What is a CRS Score?

The CRS or Comprehensive Ranking System is a points-based system that assigns a particular score to every profile. The score is used to shortlist profiles as per the rank in the Express Entry pool. The CRS Calculator generates your score based on the pre-set parameters and calculates your CRS score.

You can find your estimated CRS score with this score calculator and check if you are eligible for a Canada PR Visa (Canadian Permanent Residency visa) through the Express Entry Program. Anyone planning to immigrate to Canada can be sure of their endeavour by checking the CRS score with this CRS calculator.


Broad Factors in CRS Calculation

  • Core/human capital factors
  • Spouse or common-law partner factor
  • Skill transferability factor
  • Additional factors


The score is calculated from a maximum of 1200 points in the CRS point-based system. The sum of CRS points awarded to a candidate per various factors is their CRS score. From the factors described above, ‘core/human capital factors’ is the most important category. The below-mentioned details are considered for evaluation:

  • Age
  • Level of education
  • Official language proficiency (English and French)
  • Work experience


Out of 1200, a sum of 500 points is assigned for ‘core/human capital’ and ‘spouse or common-law partner’ factors. Moreover, you can earn a maximum of 100 CRS points for the ‘skill transferability factor’ and a total of 600 CRS points for ‘Additional factors’.

How does the CRS calculator help you?

The CRS calculator helps Canadian immigration aspirants by telling them an estimated score. You can check your eligibility points for one of the three economic immigration programs managed by the Federal Government of Canada through the Express Entry System. To apply to the express entry pool, you have to be eligible for one of these three programs. The three programs are:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)


What should eligible candidates do to migrate to Canada?

The candidates who are eligible and meet the cut-off need to ensure their profile is in the Express Entry Pool. The government of Canada holds the Express Entry draws in which IRCC issues an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada PR visa to the candidates who have the minimum required CRS cut-off score which is decided by the IRCC.
The candidates ranking among the top in this list get an ITA for a Canada PR Visa. If you are one of those candidates, you'll receive an ITA and will have 60 days to submit your completed application to IRCC for a Canada PR visa. Once the IRCC officials are satisfied with your profile information, they will issue a Canada PR visa to you and your dependents moving to Canada with you. This process generally takes around 8-10 months.


How to Improve Your CRS Score?

In such a case, you can try to increase your CRS score by trying one of the following things:

graduation-iconGet nomination for a Canada PR visa under a provincial nominee program (PNP)

experience-iconSecure a job offer from a Canadian employer

age-iconAttain higher language score by retaking language tests

English-iconAdd to your work experience


Notably, a PNP nomination will help you earn 600 CRS points which will effectively guarantee you an ITA for a Canada PR visa. Besides, you can still increase your CRS score if your profile is already present in the Express Entry pool. This can give you a chance to stand out and get invited to apply for a Canada PR visa in a subsequent draw. One important detail you must know is that an Express Entry profile is valid for 12 months. So, if you do not receive an ITA within 12 months, your Express Entry profile will expire and you will need to create a new one.
