Why Canada is Declaring a High CRS Score?

There are range of parameters responsible for the high CRS score.

  • The first and foremost reason that could be responsible for such a high cut-off is a huge backlog of applications.
  • According to government data, the application backlog number has grown by almost 2.4 million until now.
  • Reduced number of express entry targets for the year 2022. For this year government has reduced the target by around 50% because there are a large number of Canada PR applications submitted through a temporary PR program in 2021. However, the number has increased by 25% for the year 2023 and it may raise more for the year 2024.
  • The Canada government has occupied some reserve places for the upcoming programs. As per some recent announcements, there is a range of immigration programs supposed to come for temporary residence.
