Check Your Eligibility

  • If you’ve been invited to apply, enter your age on the date you were invited.
  • If you plan to complete an Express Entry profile, enter your current age.

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)
  • you had to be enrolled full time for at least eight months, and have been physically present in Canada for at least eight months

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 skill type, group and level.

'Skilled work' in the NOC is:

  • managerial jobs (NOC Skill Level 0)
  • professional jobs (NOC Skill Type A)
  • technical jobs and skilled trades/manual work (NOC Skill Type B)

If you aren’t sure of the NOC level 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.

You can use our online tool to find out if you don’t know.

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.

Your CRS Score

All Express Entry candidates get a score out of 1,200, based on the four parts of the Comprehensive Ranking System formula.

We invite the highest-ranking candidates from the pool to apply as a permanent resident through regular “rounds of invitations.” See what minimum scores have been in the past.


What is the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS)?

The Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS) is like a points system for applicants who want to move to Canada via Express Entry program. You gather points primarily based on such things as your age, education, how nicely you speak English or French, your work experience, whether or not you studied in Canada, and if a Canadian province desires to nominate you.

The greater points you acquire, the better your probabilities of having an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residency. The max score you may get is 1,200.

The IRCC regularly holds draws where they invite applicants with the best scores to apply for Canada PR. So, having a high CRS score is extraordinary crucial if you need to move to Canada. Just keep in mind that the score requirements can change with every draw, so that you would possibly need to work on improving your profile to increase your chances of getting an ITA.

You can use this tool if:

  • You are eligible for at least one of the Express Entry Programs.
  • You have not registered for the Express Entry Program and would like to know your CRS result.
  • You have received an invitation to apply for a PR visa and want to check whether a change to the Express Entry Profile may affect your CRS score.
  • You want to check if your CRS score in the last invitation round is above the minimum required score.

The CRS Points Calculator allows Canadian PR visa applicants to determine their CRS score as part of the Express Entry program. The CRS calculator asks applicants a series of questions related to the selection factors for the Express Entry program.

These selection factors assessed the applicants on the basis of:

  • Age
  • Education
  • Language Ability
  • Work Experience
  • Adaptability

How are the CRS points calculated with the Calculator tool?

As mentioned above, there are factors by which Express Entry candidates receive CRS points. Factors – Core Human Capital + Spouse/Life Partner + Transferability of Qualifications = 600 CRS points. Additional factors (provincial nomination, French language proficiency) = 600 CRS points. The maximum CRS score an applicant can receive is 1200 points.

What are the Ways to Improve CRS Score?

Due to the higher CRS requirements, many of the express entry profiles are not able to fulfil these requirements. To increase their chances of obtaining an ITA, Express Entry candidates must improve their CRS score. We have categorised the factors according to the time required to process them – fast methods and slow methods:

Fast methods to improve the CRS score in 2024 are as follows-

  • Language proficiency is one of the factors based on which CRS points are awarded. If the candidate is able to score higher in language tests like IELTS etc, they can improve their CRS score.
  • Spouse Factors: Candidate who is applying with their spouse/common-law partner can get extra points for their qualifications.

Slow methods for improving CRS score are as follows:

  • Provincial Nomination: The major way of improving the CRS score is getting a provincial nomination certificate. It gives a boost of 600 CRS points to the express profile.
