So you are above 35 and you want to immigrate to Canada. But then, you don’t know what your chances might be since Canada favours younger and vibrant youths.
Candidates who are below 35 years stand a better chance of getting a provincial or federal nomination. The express entry system created to bring more candidates to Canada uses a point-based technique to rank candidates who enter the express entry pool.
Candidates of younger age often receive a better score compared to those who are above 35 years. Those who are above 40 receive a significantly low score and at 47 years, your comprehensive ranking.
If you are between 35 to 40 years, you still stand a chance of migrating easily to Canada. This article will provide you with tips to help your immigration dreams.
First and most importantly, you need a very good Express Entry profile, starting with a good IELTS score, good educational qualification, some years of work experience, and enough funds to take care of your migration process and application.
The selection factors in Canada’s Express Entry System includes:
- Work Experience
- Language skills (English or French)
- Arranged employment.
“Age” is just one of the factors from a possible six, so getting a better score in the remaining factors will surely do the trick.
Another trick you can try is to apply to a province that accepts a low Comprehensive Ranking score. This year, some of Canada’s provincial nominee programs sent invitations to candidates with very low CRS.
Candidates who had scored as low as 303, received an invitation. Many of the provinces lacked talent and skills in many occupations, with many vacant spaces created.
As a result of this, the provinces resulted in searching the express entry pool for candidates with the required and specific skills to fill these positions. Those candidates who have the talents they need to improve their labour market shortages were invited.
Those invited will be given an additional 600 points, this will put them in a good position to apply for permanent residency. Alberta sent Invitations to Express Entry Candidates with Score As-Low-As 303 CRS.
