Canada Points Calculator

Selection factor points are used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to determine the eligibility of a skilled foreign worker for applying through the Express Entry system.

Launched in 2015, Canada’s Express Entry is an online application management system used for managing permanent residence applications from skilled workers.

Six human capital factors are assessed to come up with the Canada Skilled Immigration Points calculation. 67 points or above will have to be scored by an individual for being eligible to apply for Canada PR visa through Express Entry.

Once the profile is in the Express Entry pool of Canada immigration hopefuls, another score — allotted following assessment on the 1,200-point Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) matrix – comes into play. This is referred to as the CRS score of the individual.

While the eligibility calculation determines whether you can make your IRCC Express Entry profile, it is your CRS score that will decide if you can submit your application for permanent residence.

Applying for Canada PR is by invitation-only. While you might create your IRCC Express Entry profile, you cannot apply unless specifically invited by IRCC to do so.

Here, we shall be seeing the factors that are assessed for the 67-point skilled immigration points calculation to migrate to Canada through the Express Entry system.

FACTORS TO DETERMINE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR CANADA IMMIGRATION THROUGH EXPRESS ENTRY

Factors assessed for the skilled immigration eligibility calculation are – age, education, language proficiency, job offer from a Canadian employer, work experience, and adaptability.

The skilled immigration eligibility calculator is also referred to as simply the Canada Points Calculator.

By ‘adaptability’ is implied as to how likely is the individual to successfully settle in Canada with their family.

WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR CRS SCORE

The Express Entry draw is conducted at regular intervals, so there is always a chance for you to improve your CRS score before you apply for a subsequent Express Entry draw.

If you do not meet the required CRS score you can always find ways to improve your points so that you get the required points to secure an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for the PR visa in the next Express Entry draw.

Here are some ways to improve your CRS score –

BOOST YOUR LANGUAGE SCORE:

If you score well in language tests such as the IELTS, your CRS score will improve. For example, in the language test, if you score a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of 9, you’ll get up to 136 direct points added to your CRS ranking. Appearing for a language test in French can also add up to 72 points.

PROVINCIAL NOMINEE PROGRAM:

If you receive an invitation, you will receive 600 additional points for your Express Entry profile.

GET A WORK OFFER [LMIA Approved]:

If you receive a work offer recognized by the Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from an employer in Canada, you can add up to 200 points to your CRS ranking.

GET EDUCATION IN CANADA:

Up to 30 extra points can be received if you complete a recognized degree or diploma in Canada.

DEPENDENT INCLUDED IN THE APPLICATION [Spouse/Common-Law Partner]:

Applying with your spouse for the Canada PR visa will earn you both additional points. The language proficiency of your spouse would be worth 20 points, while the education level and Canadian work experience can earn you as much as 10 points for each category. So, this will add up to 40 points to your CRS score.

CANADIAN WORK EXPERIENCE:

If you have fewer than three years of full-time work experience and if you continue to work you can add maximum 150 points to your CRS score.
