To calculate your Express Entry score, use our Express Entry CRS Calculator. Â Candidates with a score of at least 400 pointsÂ are strong candidates and encouraged to apply. Â If you don’t score enough points, you may be eligible to apply to a PNP program based on an In-Demand Occupation. Â Candidates who are granted a PNP nominationÂ are awarded 600 points to add to their Express Entry score, guaranteeing to be selected to apply for PR. Â If you are currently not eligible to apply or not a strong candidate based on a low CRS score, you may consider studying in Canada as a pathway to PR.
