CRS is the overall score for the Comprehensive Ranking System to check your chances of obtaining a Canada PR. Based on various factors in the CRS points calculator -the CRS calculates the immigration points. The higher the CRS, the greater your odds are to obtain an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residency.
How does the CRS work?
For eligible migration categories that invite internationally skilled migrants to permanently come and settle in the country and contribute to Canada's growing economy, the Comprehensive Ranking System calculates the score.
While submitting via the Express Entry Process there are two levels of Canada immigration. The federal skilled worker program, which includes at least 67 out of 100 points for the Canada Point Assessment grid, and the other, is the economic programs processed under Express Entry. Points of age education credentials, work experience, language proficiency, and adaptability factor are measured in order to determine whether the applicant is qualified or not for the next level of Canada PR.
Phase 2, where qualifying candidates are put and ranked according to their CRS profile ranking, is called the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The parameters for points are almost similar to FSWP. The CRS score is calculated out of 1200 points. Candidates with the qualifying CRS score, and have their profiles placed in the Express Entry pool -are invited to apply for permanent residency.

According to the latest CIC draw, candidates with a minimum CRS score of 472 or above were eligible to apply for permanent residency by the Canadian Government.
