Guide to Moving to Canada in 2024: Understanding CRS Scores


Canada is IN-DEMAND image

Friday, 15th December 2023

If you want to move to Canada using the Express Entry system, it's essential to keep an eye on the Comprehensive Ranking Score (CRS) threshold for each draw. The Canadian government holds these draws every two weeks and invites people who meet or exceed the minimum CRS score to apply for permanent residency.

Let’s get into the details through this blog on how much CRS score do I need for Canada in 2024?

In 2023, the CRS cut-off varied, reflecting changes in candidate pools and immigration targets. For example, a CRS score of 500 was the minimum required for Canadian permanent residency as of September 2023.

It's important to know that a "good" CRS score can vary, depending on the highest scores in the Express Entry pool at any given time. For instance, if the highest score is 600, then a good CRS score might range from 400 to 600 points.

Changes to the Express Entry System include category-based selection, prioritizing certain jobs and skills, and targeted invitations for candidates with specific language abilities or work experience in certain fields.

The question arises whether the CRS cut-off will fall below 470 in 2024. Considering the trend of targeted draws and category-based rounds, it's possible for the CRS cut-off to go below 470 for specific draws. The Canadian government uses these draws to address economic goals and labour market needs, potentially resulting in lower CRS cut-offs for candidates who meet specific criteria.

What's a good CRS score for Canada PR in 2024?

In 2024, a good CRS score for Canadian immigration may be around 480 points for all programs and approximately 430 points for the CEC program.

If your CRS score is low, you can take steps to improve your chances of getting permanent residence, such as getting a job offer, applying for Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs), using the study permit to PR route, or using the visitor visa to work permit route.

These strategies can boost your CRS score and enhance your eligibility for Canadian permanent residency.

Canada Express Entry Draw; June 2019
The latest Canada Express Entry draw was held on 12 June 2019, with 3,350 invitations issued. The lowest qualifying score on the comprehensive ranking system (CRS) was 465 points. The next draw is expected to have a similar minimum CRS score. The previous draw had a minimum cut off point of 470.

These scores are considered pretty high on the CRS system. The reasons can be attributed to the fact that a greater number of qualified candidates have entered the Express Entry pool, and an increased time period between the draws, allowing a greater number of candidates to enter the pool; thus making the Express Entry Draws very competitive.
