About Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS)

In 2015, Canada introduced the new Express Entry system for processing applications to most federal economic immigration programs. All three programs under the Express Entry system are highly competitive. Immigration candidates are ranked against one another and only the highest-ranking candidates are selected to become Canadian permanent residents.

The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is the points-based system the government uses to assess and score your profile and rank you in the Express Entry pool. The points you get from the CRS include a core set of points up to 600 and a set of additional points of up to 600. Your total score will be out of 1,200.

Score: Up to 600 points

  1. Skills and experience factors
  2. Spouse or common-law partner factors, such as their language skills and education
  3. Skills transferability, including education and work experience

Additional: Up to 600 points

  1. Canadian degrees, diplomas or certificates
  2. a valid job offer
  3. a nomination from a province or territory
  4. a brother or sister living in Canada who is a citizen or permanent resident
  5. strong French language skills

Core points + Additional points = your total score

If you’d like to see what your score would be when you fill out a profile, use the Comprehensive Ranking System tool.
