Express Entry is an online system that we use to manage immigration applications from skilled workers.
There are 3 immigration programs managed through Express Entry:
Canadian Experience Class
- for skilled workers who have Canadian work experience; work experience must have been gained in the 3 years before you apply
Federal Skilled Worker Program
- for skilled workers with foreign work experience; must meet criteria for education and other factors
Federal Skilled Trades Program
- for skilled workers who are qualified in a skilled trade; must have a valid job offer or a certificate of qualification
If you’re eligible for one or more of the Express Entry programs and submit your profile, you’ll be ranked in the Express Entry pool using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). The CRS is a points-based system used to assess and score your profile and rank it in the Express Entry pool. To be invited, you will need to have a score above the minimum points from draw.

Now, how does age affect my score?
We can see that 20-29 years old gets the optimal score of 100, and after that, 5 points will be deducted per age year. After 45 years old, there will be 0 points for age.
On the up side, there are ways to improve your CRS score to make up for lost points. Feel free to contact us to learn more!
