Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS)

Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is a point/merit-based system developed by the Canadian government that allots score to the candidates in the Express Entry Pool. This score represents CRS score or CRS points. CRS calculator is used to get CRS score which is used to determine a skilled or a highly-skilled candidate via express entry pool. An average good CRS score lies in the range of 460-480 and the candidate can expect an Invitation To Apply (ITA) if he/she have scored in this range. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) considers majorly 4 factors for allotting points on candidate’s profile which are:-

  • Core Human Capital Factors.
  • Accompanying Partner Factor.
  • Skills Transferability Factor.
  • Additional Factors (Prearranged employment, Provincial Nomination, Post-secondary education in Canada)
