What’s a CRS score?

The candidates who have got shortlisted under the Express Entry Pool will be ranked based on CRS parameter, where it evaluates an applicant’s eligibility based on several influencing factors like



Work Experience

Language Proficiency

Demand for Job

Province’s regulations

Federal regulations for the concerned job

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.

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

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 calculative 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

Federal Skilled Worker Program
Federal Skilled Trader Program
Canadian Experience Class

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.
You can use our CRS Calculator Tool below to calculate your CRS Score

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.
To check on the latest draw threshold score and see what were the historic draw scores from 2015 till today, use this page.

How to increase your score with a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)?

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 has its own eligibility criteria. You can use our PNP Eligibility Tool 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 as 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..
