CRS stands for comprehensive Ranking System, and it is the point-based system which is used to score the profile in the pool of candidates. It uses some common factors like age, language proficiency, work experience, and level of education. Besides it, each Canada immigration program, either federal or provincial, run down its list of pre-requisites to determine the eligibility of the candidate.
However, before going deep down in detail, let’s brush up the important points on the Provincial Nominee Program. The reason to choose the PNP instead of Express entry program is its low CRS score. In general, Federal Express entry draw includes only economic categories so; the minimum CRS score drawn through its draw is quite high.
The lowest cut-off for express entry draw so far in this year, 2019 was 438. However, many aspirants fail to achieve such a high score. For them, Canada’s PNPs are the best option. In total, there are 11 PNPs to nominate the candidates for permanent residence and broadly, they are categorized into two – Enhanced PNP streams and base PNP stream. Enhanced PNP streams select candidates for nomination from the pool of federal express entry program. Whereas, Base PNP stream selects candidates outside the pool of Federal Express Entry program.
Generally, only enhanced PNP streams follow the CRS system while, others have their own point assessment grid to score the profiles.
Below is the distribution of CRS points among its factors:
|Core human capital factors
|without spouse: 500
with spouse: 460
|Accompanying spouse or common-law partner factors
|Additional points (for Provincial Nomination or a qualifying offer of arranged employment)
So if you are interested in any Canadian province, then you can choose any of the following PNP which remain active in so far in 2019 with minimum CRS score.
