How to calculate CRS Score for express entry?

by Nationwide Visas Canada Immigration Services

The Comprehensive Ranking Mechanism (CRS) is a point-based system for evaluating and ranking your profile in the Express Entry pool.

The Express Entry method is used by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to select candidates for permanent residency. The Federal Skilled Workers (FSW) program, the Federal Skilled Trades (FST) program, and the Canadian Experience Class are all administered through the Express Entry system (CEC). To be eligible for the Express Entry pool of candidates, you must be eligible for one of these programs. After completing an Express Entry profile each candidate is given Canada CRS score. Qualifying candidates are judged on the basis of the Comprehensive Ranking System which determines your chances of obtaining an invitation to apply for permanent residence based on your score and rank in the Express Entry pool.

Following are the programs under the Express Entry:

  •      Canadian Experience Class

The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is one of the quickest ways to obtain permanent residency in Canada, and it is administered through the Express Entry immigration system. While age, language proficiency, and level of education are all factors in determining eligibility for this program, applicants must also show that they have completed at least 12-months of continuous, full-time, skilled work experience in Canada in the previous three years, or an equivalent amount of part-time experience. If an international student has obtained this amount of work experience, CEC may be the simplest immigration option for obtaining a green card.

  •        Federal Skilled Workers Program

The Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) program is also administered through Express Entry and may be a viable alternative for overseas student grads. Unlike the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), the FSWP does not require Canadian work experience, making it a feasible option for overseas student graduates who do not have sufficient work experience in Canada. The Federal Skilled Worker Program is a merit-based immigration scheme that ranks applicants using a points-based system known as the CRS score. For permanent residency, only the most competitive profiles are invited to apply. If an international student meets the eligibility requirements and performs well in the CRS scoring system, FSW can be a great way to gain permanent residency.

  •         Federal Skilled Trades Program

A candidate must have at least two years of full-time work experience in a skilled trade to be eligible for FST (or an equal amount in part-time). This experience must have been earned during the past 5 years, and only work experience obtained after a person has been awarded certification to perform the trade in their country of residence is taken into account.

To qualify for Express Entry candidates are allotted points in the following categories:

  •         Age
  •         level of education
  •         official language proficiency
  •         second official language
  •          Canadian work experience.

There are a total of 1,200 points available under the Comprehensive Ranking System:

  •         a maximum of 500 points available for core human capital factors;
  •          a maximum of 100 points available for skill transferability factors;
  •          600 points are available for either a provincial nomination; or
  •          up to 200 points available for a qualifying offer of arranged employment; and
  •          up to 30 points for Canadian study experience;
  •          up to 50 additional points for French language ability, combined with English language ability; and
  •          a maximum of 15 points for a sibling in Canada.

For candidates who are applying for a spouse visa or common-law partner, there are the following:

  •          a maximum of 460 points available for core human capital factors of the principal applicant;
  •          a maximum of 40 points for the core human capital factors of the spouse or common-law partner;
  •          600 points are available for either a provincial nomination; or
  •          up to 200 points available for a qualifying offer of arranged employment; and
  •          up to 30 points for a Canadian study experience.
  •          up to 50 additional points for French language ability, combined with English language ability; and
  •          a maximum of 15 points for a sibling in Canada (one sibling of the principal applicant and the accompanying spouse/common-law partner is considered).

The average cut-off score for CRS 2022

470 is the average cut-off score. The draws are normally held every two weeks on Wednesdays, however, the IRCC occasionally deviates from this unspoken rule.
