Canada introduced the Express Entry system in 2015. The new program facilitates faster processing of applications for various federal economic immigration programs. The Federal Skilled Trades, Federal Skilled Worker, and the Canadian Experience Class are the main programs under the Express Entry program and are very competitive. Immigration candidates are ranked against each other, and only the individuals who rank high are chosen to become permanent residents in Canada.
The CRS score
To effectively rank immigration candidates, the government created a merit-based points system that assigns a score to all candidates in the Express Entry pool. This point system is known as CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System). The score assigned to the candidates is referred to as the CRS score.
The points a candidate gets from the CRS include a comprehensive set of a maximum of 600 and a set of extra points 600 (maximum). Therefore, your total score will be calculated out of 1,200.
The core points: a maximum of 600
- Skills and experience factors
- Common-law partner or spouse factors such as their education level and language skills

- A sister or brother living in Canada who is a permanent resident or citizen of Canada
