IRCC introduces new changes in Express Entry, will applicable from 6 June
IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has introduced a new change in its Comprehensive Rating System (CRS). From June 6, 2017 onwards the French Speakers and the candidates with siblings with get additional points under the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System. Apart from this, registration in Canada Job Bank will become voluntary.


  • As of June 6, candidates with a sibling in Canada who is a Canadian citizen or everlasting resident of at the least 18 years of age can be awarded 15 additional CRS points. These factors may also be presented if the candidate’s spouse or common-law partner has a sibling in Canada.
  • The candidate or his or her partner/common-law associate should share a mother and/or father with the sibling in Canada. This dating may be through blood, adoption, marriage, or commonplace-law partnership.
  • According to IRCC, ‘having a sibling in Canada has been proven to enhance health and social effects via accelerating a newcomer’s integration into their new lifestyles in Canada.’

Presently, the CRS system will continue its previous way of selecting high scored candidates from the pool of candidates. It is expected that IRCC will continue its draws until the new change becomes applicable.

Since the Express Entry introduced in January 2015, no changes have been made before November 2016.  From January 2015 to now, Canada has welcomed more than 43,000 immigrants from around the world. Nearly 90,000 Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence have been issued in that time, with many applicants either awaiting a decision on their application or having received confirmation of permanent residence, but not having yet completed the process of landing in Canada.
