Choose the best answer:

  • If you’ve been invited to apply, enter your age on the date you were invited.
    OR
  • 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 institutes 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

5) Official languages: Canada’s official languages are English and French.

You need to submit language test results that are less than two years old for all programs under Express Entry, even if English or French is your first language.

6) Work Experience

It must have been paid and full-time (or an equal amount of 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)

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 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.

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

Note: to answer yes, the brother or sister must be:

  • 18 years old or older
  • related to you or your partner by blood, marriage, common-law partnership, or adoption
  • have a parent in common with you or your partner

A brother or sister is related to you by:

  • blood (biological)
  • adoption
  • marriage (step-brother or step-sister)
  • earned a Canadian degree, diploma, or certificate; or
  • had an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA)? (ECAs must be from an approved agency, in the last five years)

To get the correct number of points, make sure you choose the answer that best reflects your case. For example:

If you have TWO Bachelor’s degrees, or one Bachelor’s AND a two-year college diploma, choose – “Two or more certificates, diplomas, or degrees. One must be for a program of three or more years.”

It must have been paid, full-time (or an equal amount part-time), and in one or more NOC 0, A, or B jobs.

Test results must be less than two years old.

    What is a good CRS score today?

    What is a good CRS score to receive an ITA has really changed from 2018. Where once a score of 450 would be considered optimal, it is not the case today. Now, a good CRS score would be close to 470 – if you are looking to receive an ITA in the next round. However, applicants with CRS of 460 and over also have a very good chance.

     How are CRS points calculated?

    The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) contains three factors:

    • Core Human Capital Factors
    • Skill Transferability Factors
    • Additional Factors relating to a provincial nomination, a qualifying offer of arranged employment, Canadian study experience, a sibling in Canada, and/or French language ability.

    There is a total of 1,200 points available under the Comprehensive Ranking System.

    For candidates without an accompanying spouse or common-law partner, there are:

    A maximum of 500 points available for core human capital factors;

    A maximum of 100 points available for skill transferability factors; and

    600 points available for additional factors (including a provincial nomination, an offer of arranged employment, Canadian study experience, a sibling in Canada, and/or French language ability).

    For candidates with an accompanying spouse or common-law partner, there are:

    A maximum of 460 points available for core human capital factors of the principal applicant;

    A maximum of 40 points for the core human capital factors of the spouse or common-law partner;

    A maximum of 100 points available for skill transferability factors; and

    600 points available for additional factors (including a provincial nomination, an offer of arranged employment, Canadian study experience, a sibling in Canada, and/or French language ability).

    French ability

    25 additional points for French-speaking candidates who prove adequate intermediate (equivalent to Canadian Language Benchmark 7) or better French ability, and English language test results of CLB 4 or lower, or no English test results at all.

    50 additional points for French-speaking candidates who prove adequate intermediate or better French ability, and who also prove English language test result of CLB 5 or better.

    Sibling in Canada

    15 additional points for candidates with a sibling in Canada who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of at least 18 years of age. These points may also be awarded if the candidate’s spouse or common-law partner has a sibling in Canada. The candidate or his or her spouse/common-law partner must share a mother and/or father with the sibling in Canada. This relationship can be through blood, adoption, marriage, or common-law partnership.

    What are the significant factors that affect the CRS score?

    Comprehensive Ranking System is the second step any applicant needs to clear to be eligible for Canada PR. The first step is the 67 point calculator, which defines scores to candidates based on six factors stated below:

    • Age (max 12 points)
    • Education (max 25 points)
    • Work Experience (maximum 15 points)
    • Language Proficiency(top 28 points)
    • Arranged Employment (top 10 points)
    • Adaptability (maximum 10 points)

     The points scored in this point calculator directly or indirectly affect the CRS point calculator scores as the significant points granted to any individual in the CRS calculator is based on these six criteria themselves.
