What is the minimum required CRS score required for Express Entry to Canada?

The Express Entry system draws from a pool of candidates that may be eligible to immigrate to Canada, and to be chosen from the pool and receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) an applicant must have an elevated CRS score.

The Comprehensive Ranking System

The CRS is a points driven system whereby points accumulate based on an applicant’s profile allowing the applicant to be ranked.  The following is a list of the maximum points per factor that can be applied to a profile:

Factor                   Points with Spouse         Points without Spouse

Age                        100                                         110

Education            140                                         150

Experience         70                                           80

Minimum points to qualify for an ITA

The minimum number of points required to qualify (but NOT guaranteed) for an ITA varies and changes depending on the number of applicants and the number of available ITAs offered by the Government.

As of August 2020, the minimum CRS is thought to be between 460 and 470 but again keep in mind that this will vary and is open to interpretation.  Obviously the higher an applicant’s CRS score, the better chance an the applicant will have to receive an ITA.
