If you are planning immigrating to Canada, or changing your status to permanent, you are most likely using or going to be using Express Entry, the way skilled workers immigrate to Canada. This page contains the current distribution of CRS scores in the Express Entry pool. Find your range below and see how many candidates you are competing with.

The majority of candidates have scores under 400 points, and no draw has been lower than 400 points, so you owe it to yourself to figure out how you get more than 400 points. See this page for an in-depth explanation of how the score is calculated.

Good luck!
