Express Entry CRS Score Calculator

Your Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score is used to rank you amongst hundreds of thousands of people who wait in the Express Entry pool for an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Permanent Residency. There is no minimum CRS score needed to enter the Express Entry Pool. All you need is to be eligible for one of the 3 immigration programs that use Express Entry; Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), and Federal Skilled Trades (FST). If you are not sure if you are eligible, use our eligibility analyzer. However, because Express Entry is a points-based system, a higher CRS score means a higher chance to immigrate to Canada. If you are eligible for Express Entry, calculating and understanding your CRS score will help you successfully prepare for Canadian immigration.

How is CRS Score Calculated for Express Entry?

The CRS score calculation criteria are provided on the Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website. IRCC uses these criteria to invite immigrants with the highest chance of successfully integrating into Canadian society. It considers various factors such as your education, work experience, language ability, etc. Our Express Entry CRS Score Calculator considers all of these factors to generate your CRS score.

The maximum CRS score you can receive through Express Entry is 1,200. Scores are broken down by 4 major categories:
