Comprehensive Ranking System: What is it?


The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is a point-based system to assess your profile and rank it in the Express Entry pool.

Points are allotted to the following categories: 

  • age 
  • level of education
  • official language proficiency
  • second official language
  • Canadian work experience.

The CRS system is used to identify highly skilled candidates from the Express Entry pool . They are then invited to apply for permanent residence by the Canadian government. 

CRS considers 4 different factors to allot points on your profile.

  • Core or Human Capital Factor 
  • Spouse or common-in-law factor
  • Skill Transferability Factor 
  • Additional Factors 

Cut-off score for CRS in 2024

The average cut-off score is 470. A CRS draw is a mechanism used by IRCC, in which they select Express Entry applicants whose CRS scores are above a threshold that they set at each draw. Draws usually take place on Wednesdays every two weeks, but IRCC sometimes deviates from this unspoken rule.

Increasing your CRS score through the Provincials Nominee Program (PNP)

You can increase the CRS score by 600 points through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) by applying to any of the PNPs. You must first check out the eligibility criteria. Also, to get the provincial nomination, you must have an express entry account.

If you are eligible to apply for multiple Express Entry programs, you will be invited to apply for one program based on this order:

  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)

Over the recent years, provinces have been using their Express Entry-aligned (‘enhanced’) PNP streams in innovative, dynamic ways. 

  • Ontario has targeted specific occupation groups, notably in the Information Technology (IT) sector; 
  • Nova Scotia and Saskatchewan have both reopened PNP streams for candidates across a range of occupations (no job offer required); 
  • British Columbia continues to invite candidates to apply under its unique system; 
  • Alberta and Manitoba have entirely new Express Entry-aligned streams; and 
  • Other provinces have gotten on board, issuing nomination certificates to candidates in the Express Entry pool.

 Having a good CRS score allows the Canadian governing bodies to be able to consider your application for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for the PR visa.
