Express Entry CRS Score Decreasing Gradually
Like the previous Express Entry invitation round, the CRS score is gradually decreasing since IRCC's resumed all-program EE draws on 6th July. Moreover, from the first quarter of 2023, Canada will start inviting Express Entry applicants based on occupation groupings.
As per Bill C-19, announced earlier in 2022, the immigration minister is also eligible to invite applicants based on occupation groupings instead of CRS scores alone.
Groupings may include a combination of the applicant's work experience with in-demand occupations or particular occupations, educational background and language proficiency. Since candidates will be ranked against one another in the grouping instead of the whole Express Entry pool, the CRS score is most likely to be significantly lower compared to the recent general EE draws.
