WHAT IF YOU ARE NOT INVITED FOR A PR
In case you are not invited to apply for a PR visa within a period of 6 months of submitting the express entry profile of yours then the profile will automatically expire. The profile will be removed from the system when it expires and you will get a message and a notification in your account.
You are still allowed to create a new profile but you should remember that every year you will be losing 5 to 7 points because of your increasing age and this may reduce your chances for selection and thus it is a good idea to try some other path to immigration
HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR CRS OR COMPREHENSIVE RANKING SCORE
Canada is a beautiful country with a high standard of living and moving to Canada is a great challenge as well as an exciting opportunity. But you must remember that simply being eligible in not you need to be invited to apply.

The better and higher your CRS score the more your chances of receiving an invitation,
So these are some tips which will help you improve your CRS score:
GET ECA FOR SPOUSE
If you take an ECA for your spouse and you are planning to immigrate with him or her then you can get up to 10 extra points and that can be a great differentiator and thus it is a great idea to go for an ECA for your spouse.
IMPROVE YOUR PARTNERS FIRST LANGUAGE
