Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score
The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score is a points-based system used by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to evaluate and rank candidates who apply for immigration through the Express Entry system. The CRS score is based on various factors such as age, education, work experience, language proficiency in English and French, arranged employment in Canada, and adaptability factors. Candidates are awarded points based on these factors, and those with the highest CRS scores are invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada through regular draws conducted by IRCC.
The CRS score cutoff varies with each draw, depending on factors such as the number of candidates in the pool and the specific requirements of the draw. Candidates who meet or exceed the CRS score cutoff in a draw may receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in Canada.
