What is a CRS Score in the Express Entry System?

The Express Entry system follows a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). It is a point-based system that helps you to check if your profile is eligible for Canada Immigration. However, with the help of these points, IRCC issues an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for a Canada PR visa.


What are the CRS factors to calculate your points?

CRS points:

  1. Age (Max 12 points)
  2. Education (Max 25 points)
  3. Language Skills (English/French) [Max 24 (1st official language) + 4 points (2nd official language]
  4. Adaptability (15 points)
  5. Work Experience (Max 15 points)
  6. Job Offer Letter (Max 10 points)


To qualify for Express Entry, you need to get a minimum CRS score of 67 points out of 100.

Canada selects high scoring profiles from its regular draws. And these draws have profiles from all 3 streams under the EE System. There is a minimum of 6 months for processing EE profiles. If IRCC selects your profile, then you will receive an ITA.

Further, you must apply to Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for getting a permanent residence visa.
