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 CRS score Calculator to calculate your score. 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.

What is the CRS score for Canada Express Entry in 2024?

With the introduction of category- based draws, this is a tough one to answer as the CRS you need to score to be selected in 2024 will depend on your occupation. If you do not have an occupation which is targeted in the category- based draws, you will need to aim to score a CRS of at least 500. If you have a targeted occupation, you can score lower. For instance, the current CRS score for Canada 2024 healthcare applicants is around 431 whereas for STEM workers a CRS of around 486 is needed to get an invitation to apply for Canada PR (permanent residence). Either way, you goal on entering the Express Entry pool should be to score as many CRS points as possible.

What is the current/latest score draw for the CRS 2024?

There are several draws that happen each month. Rather than focus on the current/ latest draw, you should be more concerned with the CRS draw trend and follow all draws. You can get an update on all Express Entry draws, and that they mean on our comprehensive Express Entry draws page.
