Note: Canada immigration is a point-based system. The minimum point requirement for your Express Entry filling is 67 points out of 100. Calculation of 67 points is done on certain credentials. Know how to calculate your 67 points.
If you are a skilled person willing to apply under any skilled stream of EE framework, then you need to have at least 67 points out of 100 on the basis of six factors, like age, educational qualification, work skills, language capability, adaptability and arranged job offer. This is a initial eligibility check and not the final immigration score.
Thus, the 67-point system is the primary process to check the qualification of the candidates to enrol in the Express Entry System. This point system has been introduced to allow only the eligible candidates to file immigration application and call for the most capable individuals without any bias. To be eligible to apply for a Permanent residency of the maple leaf country called Canada, the applicant must have at least 67 points out of 100 on Canada’s point assessment grid.
So start your evaluation process by calculating points. The whole procedure is set up for self-administration. Here is the full arrangement of Canada Point Calculator tool:
When you clear the FSW qualification criteria, you reach in second round, for example in EE Pool, where you will be given points dependent on the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) out of absolute 1200. Presently, your score indicates must be close enough the present cut off interest from Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
Canada’s point assessment grid allots points as per the proficiency of an individual. This proficiency is evaluated on personal credentials of an individual namely age, educational & work experiences, language proficiency, etc.
Canada Immigration point system is known as the most organised system of selecting candidates. This point system is also very vital in your immigration process as your total immigration point score is also dependent on how well you have scored out of 67 points. This means that the 67-point system will eventually determine your chances of moving to Canada and take part in other economic activities such as study, work etc.
Canada (CIC) has recently declared that it will be inviting applications under the Express Entry Program in huge numbers for the year 2019, till the year 2021. That is why, we insist you to calculate your scores on Canada’s 67 points calculator 2020 and get started with the application process.
Applicants whose applications are chosen from the Express Entry Pool should meet the minimum criteria of 67 points under the different streams of Express Entry. These streams are: These other streams are:
If you do not meet the criteria of 67 points, then you cannot start your express entry process under these streams.
The primary necessity to be able to get minimum 67 points on the calculator is that you have at least one year of full time work experience in a qualifying occupation. Note that full time is viewed as 30 hours or more for every week for an entire year, and a qualifying occupation is under NOC level O, A or B. Then you must also have at least 3 years of educational degree with a positive Educational Credentials assessment (ECA). Other requirement for a smooth 67 points total is CLB 7-8 level of English language ability as well as age of not more than 35-40 years. Your age matters in the immigration as Canada is looking for young applicants under 40s preferably. This is because your age is directly related to your productivity.
Combining all these elements, candidate is judged upon to give a score out of 100. You must be able to get 67 points at the minimum to be eligible to take part in the Express Entry Draw.
Let us look at these factors in details, on which Canada’s PR 67 point system allots points:
Step #1 – (Age: 12 Points Maximum)
Age is important as Canada invites young applicants who can productively contribute towards the development of the economy.
|47 and older||0|
Step #2 – (Language Skills – 28 points maximum)
Canada’s first official language is English. Therefore, having proficiency in English language is essential to be eligible for Canada PR. This is because after immigrating to Canada, your social life and professional life- both will demand you to know a decent level of English.
There are also extra points on French language proficiency as Canada is a bi-lingual country with both English & French as its official languages. Province like Quebec only acknowledges French language as it has a French speaking population only.
To showcase your English language proficiency, a language-testing exam called IELTS (International English Language Testing Standards) is mandatory to appear for. You need to be proficient in 4 modules of the test namely- Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.
|First official language (Maximum 24 points)|
|CLB level 9 or higher||6||6||6||6|
|CLB level 8||5||5||5||5|
|CLB level 7||4||4||4||4|
|Below CLB level 7||Not eligible to apply|
Second official (French) language (Maximum 4 points)
You can get four points only if you have a score of at least CLB 5 in each of the four language abilities.
|Second Official Language||Points|
|At least CLB5 in all of the four abilities||4|
|CLB 4 or less in any of the four abilities||0|
Step #3 – (Educational Qualification – 25 points maximum)
Canada only welcomes skilled and educated people in the country who are capable to perform and contribute positively in the development of the Canadian economy. Education is a mirror to a person’s moral value and skill set earned. Thus a minimum educational qualification is mandatory for you if you want to come and settle in a well-developed country like Canada.
