    If you plan to complete an Express Entry profile, enter your current age.

Enter the highest level of education for which you:

  • earned a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate or
  • had an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) if you did your study outside Canada. (ECAs must be from an approved agency, in the last five years)

Note: a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate must either have been earned at an accredited Canadian university, college, trade or technical school, or other institute in Canada. Distance learning counts for education points, but not for bonus points in your profile or application.

Note: to answer yes:

  • English or French as a Second Language must not have made up more than half your study
  • you must not have studied under an award that required you to return to your home country after graduation to apply your skills and knowledge
  • you must have studied at a school within Canada (foreign campuses don’t count)

6) Work Experience

It must have been paid and full-time (or an equal amount in part-time).

Note: In Canada, the National Occupational Classification (NOC) is the official list of all the jobs in the Canadian labour market. It describes each job according to skill type, group and level.

"Skilled work" in the NOC is:

  • managerial jobs (NOC Skill Level 0)
  • professional jobs (NOC Skill Type A)
  • technical jobs and skilled trades/manual work (NOC Skill Type B)

If you aren’t sure of the NOC level for this job, you can find your NOC.

It must have been paid, full-time (or an equal amount in part-time), and in only one occupation (NOC skill type 0, A or B).

Note: A certificate of qualification lets people work in some skilled trades in Canada. Only the provinces, territories and a federal body can issue these certificates. To get one, a person must have them assess their training, trade experience and skills to and then pass a certification exam.

People usually have to go to the province or territory to be assessed. They may also need experience and training from an employer in Canada.

This isn’t the same as a nomination from a province or territory.

Additional Points

A valid job offer must be

  • full-time
  • in a skilled job listed as Skill Type 0, or Skill Level A or B in the 2011 National Occupational Classification
  • supported by a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or exempt from needing one
  • for one year from the time you become a permanent resident

A job offer isn’t valid if your employer is:

  • an embassy, high commission or consulate in Canada or
  • on the list of ineligible employers.

Whether an offer is valid or not also depends on different factors, depending on your case. See a full list of criteria for valid job offers.

How to improve the CRS Score?

If you've already submitted your Express Entry profile and your CRS score is lower than there is lower chance of getting invitation. We will provide you with the best options for improving your CRS score.

There are many ways to improve the CRS Score while they are in the Express Entry pool:

1. Obtain a Provincial Nomination

A provincial nomination, worth 600 points, is a great way for a candidate to rise to the top of the pool. This path will most likely benefit the best-organized candidates. Those who can identify a hiring sponsor employer will also do well here. Different provinces have different priority occupations, which can shift at any time. Candidates must have their applications updated and ready to submit. When categories open or close, some provinces do nothing more than updates their websites.

2. Get a Job Offer

Securing a job offer, it’ll give you up to 200 points. It provides significant chance of receiving an ITA. The best way to accomplish this is to conduct a thorough job search related to visiting Canada. When preparing for a potentially life-changing move, a candidate should always visit the country. Aside from providing insight into what life will be like in Canada, the chances of landing a job are significantly increased if a candidate is available to meet face-to-face with employers or have any relatives who can help them to get the job.

3. Improve Your Education

Under Express Entry, international students who complete recognized degrees and diplomas in Canada are given bonus points.

To earn points for Canadian education, the candidate must have:

  • Studied at a Canadian educational institution.
  • Have completed at least eight months of full-time study or training.
  • At least eight months physical presence in Canada

4. Your spouse has the ability to score points

Once you've determined who the primary applicant is, the other person in the relationship can increase the CRS score by up to 40 points by gaining Canadian work experience, furthering their education, or improving their language skills. Provincial programs award points for well-qualified spouses as well.

5. Improve your language abilities.

Any improvement in a candidate's language skills can lead to a higher score, but reaching Canadian Benchmark Level 9 or higher can result in an extra 100 points on top of the 260 available when combined with other factors. The higher the score, the better a candidate's English and/or French, so a candidate should continue to take lessons and retake the tests while in the Express Entry pool. If you are bilingual in English and French, have both languages evaluated to maximize your points.
