The fastest way to get Canada Permanent Resident is Canada Express Entry. To enter the Express Entry pool, individuals need to calculate their Express Entry Points also, called Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points. These points are awarded to candidates for their language ability, age, work experience, education and many more.
The candidates in the pool are ranked according to the CRS points. The highest ranked candidate will get the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada PR.
There are multiple ways to increase your CRS points and have chances to get an invitation soon.
Improving your Language Abilities
Did you know that being a single candidate for Express Entry, you can achieve up to 260 points and even 270 points being a couple?
Achieving highest IELTS score is the one of the way to increase your CRS points. You need to score at least CLB 7 to meet eligibility criteria for Canada Express Entry Program, which means 6 in each module of the IELTS. However, the candidate can also achieve Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level of 9 in each ability. Your little hard work and effort to score CLB 9 will be a positive effect on your CRS scores.
You can also add up to 22 points by learning French language and appear for the second language test.
