Enter the highest level of education for which you:

  • earned a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate or
  • had an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) if you did your study outside Canada. (ECAs must be from an approved agency, in the last five years)

Note: a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate must either have been earned at an accredited Canadian university, college, trade or technical school, or other institute in Canada. Distance learning counts for education points, but not for bonus points in your profile or application.

Note: to answer yes:

  • English or French as a Second Language must not have made up more than half your study
  • you must not have studied under an award that required you to return to your home country after graduation to apply your skills and knowledge
  • you must have studied at a school within Canada (foreign campuses don’t count)
  • you had to be enrolled full time for at least eight months, and have been physically present in Canada for at least eight months

Enter your test scores:

If so, which language test did you take for your second official language?

Test results must be less than two years old.

Enter your test scores for:

6) Work Experience

It must have been paid and full-time (or an equal amount in part-time).

Note: In Canada, the National Occupational Classification (NOC) is the official list of all the jobs in the Canadian labour market. It describes each job according to skill type, group and level.

“Skilled work” in the NOC is:

  • managerial jobs (NOC Skill Level 0)
  • professional jobs (NOC Skill Type A)
  • technical jobs and skilled trades/manual work (NOC Skill Type B)

It must have been paid, full-time (or an equal amount in part-time), and in only one occupation (NOC skill type 0, A or B).

Note: A certificate of qualification lets people work in some skilled trades in Canada. Only the provinces, territories and a federal body can issue these certificates. To get one, a person must have them assess their training, trade experience and skills to and then pass a certification exam.

People usually have to go to the province or territory to be assessed. They may also need experience and training from an employer in Canada.

This isn’t the same as a nomination from a province or territory.

Additional Points

A valid job offer must be

  • full-time
  • in a skilled job listed as Skill Type 0, or Skill Level A or B in the 2011 National Occupational Classification
  • supported by a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or exempt from needing one
  • for one year from the time you become a permanent resident

A job offer isn’t valid if your employer is:

  • an embassy, high commission or consulate in Canada or
  • on the list of ineligible employers.

Whether an offer is valid or not also depends on different factors, depending on your case.

You can use our online tool to find out if you don’t know.

Note: to answer yes, the brother or sister must be:

  • 18 years old or older
  • related to you or your partner by blood, marriage, common-law partnership or adoption
  • have a parent in common with you or your partner

It must have been paid, full-time (or an equal amount in part-time), and in one or more NOC 0, A or B jobs.

Test results must be less than two years old.

How CRS Calculator Works?

Candidates who have applied for Canada PR Visa through Canada’s source of skilled immigrants – Express Entry Program are all pooled together in a pool. Express profiles are ranked in this pool based on points that are awarded based on factors:

  • Core Human Capital Factors
  • Spouse/Common-law Partner Factors
  • Skill Transferability Factors
  • Additional Factors

Every factor has CRS points that are awarded to the express profile of the candidate. This is where the CRS Calculator comes in. Based on these factors, the CRS calculator asks a series of questions to the candidate and assist them to know their CRS score for Canada immigration.

 

What is the Express Entry Program 2020?

The main source for skilled immigrants in Canada – Express entry program was introduced in 2015 to manage the profiles of the immigrants who have applied for Canada PR through Canada’s three major skilled economic immigration programs:

Express Entry Program 2020

 

What is CRS?

Implemented by Express Entry Program, CRS is a ranking system that ranks express profiles in the express pool. Higher ranked profiles are issued ITAs (Invitation to Apply) through frequently held express draws. This ITA allows the express entry candidate to submit their application with the proper set of documents for Canada PR Visa to the Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) within 60 days of getting the ITA.

 

 

 

Express Entry 2020 Vs Canada PNP

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is another immigration program for skilled immigrants to apply for Canada PR Visa. Every province in Canada (except Quebec) has these PNPs that allows them to nominate skilled immigrants for permanent resident status in respective province, who are able to meet the requirements of the local labour market. 

When compared to the Federal government’s Express Entry program, PNPs have much lower requirements for immigrants to meet. Every PNP has different requirements that are based on the demand of labour market of the province, and if an immigrant is able to meet those requirements (Job-offer, Connection to the province, Occupation in-demand) they are given the provincial nomination certificate. There are some PNPs that even do not require the candidate to have a CRS score. 

 

Latest CRS Cut-off

IRCC held express draws in approximately two weeks to issue ITAs to the higher-ranked profiles in the express pool. Each express draw has a minimum CRS score requirement (CRS score cut-off). Express profiles that are able to meet the required minimum CRS score are issued the ITA. In the latest express draw, the CRS score cut-off was set at 469 points. This means that the express profile in the express pool with the CRS score of 469 or more points was issued the ITAs.

 

What are the Minimum Requirements to apply for Canada PR Visa?

For any skilled immigrants with work experience in an eligible occupation to apply for Canada PR Visa through Express Entry Program (Federal Skilled Worker Program), they must meet the minimum of the following requirement to apply for Canada PR Visa:

  • Minimum of one year of work experience in a skilled occupation that is categorized under NOC (National Occupation Classification) skill type 0, A or B  in the last 10 years
  • Minimum CLB (Canadian Language Benchmark) level 7 under language proficiency
  • Education must be equivalent to the Canadian education system (Education Credential Assessment) and must have a minimum of a post-secondary degree, diploma or certificate
  • Must provide proof of settlement funds

What are the Ways to Improve CRS Score 2020?

Due to the higher CRS score requirement, many of the express profiles are not able to meet those requirements. For express entry candidates, to increase their chances of getting an ITA, they have to improve their CRS score. We have divided the factors based on the time taken to work on them – Fast methods and Slow Methods.

Fast methods to improve the CRS score in 2020 are as follows:

  • Improving language Test Scores: Language proficiency is one of the factors based on which CRS points are awarded. If the candidate is able to score higher in language tests like IELTS etc, they can improve their CRS score
  • Spouse Factors: Candidate who is applying with their spouse/common-law partner can get extra points for their qualifications.

Awesome Team Support !

AP Immigration Pvt. Ltd. is the first sincere immigration company with meticulous and conversant team. For my case I have ran through all the big Immigration companies in the market but was not satisfied with the counselings itself, but when Mr. Manish gave me the counselling, he gave me so much information and that too in a layman’s language which helped me gain confidence in the company. Once I registered myself with them I was allotted a case manager who gave me all the information on prior hand about what would be the process and how will it go through. I am very happy that I went by the services provided and not by the big brand names. Thank you all for your help in getting my visa approval. Thank you so so much Manish
