Under Canada’s economic streams for PR, there are three categories a foreign national may fit under. This system is point based. You will be assessed on a number of factors, each equating to a point value, the total of which will be your CRS (comprehensive Ranking Score). After completing your online profile you will be entered into a pool of other eligible individuals. Immigration Canada will then pull people based on a score, approximately twice a month. At present time the average score you must meet to be eligible for PR is a CRS of 440.
