CRS Points Calculator for Canada Immigration 2019

Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is a ranking system that ranks the profiles in the federal government’s express pool based on the CRS score linked with the express profiles under the Express Entry program.

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

All the profiles of the candidates are pooled together in the express pool. In the express pool with the use of the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), a ranking of the express profiles are determined in the express pool. Through regularly held express draws, Invitation to Apply (ITA) is issued to the higher-ranked profiles.

Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held the express draw in a regular time interval of two weeks. If there is any delay between the two consecutive express draws, it can lead to higher CRS cut-offs. In the latest express draw, CRS cut-off is set at 459 points. This means the express profiles with CRS score of 459 points or more were issued the ITAs in the latest round of express draws.  Through the ITA, candidates are able to submit their application to the IRCC for Canada PR Visa with the proper set of documents. Once the candidate gets an ITA, they have 60 days for the application submission to the IRCC.
