Canada as a country knows the importance of skilled immigrant workers as most of their economy functions as the backbone of the work done by these immigrants. Most immigrants who wish to call Canada their home can do so by applying for immigration to Canada by the Express Entry program of Canada or the various other Nominee Programs which are present in different provinces of Canada. All individuals who show interest in immigrating to Canada in search of work through the Express Entry Program of Canada are given certain points as per the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) based on which individuals who are eligible to immigrate to Canada are chosen.
One of the many criteria based on which points are awarded to individuals by the CRS in the Express Entry System of Canada is the age of the individual. Individuals from different age brackets are given points, the higher the age of the individual the lesser amount of points would be awarded to them. As it happens to be all individuals over the age of 40 will not be awarded any points at all in this specific field of marking. To ensure that individuals over the age of 40 are granted permanent resident status in Canada, the individual will have to make sure that the rest of their application and portfolio are up to the mark so that they do not lose out on points, in any other sector of the Comprehensive Ranking System.
Individuals will be given points out of 1200, an individual getting a score of more than or equal to 450 shall be regarded as a good score and the chances of them receiving a letter of interest from the immigration office of Canada shall be increased manifold. It is not that difficult of a task to attain a score of 450 provided the individual in question has completed their education to a Doctorate degree and has enough work experience in the field of work they wish to apply for in Canada. However, individuals must keep in mind that just getting a good score in CRS is not enough as finalists will always be chosen in the form of a lucky draw through the Express Entry System, individuals whose names have been selected in the lucky draw will then be sent a letter of interest post which they may apply for Permanent Residency in Canada.
Thus, in conclusion, it can be said that getting PR status for individuals over the age of 40 is not an impossible task but, it would help greatly if the individual in question is well distinguished in their respective field of expertise.
