18th November. If the express entry profile is updated prior to the 19th i.e 18th will I get the 600 points and get considered for one of the remaining clear up draws?

    hi Rachael, thanks for the replies i really enjoys your answers as these are very informative, i have question : as per gazette there is no mention of 600 points for LMIA to support the permanent residency for the FW who is not in Canada and never worked in Canada my friend got LMIA approved in October, what you think it may affect him too, as in the gazette its only said about FW who are working in Canada, what would happen to positive LMIA applicants to support permanent residency(no work permit), i mean it was before arranged employment to support permanent residency only(no LMIA processing fees from esdc)

      After 19th the new point system is valid as mentioned on notice. If someone got in October he will still have 600 points.

    Currently at 468 points. On November 19th, I will be getting 30 additional points taking my total CRS score to 498. What are my chances before or after Nov 19th? My PGWP is expiring in Feb 2017 and I am hoping to secure an ITA in order to apply for my BOWP and continue working…

    Hello Rachael,

    My CRS score is 464 at the moment but after mid December 2016 it will be reduced to 459, what are my chances of getting an ITA by mid december , please share your valuable advise on this.

    Shall i opt for PNP if given a chance ?? Read on oopnp website that there are going to be changes in pnp score for Ontario, it is going to increase to 450 – previously it was 400 points.

    Have also applied for PEI (Prince Edward Island) PNP progeramme some time back but haven’t heard from them yet, not sure if i will ever hear back to be honest as I believe that most of the candidates they pick are from Information Technology or Science background- meaning they need techies on a broader scale. No where they have declared this but looking at the trends in past can predict such a pattern.

    Waiting to hear from ya, cheers!

      459 is a good score, you can expect something in Q1 2017. If PNP comes your way, grab it with both hands. PEI needs specific format for approval, we know it since 17 candidates of our consultancy services were approved in October.
      Go for PNP without a doubt, if you want to make sure you land in Canada.

    Hi
    if I get my LMIA on 18th November and get 600 points in my profile.
    will these 600 points be accepted in the next draw after 19 November?
    or 550 points will be deducted from my profile after that?

    Will I be getting additional points if my employer offers me a letter saying I will be given fulltime permanent job offer under the same noc category which i am working right now?
    Or does that letter help me in any way?

    Hello Rachel,

    I have 429 CRS points as of now. I have 3-year BA Economics from University of Waterloo, which will boost my score to 459 I guess. On top of that, my employer is willing to give me the job offer letter. Does he need to advertise the job for a month and apply for LMIA? Also I have IELTS General Training for UKVI. Do you think that will work? IELTS website says IELTS General Training for UKVI is valid for immigration to all the countries.

    Thank you

      If your Work permit states same companies name where you work, you should be able to get points for work which is 50 more points. Wait till 1am-3am UTC time on 19th November, browse your profile make changes and see if you get more score.

      Ontario discussions from our colleague working from OINP suggest the CRS CUT-OFF will go higher to 450 and it really make sense after what happened this year when OINP was flooded with applications sitting at 400 score. But we do not guarantee this projection.
      Our suggestion is to go for any PNP you can without second thoughts.

    My question is, my current roles and responsibilities are related to NOC code – 2171 – “Information systems analysts and consultants”. Will it create a problem while approving my PR application because my current NOC is not matched to Job offer NOC?
