CRS Score Criteria

If you’re considering immigrating to Canada and applying for permanent residency through the Express Entry system, you’ll undoubtedly come across the term “CRS score.” The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is a crucial aspect of the Canadian immigration process, as it determines your eligibility and ranking in the pool of potential candidates. In this page, we’ll break down what the CRS score is, how it’s calculated, and how it impacts your chances of obtaining a Canadian PR visa.

What is the CRS Score?

The CRS score is a points-based system used by the Canadian government to evaluate and rank candidates who apply for permanent residency through the Express Entry system. It’s designed to assess the potential economic success of candidates in Canada. The higher your CRS score, the better your chances of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency.
