The IRCC opens a draw every fortnight to select the top ranking candidates in the pool and subsequently issue them the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residency visa.

Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Table for Points Allocation 

If you want to obtain Permanent Residency in Canada this year, it is crucial to calculate CRS points well in advance. The Express Entry Immigration Points table provides you with the vital information regarding how many points you may earn for each factor of your profile, i.e. age, education, work experience, language proficiency, etc.

The IRCC will launch a draw every fortnight to select applicants with top CRS points and subsequently allocate them ITA (Invitation to Apply) for Canada PR. The IRCC announces the cut-off marks or minimum point score requirement for every draw, i.e. around 470 points mark (as per the latest EE draw trend).

What is the minimum CRS score requirement to get Canada PR in 2021?

As mentioned already, the CRS point’s requirement is different for every express entry draw, which IRCC announces for every draw. This year, the points requirement has been moderate this the month of March. It went down to the lowest requirement of past one and a half year, i.e. 438 CRS, points, however, in the next few draws, the point’s requirement increased drastically.

As per the latest EE draw, the score requirement is around 470 CRS Points. Hence, considering the current trend of the EE draws and cut off marks, the applicants, who intend to get the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residency, need to have the point score close to the 470 points mark.

Hence, PNP provides the best way to raise your points on CRS Calculator.

How to increase your CRS score through a Provincial Nominee Program?

Every provincial nominee program in Canada has a different process, eligibility requirements as well as streams. The Express Entry stream of a PNP is viral among the immigration applicants.

Once you PNP send the NOI, the applicant applies in the EE stream of a PNP by submitting his/her EOI (Expression of Interest). The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) follows this process.
  • Submit EOI:¬†In the second pathway, the applicant with an express entry account can directly submit the EOI (Expression of Interest) in the Express Entry stream of a PNP. The Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program (SINP) follows this process. The SINP introduced the EOI (Expression of Interest)
