It’s common for aspiring immigrants aiming for Canada to hear technical terms. These include “Express Entry”, “CRS score” and “tie break rule”. They hear these when they go through the visa application and Canada immigration process.
While a migration consultant will take care of a lot of nuances involved in the immigration process, to know certain terminology will be a benefit to applicants.
“Tie break rule” is one such term, which represents an important aspect of applying for immigration. Ever since COVID-19 has caused the borders to be restricted since March 18, 2020, all the draws held since have implemented the tie break rule.
The term is related to prioritizing profiles of candidates existing in the Express Entry pool. It’s employed to rank candidates withidentical Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) scores. The ranking in tie break is done based on the date and time the candidates’ profiles were added to the pool. The CRS score is the primary factor used in the selection of candidates to be invited to apply for permanent residence.
The tie break rule is generally applied to candidates who have the same CRS score as the draw’s CRS cut off score. A notable thing here is that even after changes made by a candidate to their Express Entry profile, it will not change the timestamp of the initial submission of the profile.