For this factor, a maximum of 25 points are given. More your educational qualification, more points will be given to you. Minimum required educational qualification is a three year long Bachelors’ Degree from a recognised university/ institution. For getting maximum score of 25, you must be a PhD.
Educational qualification (Maximum 25 points)
|Education||Maximum 25 points|
|University degree at the Doctoral (PhD) level or equal||25 points|
University degree at the Master’s level or equal OR University level entry-to-practice professional degree (or equal). Occupation related to the degree must be:NOC 2016 Skill Level A, and
licensed by a provincial regulatory body
|Two or more Canadian post-secondary degrees or diplomas or equal (at least one must be for a program of at least three years)||22 points|
|Canadian post-secondary degree or diploma for a program of three years or longer, or equal||21 points|
|Canadian post-secondary degree or diploma for a two-year program, or equal||19 points|
|Canadian post-secondary degree or diploma for a one-year program, or equal||15 points|
|Canadian high school diploma, or equal||5 points|
Step #4. Work Experience – 15 points maximum
Your work experience is of also an important factor. Canada’s method of selection is hugely dependent on a person’s skills & expertise. For this, the number of years you have worked in a skilled job is counted and accordingly, a point score is given. More years of experience simply means higher scores. You must have minimum of 1 year of experience and to get full points in this factor, you must have 6 years of continuous experience in a single job.
Also, this work experience has to be in a Job profile listed in NOC (National Occupation Code) list of Canada. (Note: Experience in a profile listed in NOC list does not give you extra score. It is plainly an eligibility requirement).
Work Experience (maximum 15 points)
|Experience||Maximum 15 points|
|6 or more years||15|
Step #5. Arranged Employment – 10 points maximum
Though arranged employment is not a mandatory requirement for programs like Express Entry and some PNP programs, an approved Job offer from Canada do gives you an added advantage.
You get to earn additional 10 points for arranged employment in Canada provided it is:
An Increase of 10 points can also increase your chances of selection.
For getting a Job in Canada, you need to be highly skilled. It also requires you to know the employment trends and expectations of Canadian employers, such as your CV and cover letter must be in the Canadian formats. It is therefore that we, Oneclick immigrations give you professional services of CV and cover letter designing as per the Canadian standards. We also provide Job assistance services.
Step #6. Adaptability – 10 points maximum
Adaptability has all those factors that will help you to settling in Canada. A total of 10 points will be allotted to you in case if you are having a relative/ friend living in Canada and such relative/friend is willing to sponsor you. Other factors include French Language proficiency, Spouse Skills& Language abilities, etc. Having an adaptability factor is not mandatory but optional.

Question 1: What is the difference between the 67 point system and the express entry system for immigration to Canada?
Answer: Canada immigration is having so many programs available for the immigrants who want to get settled down in Canada in the search of better career and lifestyle. Canada is a land of opportunities. It is growing in all the sectors. Under the flagship of Skilled worker they have the fastest process for Permanent Residence seeker known as Express Entry program. Express entry system is based on point system. Here we calculate points on the basis of Age Education Language Ability i.e. IELTS Work Experience and spouse adaptability points are also there. These points are calculated on the scale of 100.
For age you can get maximum 12 points, for Education you can get maximum 25 points, for Work experience you can get maximum 15 points and for IELTS you get maximum 24 points, 4 points you get if you have French language ability, 5 points you can claim for your spouse education and language ability, if you have arranged employment letter that 10 points you can claim for that as well, 5 points if you or your spouse have any blood relative in Canada. So if you are able to achieve 67 points out of 100 than you are eligible for Express Entry program. This means that both Express entry and 67 points based system is the one and same thing.
Question 2 : What is 67 points PR system in Canada?
Answer: In Canada few of the eligibility determining criteria is there. These are as follows:
Question 3 : Is there any province in Canada accepting below 67 points for the Express Entry?
Answer: When we talk about 67 points criteria than here we need to understand that 67 points you need to score if you want to qualify for Express Entry stream. But also there are some other Provincial Nominee Programs available. These PNP program does not need you to have 67 points out of 100. They follow different point system or eligibility criteria. Some of the PNP’s want you to have job offer letter, other will need you to be already staying over there, Some provinces need any education qualification degree from that province itself, and some does not have any eligibility criteria, there you can submit your EOI simply and you will get nominated if they approve your application on the basis of their requirement.
Question 4 : How can one migrate to Canada without 67 points and not so much money for a business visa?
