Check out the Difference Between CRS Scores and FSW Points

Are you planning to immigrate to Canada? 
If yes, you must have so much confusion about the application process and eligibility requirements. 
As you know, to get a Canada PR status, you are required to pass the point-based system, i.e., CRS score and FSW point. 
Many of the visa applicants get confused between the two point-based systems required to get Canadian permanent residency. 
Worry not! We have got you covered. Let’s delve into the differences.
To make it clear and in a precise way, let’s talk about the CRS scores and FSW points:
  • The Federal Skilled Workers Program (FSW) point is a 100-point-based system to become eligible for the Express Entry System
  • The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score is 1200 points to receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canada PR in the Express Entry pool. 

How to Calculate your FSW Points? 

You need to first go through the FSW points calculator to determine your eligibility for the Express Entry System. 
The points you get through the calculator will help the Canadian government choose the most skilled and talented workers in the Express Entry pool. 
Through this point-based system, Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) selects candidates for Canada PR who scored a minimum of 67 points.
To become eligible for the Federal Skilled Worker Program, you need to obtain 67 points out of 100. There are different factors through which you can earn a maximum of points.

  • To receive an invitation, you need to enter the Express Entry pool, and for that, you have to earn a minimum of 67 points.
  • The points are based on factors such as age, work experience, language proficiency, adaptability, and many more factors. 

How to Calculate your CRS Scores?

If you want to immigrate to Canada, you first need to calculate your scores using the CRS calculator. 
The higher your CRS score, the higher the chance of your profile receiving an invitation to apply for Canada PR in the Express Entry pool. 
However, if you are applying under the Federal Skilled Worker Program, you need to first get a maximum of 67 points through a 67-point system. 
The CRS score is based on various factors, such as:
  • You can receive up to 1200 points in the CRS calculator and ease the immigration process. 
  • Out of the 1200 points, 600 are allotted based on core factors, such as age, language ability, work experience, educational qualifications, and many more. 
  • You can receive the remaining 600 points only if you get the nomination from the province of Canada through the Provincial Nominee Program.
