Comprehensive Ranking System
Canada’s Express Entry Selection System employs the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) to rank skilled worker candidates. Each eligible candidate receives a score based on factors including education, work experience, and language proficiency. An experienced immigration consultant can assist you in crafting an optimal Express Entry profile, providing valuable insights to enhance your score.
What is the functioning of the CRS?
The goal of the Comprehensive Ranking System is to assess each applicant by assigning points to various criteria. Through Express Entry Draws, candidates with high scores are dynamically chosen to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Permanent Residency.
Regularly conducted by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), these draws play a crucial role. To enhance your likelihood of obtaining an Invitation to Apply (ITA), striving for the highest possible CRS points is essential, given the competitive nature of the Express Entry selection system.