Answer: Well PR visa is the simplest way of migrating to Canada. You will get all the benefits if you get a PR rather than business visa which will only allow you to do business and you cannot reap any benefits of a PR holder. You can simply qualify 67 points based system. Your points will be calculated on the basis of age education IELTS, work experience and spouse adaptability. Here we calculate points on the basis of Age Education Language Ability i.e. IELTS Work Experience and spouse adaptability points are also there. These points will be calculated on the scale of 100 and if you secure 67 points you can apply under Express Entry program and if somehow you are unable to have 67 points than you can explore PNP programs available as well.
Question 5 : Should I apply for Canada PR if my normal score reach 67 points but in detail CRS I got 346 only without a PNP program?
Answer: FSW points or 67 points is the minimum eligibility criteria. If someone qualify this score than they can apply for Canada PR under Express Entry stream. SO if you are able to score 67 points out of 100 on the basis of the mandatory criteria than you can apply under Federal Government’s Express Entry stream. Now talking about the CRS or Comprehensive Ranking System, than here I would like to clarify that these points have a different system than the FSW. Here the points are calculated on the scale of 1200. If you are scoring 346 in the CRS and willing to improve your CRS score than you can do it by increasing your IELTS scores. I wont be able to give you exact figures that you need to score because that will need a proper assessment of your profile. For detailed assessment of your profile you can contact Oneclick visas directly.
Question 6 : Can I get PR in Canada by applying for a Canadian PNP without having the qualifying 67 points?
Answer: Canada is a land of opportunities. It gives you the opportunity to migrate to different provinces wherever you are eligible for. If you are not able to score the points as per minimum eligibility criteria than you can apply in the provinces where its not mandatory to score 67 points. 67 points are basically required if you want to apply under Express Entry stream. But if that is not your only choice than you can apply under different PNP programs. Saskatchewan is having occupation in demand stream where you do not need to have your profile in Express Entry poll or in other words you do not need to score 67 points for being eligible. This is one single example, there are other provinces as well.
Question 7 : What if an aspirant to Canada has just secured the cutoff for eligibility to apply, i.e. just 67 points? Does that make any impact in future for ITA?
Answer: Securing the minimum eligibility scores is not a bad thing. Whether it will make a difference on your profile or not will need a proper assessment of your data. I will be able to tell you that only if I get your complete details like age education language points work experience spouse adaptability points if married. So kindly share all these details with our immigration experts at Oneclick visas and get a proper assessment of your profile.
Question 8 : Is the Express Entry of Canada really helpful for immigration or can we directly apply under the federal skilled worker category for 67 points now or is that process eliminated this year?
Answer: Express entry stream is nothing different than federal governments immigration program which need you to score 67 points out of 100 to be eligible for this stream. In other words, federal skilled worker category, 67 points, and Express Entry stream all is the one and same thing. Express entry stream got introduced in January 2015 and since than there is no such news of elimination of this program. Express Entry is the fastest stream and lakhs of people have got migrated under this program. IRCC’s multiyear plan has already been introduced for the year 2019-2021. S, there is no such news of elimination of Express Entry stream in the coming three years at least.
Question 9 : What if your score is less than 67 points (out of 100) and you are not qualified to immigrate to Canada as a “federal skilled worker”, what other options are there?
Answer: If you are not able to score the points as per minimum eligibility criteria than you can apply in the provinces where its not mandatory to score 67 points. 67 points are basically required if you want to apply under Express Entry stream. But if that is not your only choice than you can apply under different PNP programs. Also, if you are not able to migrate to Canada as Federal Skilled Worker than you can explore other programs like Federal Skilled Trade, or if you have experience in Canada than under Canadian Experience class. You can also migrate on job or employment visa. SO that will be your choice completely.
Question 10 : How can I get PR in Canada if my points are less than 67?
Answer: Canada gives you the opportunity to migrate to different provinces wherever you are eligible for. If you are not able to score the points as per minimum eligibility criteria than you can apply in the provinces where its not mandatory to score 67 points. 67 points are basically required if you want to apply under Express Entry Stream. PNP program does not need you to have 67 points out of 100. They follow different point system or eligibility criteria. Some of the PNP’s want you to have job offer letter, other will need you to be already staying over there, Some provinces need any education qualification degree from that province itself, and some does not have any eligibility criteria, there you can submit your EOI simply and you will get nominated if they approve your application on the basis of their requirement.
