Effective May 30 2015, CIC has made some technical amendments to the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) of Express Entry. Many candidates have seen point increase as a results.
The changes made are to the way in which points are awarded to candidates with Canadian work experience. So the changes have impacted only those who have cited Canadian experience for themselves or their partner.
As announced, Ministerial Instructions governing the Express Entry application management system were modified to remove the requirement that Canadian work experience be continuous for determining points under the Comprehensive Ranking System for the candidate, spouse or common-law partner so that means all Valid (Skilled) Canadian work experience will be recognized under the CRS.
As a result, foreign nationals with Canadian work experience could see an increase in their CRS points under the core human capital and skills transferability.
