Comprehensive Ranking System

Comprehensive Ranking System

Canada’s Express Entry Selection System uses the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) for ranking skilled worker candidates. Every eligible candidate is awarded a score by considering factors like education, work experience, and language skills. An expert immigration consultant can help you create a perfect profile for Express Entry selection by offering valuable advice to boost your score.

How does CRS work?

The Comprehensive Ranking System aims at evaluating every applicant by assigning specific points to several criteria. The Express Entry Draw dynamically selects top-ranking candidates who will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for the Permanent Residency.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Canada (IRCC) conducts these draws regularly. You can score the maximum possible points to improve your chances of receiving ITA since the CRS for Express Entry selection is a competitive system.
