Comprehensive Ranking System Score

In Express Entry, skilled worker candidates are ranked based on their Comprehensive Ranking System score. The primary method through which the Canadian government accepts immigrants from the middle class is through the Express Entry system, which is managed by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

An applicant must fulfil eligibility requirements for each of the Express Entry programs before they are qualified to apply. The CRS will award the candidate with a grade if they are qualified. The score is determined by a number of factors, including age, education, language proficiency, and work experience. Under the CRS, a total of 1,200 points are available. The system includes:

  • Core Human Capital Factors
  • Skills Transferability Factors
  • Additional Factors

Candidates without a spouse or common-law partner are eligible for

  • At least 500 points for core human capital factors;
  • 100 points available for skill transferability factors;
  • A maximum of 600 points for additional factors

Candidates with a spouse or common-law partner are qualified for

  • 460 points for core human capital factors (Main applicant)
  • The spouse or common-law partner receives 40 points for the core human capital factors;
  • At least 100 points for skill transferability factors; and
  • 600 points for additional factors.

Moreover, if an applicant has a sibling living in Canada who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, they may receive bonus points for their proficiency in French.

Here’re The Top Ways to Improve Your CRS Score

  • When combined with other characteristics, language is a significant element that can be worth up to 310 CRS points, and up to 320 if the applicant is married or in a common-law relationship.
  • Gaining educational qualifications also can be worth up to 250 CRS points, a common way to improve a CRS score.
  • Additionally, a CRS score can be increased by gaining more work experience or by bettering current experience.
  • Candidates for Express Entry who have been recommended for permanent residence by a Canadian province may receive an extra 600 points toward their CRS score.
