There is no one-size-fits-all type of profile, which is eligible for a Canada PR in an all-program Express Entry draw.

Candidates applying under any of the Express Entry linked Canada PR pathways are ranked using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Factors that influence your CRS score include Age, Language Proficiency, Education, Work Experience, Spousal Sponsorship, Provincial Nomination, Siblings in Canada, and Adaptability.

Those with the highest scores in the CRS points calculator are more likely to receive an invitation to apply for Canada PR.
