Express Entry FAQ: Comprehensive Ranking System(CRS)
The Comprehensive Ranking System is the Government of Canada’s unique points system for ranking candidates based on a variety of factors.
Eligible candidates can submit a profile into the Express Entry pool, where they are ranked according the Comprehensive Ranking System criteria. The Government of Canada regularly issues Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for Canadian permanent residence to the highest ranked candidates through draws from the pool, and aims to process applications within six months.
