Since there are so many applicants entering the pool each year, the competition to be nominated by the Canadian province becomes very intense every year.
It is no longer news that you must acquire a high Comprehensive Ranking Score to be eligible for a nomination.
Many of the applicants who do not receive an invitation to apply will have to try again if the desire is still there. if you are going to apply again or it’s your first, you must make the same mistakes over and over again.
