Recent Express Entry Round Shows Low CRS Requirement Score

So far in 2017, there have been 19 round invitations under Express Entry. There were 2,991 invitations issued to individuals seeking permanent residency in Canada in the last round. Candidates from the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, Canadian Experience Class and Provincial Nominee Program were eligible for this round of invitations.

The Canadian Immigration and Citizenship authorities rank candidates in the pool using a points-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The CRS will rank individuals on core/human capital factors such as age, a level of education, official languages proficiency, and Canadian work experience. You can find tips on the best ways to improve your CRS score here.

In the most recent round, the 19th in 2017 and the 69th overall, it held a low Comprehensive Ranking System score of 433, higher than most 2017 rounds.

    Sir/Ma,
    Given the example of the couple above,Maurice and Maria,should a couple apply individually or in one application?
    If one has submitted an application for permanent residence following an ITA, how is one certain that that application is receiving attention after 4 months?
    Is a scbedule A form filled out by everyone offered an ITA?
