Why use this Express Entry CRS Calculator?
You might be asking why you would use this Express Entry Calculator on Moving2Canada, when Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has its own version. That’s a fair question. The IRCC version certainly adds up the numbers correctly, plus it is built by the same government department that invites candidates and approves immigration applications.
There are, however, a few advantages to using the Moving2Canada Express Entry Calculator. For example, the IRCC version requires you to input your language test results; if you don’t have language test results available, there is no alternative option to input language ability using descriptive language. Without language test results, the IRCC version deems you ineligible and does not let you complete the questionnaire. The IRCC version also does not tell you which Express Entry program(s) you may be eligible for. Further, the IRCC version does not show what minimum scores have been in previous Express Entry draws, making it tricky to assess the competitiveness of a person’s CRS score in relation to other candidates.
The Moving2Canada Express Entry Calculator (this one!) provides this additional context to help users navigate through their journey. It also provides assessment on eligibility to enter the Express Entry pool, as well as a CRS Score Breakdown and analysis of competitiveness based on that score.
Moving2Canada makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information via this Express Entry CRS Calculator (the Calculator). However, the information in the Calculator is for information purposes exclusively. Admittance to the Express Entry pool and a candidate’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score therein is assessed by the Government of Canada, specifically Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Moving2Canada does not accept any liability for any loss or damage incurred by use of or reliance on the Calculator or the information contained therein and assumes no legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of the information.
