Express Entry: Comprehensive Ranking System For Couples

If a candidate is applying for immigration through the Express Entry system along with their spouse they must be aware of the partnered immigration in the Canada Express Entry system and that they will be scored differently as compared to the single applicants.

Canada’s three leading federal economic immigration programs are the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP),Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC).  To manage all the applications for these programs the IRCC uses a tool called the Express Entry.

Express Entry uses a points-based ranking tool called the Comprehensive Ranking System  (CRS). The CRS evaluates candidates on various factors, which IRCC views as demonstrating a candidate’s ability to succeed in Canada. These sections include factors such as education, language ability, and Canadian work experience.
