The procedure to apply

You are qualified to create an online express entrance profile if you obtained a score of 67 and fulfilled the pre-requisites for Federal Skilled Workers Program. After being submitted, your EOI (Expression of Interest) profile is integrated with the profiles of the other candidates in the express entry pool. The CRS (Comprehensive rating System) is a rating system used by the expedited entrance program that evaluates applicants' profiles based on a number of criteria and assigns points accordingly. Invites are delivered to the pool's top-ranked profiles via routine express entry drawings. Following receipt of an ITA (Invitation to Apply), you have 60 days to submit your PR Visa application to IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) together with the required supporting materials.


The CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) score is used by the Canadian government to evaluate and rank the profiles of candidates for the Express Entry system, which is the main pathway for skilled workers to immigrate to Canada. The CRS score is calculated based on several core and additional elements, including:

Core Elements:

1. Age

2. Level of education

3. Language proficiency (in English and/or French)

4. Work experience in Canada or abroad

Additional Elements: 1. Canadian study experience

2. Spouse or common-law partner's education level and language proficiency

3. Job offer in Canada

4. Provincial Nomination (PN) or an offer of a valid job from a Canadian employer Each of these elements is assigned a specific number of points, and the total score is used to rank the candidates in the Express Entry pool. Candidates with the highest scores are invited to apply for permanent residency in Canada.

IRCC distributes ITAs through routine express entry draws. For each express entry draw, the IRCC establishes the CRS score cut-off, and only those profiles that fulfil the minimal CRS score requirements are invited.

You can calculate your CRS score and the possibility that you will be granted an ITA in the most recent invitational rounds by using the calculator for Canada immigration points.

4. Provincial nomination: Receiving a nomination from a Canadian province can increase your CRS score by up to 600 points.

5. Job offer: Obtaining a job offer from a Canadian employer can increase your CRS score by up to 200 points.

6. Spousal factors: If your spouse or common-law partner also meets the eligibility requirements, you can receive additional points for language proficiency, education, and work experience.
