What is a CRS Score?

The CRS is a points-based system that the Canadian government uses to assess and score your profile and rank it in the Express Entry pool. This CRS Calculator will determine and calculate your CRS score based on the answers you provide. The CRS calculator will estimate your CRS score which will determine if you are eligible for Canadian Permanent Residency through the Express Entry Program. This Express Entry Calculator tool lets you estimate your Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for Express Entry immigration to Canada.
