Canada Express Entry Points Calculator /Canada PR Points Calculator 2019

If you want to obtain Permanent Residency in Canada in 2019, it is crucial to check your total points score well in advance.Express Entry has designed point system that evaluate your profile at two stages, first to make certain whether you are eligible for the express entry under Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and second to allocate you permanent residency invitation based on your CRS (Comprehensive Ranking system) Score in the Express Entry pool.

What is CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System)?

Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) is a point system used by Canada’s Federal express entry Immigration system to rank the candidates in Express Entry pool. The ranking is given to the candidates, based on the CRS point score awarded to them for six selection factors of their profile i.e. age, language proficiency, work experience, adaptability, educational qualifications etc. Once the points are allocated, each express entry profile gets a ranking, based on which IRCC (Immigration Refugees and citizenship Canada) issue them Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada PR Visa. Hence, there are to key selection parameters in Express Entry System. Both Canada Express Entry Points Calculator and FSW point’s calculator depends on six selection factors of EE system, i.e.
  • Age Factor-As an express entry candidate, you get maximum points for age factors, when you are in age group 18-35. However, with the increase in your age, your points for this factor start decreasing gradually. However, you can still win the invite if your point score is good based on other factors.
  • Academic Education factor– a decent educational qualification (minimum graduate) is must if you want to get good points for Canada PR in express entry and other provincial programs.
  • Working Experience factor- Decent work experience (at least 3 years) can help you win decent points in Express Entry or PNP programs.
  • Language Proficiency factor– You need to provide evidence of your proficiency in English or French by providing the language test result, i.e. IELTS with good band score (minimum CLB 7) and get good points based on the same.
  • Adaptability factor-If you or your spouse/common law partner has past work experience or education in Canada, it can help you earn valuable points.
  • Job offer or Arranged Employment factor– Although job offer is not mandatory as per the changes made in June 2017, but if you have a job offer from Canada, it can get you some crucial immigration points.

Eligibility for ITA (Invitation to Apply) based on CRS score

Once you have cleared the FSW points criteria and reached the Express Entry pool of Candidates, and will get a point score which is known as CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) Score out of 1200 points. The Canada Express Entry Points Calculator-2019 provides you the accurate information, as to how many points you may earn for key factors, i.e. age, education, work experience, language proficiency, etc. The IRCC launch a draw every fortnight to select applicants with top CRS score and subsequently allocate them ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canada Permanent Residency (PR) visa. As per the latest Express entry draw held on March 6, 2019, the minimum CRS score requirement from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) was 454 CRS points or above. So, if you want to get Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada PR in 2019, you need to have a point score close to this mark as per the latest trend.

Eligibility for FSWP- 67 points Criteria
