Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS)

What is Comprehensive Ranking?

Comprehensive Ranking System is a ranking score that will help you to check your eligibility for Canada PR through Express Entry Program. A Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score is awarded to every candidate, based on a variety of things like age, level of education, language proficiency, work expertise, etc.  Beware that calculation of your CRS points doesn’t mean you’re eligible for one of the programs of Express Entry. You will need to cross-check your eligibility for one of the programs before. You can check the eligibility of each federal program below:

The applicant will be evaluated based on a maximum score of 1200 points under the CRS and the one who scores the maximum will be shortlisted for further interview.

The province will also consider the intent of the applicant who is willing to settle in the respective province of Canada and actively contribute to the economic development of the respective province through their profession. A valid job offer or a prior obtained provincial residential status would certainly be an added advantage to the applying candidate.

Let us consider for example that if a candidate applies for a managerial position then they would obtain 200 points maximum and the remaining technical or executive level jobs can obtain an extent of 50 points. Whereas the provincial nomination process would automatically generate 600 points for the applicant, having a provincial nomination would assure the applicant with a permanent residence as well.

To be ready to recognize your precise CRS score, you need to have your Language Scorecard, and your Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) if your degree isn’t Canadian. If you do not have these, you can still try and see how many CRS points you’ll be able to claim for alternative factors.

What’s the minimum CRS score?

To become a permanent resident of Canada through the Express Entry system, you will need to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from IRCC. You will only receive an ITA if your CRS score is above or equal to the minimum CRS score set in a draw. A draw is a mechanism used by IRCC in which they select Express Entry applicants whose CRS scores are above a threshold that they set at each draw. Draws usually take place on Wednesdays every two weeks, but IRCC does deviate from this unspoken rule.

Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA)

The applicant will be evaluated based on a maximum score of 1200 points under the CRS and the one who scores the maximum will be shortlisted for further interview.

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) are an immigration option to consider when not having enough CRS points. Indeed, when selected by a province to receive a provincial nomination, you will receive an additional 600 points, which will automatically get you an ITA in the next draw. However, when you obtain your permanent residence with a provincial nomination, you will need to stay in the province (more detailed information on the subject here).

Most provinces have immigration streams that are aligned with Express Entry; however, each province and each stream have its own eligibility criteria. You can use our Canada CRS Calculator to find out if you could be eligible, and you should also check out our PNP Live Monitor for the latest updates on each stream of the PNPs.

How’s the CRS score calculated?

Express Entry candidates are given a score out of 1,200 based on the four major sections:

A. Core / human capital factors: these include points for Age, Education, Canadian Work Experience, and Language proficiency. These are considered the key to economic success for immigrants.

B. Spouse or common-law partner factors: these include the accompanying spouse or common-law partner’s Language proficiency, Education, and Canadian Work Experience.

C. Skills transferability: this section provides additional points to your profile that is based on a combination of factors, e.g a combination of your Education, Language proficiency, and/or Non-Canadian Work Experience.

D. Additional points: This section awards 600 additional points for a Provincial nomination, and other additional points for a valid job offer, etc.

Furthermore, your Canada PR eligibility is highly based on your profile. Out of 100 points, one has secured 67 points to get their profile eligible for the Canada PR Visa. The validity of the PR application is calculated through a point-based system based on the 6 factors:

  1. Age
  2. Education
  3. Experience
  4. Language Skills
  5. Job Offer
  6. Adaptability

In this category, the immigrant can get the maximum points up to 12 points. The calculation is done from the day you have submitted your profile.
