Check Your Eligibility

Choose the best answer:

  • If you’ve been invited to apply, enter your age on the date you were invited.

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)

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 the training, education, experience and responsibilities (TEER) needed to work in the job.

"Skilled work" in the NOC is TEER 0, 1, 2 or 3 category jobs:

If you aren’t sure of the NOC TEER category 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.

Whether an offer is valid or not also depends on different factors, depending on your case. See a full list of criteria for valid job offers.

Note: to answer yes, the brother or sister must be:

  • 18 years old or older
  • related to you or your partner by blood, marriage, common-law partnership or adoption

  • adoption
  • marriage (step-brother or step-sister)
  • earned a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate; or
  • had an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA)? (ECAs must be from an approved agency, in the last five years)

To get the correct number of points, make sure you choose the answer that best reflects your case. For example:

If you have TWO Bachelor’s degrees, or one Bachelor’s AND a two year college diploma, choose – “Two or more certificates, diplomas, or degrees. One must be for a program of three or more years.”

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

Test results must be less than two years old.

Ways to improve points in CRS Score Calculator

Get an LMIA Approved job offer

If you get a valid job offer from a Canadian employer, you can receive an additional 200 points to your final CRS score. But, your job offer must be LMIA (Labor Market Impact Assessment) approved. While it isn't easy to find a job in Canada, it is also not impossible.

Study experience in Canada

There were a total of 807,750 study permit holders in higher education by 2022 year-end. The Canadian education system has for a long time - proven to be the best among the study-abroad destinations in the world.

Many newcomers choose to apply for a Post-Graduate Work Permit (PGWP) after studying in Canada for a while, which lets them gain Canadian work experience - which is a stepping stone for Canada PR. 

Include Common-Law Partner/ Spouse

Immigrating to Canada your Common-law Partner or Spouse in the application will fetch you extra points. The language proficiency of the Common-law Partner or Spouse can get a maximum of 20 points, while their work experience and education in Canada will fetch them 10 additional points individually. In total, you can add a maximum of 40 extra points to your final CRS score.

Work experience in Canada

You can add a maximum of 150 points to your CRS score if you have documented full-time work experience in Canada and abroad. This will be points for foreign work experience + Canadian work experience. Check out the Canada occupation in-demand list 2024 to find a job that best matches your work experience.

Frequently Asked Question

  • What if my CRS score is below 400 points?

    Other than the Express entry program, there is a provincial nomination program (PNP) that can provide you another immigration pathway to Canada PR Visa with a low CRS score. Many PNPs programs require a low CRS score to be eligible like SINP - Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program, etc. Also, the AIPP - Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program provides another immigration pathway to Canada PR Visa with a CRS score of fewer than 400 points.


  • The Provincial Nominee Program - PNP is a path that can get you to Canada even with a low CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score. Recently, Alberta invited migrants with a CRS as low as 300. Canadas PNP target is expected to increase to 67,800 in 2020 and 71,300 in 2021.

  • Looking at the recent all program Express Entry draws, the CRS score cut-off has been between 470 to 475 CRS points. For now, the good CRS score is to score around 470 points, this can ensure you get an ITA to apply for a Canada PR Visa.

  • With the CRS score, express entry ranks the profiles in the express entry pool. Higher ranked profiles are for immigrants with high-demanding skills and higher work experience. To target only those immigrants with high skill-sets, IRCC mainly invites those to express entry profiles with a higher CRS score, thus increasing the CRS score cut-off. But these profiles are in limited numbers, and to meet the admission targets for new immigrants, the CRS score for Canada PR Visa is bound to decrease.

  • NOC codes affect your CRS scores in two ways:

    • To get the CRS points for work experience, you need to have required work experience in NOC skill level 0, A or B.
    • Second, you can also get extra CRS points depending on the NOC level of your job offered in your job offer letter. For example, for a NOC 00 level job you get extra 200 CRS points.
