  • Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) tool

    Choose the best answer:

    • If you've been invited to apply, enter your age on the date you were invited.
      OR
    • If you plan to complete an Express Entry profile, enter your current age.

    Enter the highest level of education for which you:

    • earned a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate or
    • had an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) if you did your study outside Canada. (ECAs must be from an approved agency, in the last five years)

    Note: a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate must either have been earned at an accredited Canadian university, college, trade or technical school, or other institute in Canada. Distance learning counts for education points, but not for bonus points in your profile or application.

    Note: to answer yes:

    • English or French as a Second Language must not have made up more than half your study
    • you must not have studied under an award that required you to return to your home country after graduation to apply your skills and knowledge
    • you must have studied at a school within Canada (foreign campuses don't count)
    • you had to be enrolled full time for at least eight months, and have been physically present in Canada for at least eight months

    5) Official languages: Canada's official languages are English and French.

    You need to submit language test results that are less than two years old for all programs under Express Entry, even if English or French is your first language.

    Enter your test scores:

    If so, which language test did you take for your second official language?

    Test results must be less than two years old.

    6) Work Experience

    It must have been paid and full-time (or an equal amount in part-time).

    Note: In Canada, the National Occupational Classification (NOC) is the official list of all the jobs in the Canadian labour market. It describes each job according to skill type, group and level.

    "Skilled work" in the NOC is:

    • managerial jobs (NOC Skill Level 0)
    • professional jobs (NOC Skill Type A)
    • technical jobs and skilled trades/manual work (NOC Skill Type B)

    If you aren't sure of the NOC level for this job, you can find your NOC.

    It must have been paid, full-time (or an equal amount in part-time), and in only one occupation (NOC skill type 0, A or B).

    Note: A certificate of qualification lets people work in some skilled trades in Canada. Only the provinces, territories and a federal body can issue these certificates. To get one, a person must have them assess their training, trade experience and skills to and then pass a certification exam.

    People usually have to go to the province or territory to be assessed. They may also need experience and training from an employer in Canada.

    This isn't the same as a nomination from a province or territory.

    Additional Points

    A valid job offer must be

    • full-time
    • in a skilled job listed as Skill Type 0, or Skill Level A or B in the 2011 National Occupational Classification
    • supported by a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or exempt from needing one
    • for one year from the time you become a permanent resident

    A job offer isn't valid if your employer is:

    • an embassy, high commission or consulate in Canada or
    • on the list of ineligible employers.

  • What is Express Entry?

    Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) uses the Express Entry system to select the desired candidates to apply for permanent residence.

    Three federal programs go through the Express Entry system: the Federal Skilled Workers (FSW) program, the Federal Skilled Trades (FST) program, and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC). You need to be eligible to one of these programs to be able to enter the Express Entry pool of candidates, where each candidate is assigned a CRS score.

    The Express Entry system is a fast-track system for immigration for highly skilled workers and students. The skills and abilities of a candidate are assessed based on a point system known as the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Canada CRS assesses the applicants and awards scores. The system aims to identify and give permanent residency status to applicants that demonstrate the ability to contribute to the innovative growth and economic prosperity of Canada. It is an electronic process that uses point-based system to choose the deserving candidates.

    According to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (CIC), candidates selected under the Express Entry Program are skilled workers who possess the ability to contribute to the development of Canada’s economy.

    In order to get into the Express Entry pool, the applicant needs to meet the requirements of one of these programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, or the Canadian Experience Class.

    What is a CRS score?

    A Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score is assigned to each candidate, depending on several factors, including age, level of education, language proficiency, work experience, etc.

    Beware that calculating your CRS points does not mean you are eligible to one of the three programs of Express Entry. You will need to make sure you are eligible to one of the three programs before. You see the eligibility criteria of each federal program here.

    To be able to know your exact CRS score, you will need to have your language test results, and your Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) if your degree is not Canadian. If you do not have these, you can still try and see how many CRS points you can claim for other factors.

    The Comprehensive Ranking System assesses the skills of the applicant based on six factors to determine the eligibility of the applicant for the Express Entry Visa:

    Education
    Language
    Experience
    Age
    Arranged Employment
    Adaptability

    The CRS ranks eligible candidates for immigration to Canada through Express Entry under the following components:

    Core human capital factors;

    Accompanying spouse or common-law factors;

    Skill transferability factors; and

    Factors relating to a provincial nomination, a qualifying offer of arranged employment, Canadian study experience, a sibling in Canada, and/or French language ability.

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

    For candidates without an accompanying spouse or common-law partner, there are:

    a maximum of 500 points available for core human capital factors;
    a maximum of 100 points available for skill transferability factors;
    600 points 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 30 additional points for French language ability, combined with English language ability; and
    a maximum of 15 points for a sibling in Canada.

    For candidates with an accompanying spouse or common-law partner, there are:

    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 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 30 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 highest scoring applications receive an invitation to apply for a Canada PR visa.
