The eligibility of a candidate for Canada PR status is determined by assigning points to various factors such as age, language proficiency, education, work experience, and adaptability. These points are calculated based on the personal information of the candidate provided during the evaluation process. Under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), candidates are assigned points which determine their score. These scores vary depending on individual capabilities and credentials. The minimum eligibility for Canada PR status is then calculated based on the points assigned by the IRCC and announced through the Express Entry Draws. It's important to note that only candidates who score above the minimum points requirement set by the Express Entry Draws will be eligible to apply for PR status.
