The Comprehensive Ranking System is used by the Canadian Government or IRCC department (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada). It is a merit-based points system which is used to assess the profile of immigration candidates sent via Express Entry pool. The score is evaluated and assigned to each candidate on the basis of certain factors in order to rank them for seamless immigration process.
If you are planning to apply for Canadian permanent residence, it is pivotal to calculate your points in CRS. Every fortnight, the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) launches a draw to select candidates with highest points in CRS. The IRCC releases the minimum points required for every draw which makes it necessary for the candidates to be familiar with their CRS points. Subsequently, the highest scoring candidates are invited to further apply for Canadian PR.
The CRS calculator is a unique tool that helps in estimating the comprehensive ranking system score for Express Entry Immigration System. Anyone eligible for one of the Express Entry Programs or haven’t registered themselves for Express Entry system, can use this tool to estimate their score. Moreover, if anyone has already applied for Canadian PR but wish to make changes in their profile to the factors that could improve their score can also use this tool.
