Understanding the Canada Immigration Points Calculator Selection Factors

by Visa Experts Immigration Consultants | PR Visa Agent

In order to become a permanent resident of Canada by applying under the Express Entry System, foreign skilled workers need to fulfill several eligibility requirements, and score sufficient points on the Canada immigration points calculator. The eligibility requirements vary depending upon which category the candidate applies under, but the point system is uniformly applicable to candidates under all categories.

Candidates who submit Expressions of Interest for any of the three federal Express Entry categories are allocated points out of 1200 based on the selection factors of the Comprehensive Ranking System. They are ranked based on their point score. Through regular draws, the highest-scoring candidates are issued invitations to apply for permanent residence. Only those who meet the minimum point requirement or ‘cut-off’ receive invitations. The cut-off changes with every draw. 

Points are assigned based on the following factors:

Human Capital Factors – Maximum 460 points (for those applying with an accompanying spouse/common-law-partner) or 500 points (for those applying without an accompanying spouse/common-law-partner)

·        Age: Younger applicants are more highly preferred as they will be able to actively participate in the workforce, for a longer duration.

·         Level of Education: Points are awarded for the highest academic qualification achieved by an applicant.

·        English and/or French language Skills: Candidates can claim points based on their score in each test component of an approved language proficiency examination.

·        Canadian Work Experience: Work experience gained within Canada is not mandatory, but adds a significant number of points.

Spouse/Common-law-Partner Factors – Maximum 40 points

The education, English/French language skills and Canadian work experience of an accompanying spouse/common-law-partner (if any) can be used to gain points.

Skill Transferability Factors – Maximum 100 points

The English/French language skills and Canadian work experience (if any) of the primary applicant are considered in combination with their post-secondary academic qualification and work experience obtained outside Canada, or certificate of trade qualification, to determine the value of the Canada PR visa applicant’s skill set in the Canadian job market.

Additional Factors – Maximum 600 points

Satisfying any of the following parameters can provide a major boost to the point score:

·        Having a sibling who is a Canadian citizen/permanent resident

·        Showcasing adequate French language skills

·        Competing a post-secondary academic qualification from an institution in Canada

·        Procuring a valid job offer from a Canadian employer

·        Obtaining a provincial nomination

The Canada immigration points calculator serves as an impartial tool that evaluates the potential of foreign skilled workers, and selects the most qualified candidates according to criteria set by the federal government.
