How the CRS Points System works

Candidates can score a maximum of 1,200 points in the CRS. The criteria for allocation of points:

  • • Awards 500 points for a core set of human capital factors that drive economic outcomes such as:
    • .Age-110
    • .Level of education-150
    • .Official language proficiency-160
    • .Canadian work experience- 80
  • • Awards 40 points for spousal factors( 10 points reduced and contributed here from above)
  • • Awards 100 points for skills transferability,
  • • Awards 600 points for applicants who have a validated provincial/territorial nomination and / or a qualifying arranged employment offer.

As you see above, AGE is one of the first criteria contributing 110 points towards the CRS.

This brings in a big change as max 110 is obtained by a candidate who is between 20 and 29, post which there is a reduction of 5 points every year and post 39, a reduction of 11 points every year. There are many options for applicants who are in CRS points ranging in 300’s. They need to clear the basic eligibility 67 points criteria.

There are still viable options for applicants to apply for a PR, few general ones are as per the circumstances:

Canada awards points to applicants with an approved job offer. This can award 50 points or 200 points, depending on the nature of the position and NOC.
