Figuring Canada Comprehensive Ranking System Points Break-up
Canada Comprehensive Ranking System Points
Canada is a leading overseas destination and high on the radar of those keen to move to a top hotspot, for a better life and improved wages. Much like some other top destinations of the world–such as Australia, for example–Canada also follows a Points Based immigration system, also called Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), to screen the candidates eager to move on the basis of their skills and qualifications.
The CRS is managed and run by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The Canadian immigration supervising organization uses the Comprehensive Ranking System to evaluate and score the profiles submitted by the candidates under the well-known and extensively used Express Entry System.
Under the Comprehensive Ranking System, the profile of the applicants, which make their way to the Express Entry bank, get a total from their profile answers, including their abilities, education, language ability, job experience, and some additional factors.
Under the points based system, the applicants also get points for the degrees, diplomas or certificates earned in Canada; a legally valid employment offer; a nomination from a Canadian province or territory; and some other factors.
Comprehensive Ranking System Points Breakup
The points given under the points based system comprise what is called a core set of points (a maximum of 600), and a set of additional points (a maximum of 600). The total Points up-for-grabs under the Comprehensive Ranking System are 1,200.
One may divide the Comprehensive Ranking System into three parts:
Core Human Capital (Skills & Experience): 500/1200
The parameters are age of the main applicant, his level of education, official languages, his Canadian job experience, official languages skills. One can get points for his spouse or common-law partner also on the basis of their level of education, official languages, Canadian job experience, and official languages skills. For the Core Human Capital & the Spouse or common-law partner factors, a maximum of 500 points (with or minus a spouse or common-law partner) are obtainable.
Skills Transferability: 100/1200
Under this head, education, foreign employment experience, and certificate of qualification (for those in trade professions) are taken into consideration and points offered.
Additional Factors: 600/1200
A maximum of 600 points can be gained under the Additional Factors. If one has a brother or sister residing in the Maple Leaf country (who is either a citizen or a permanent resident), French Language Skills, Post-secondary education in the country, or arranged employment or Provincial nomination, as mentioned earlier, he can get a maximum of 600 additional points under the Comprehensive Ranking System, under the Additional Factors head.
So, this is the break-up of the CRS and the way using which the IRCC assigns points to the candidates whose profiles are in the Express Entry Pool.
