The eligible passing score to be considered for express entry pool is 67 immigration points out of 100 on Canada assessment grid for the factors namely age, educational qualification, work experience, language ability, and adaptability factors.

The first stage is the FSWP immigration point requirement that checks the potential applicant ability to apply for Canada Permanent Resident Visa.

After meeting the 67 immigration point requirement criteria, the next stage is the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Stage where the applicants who have the high immigration points are invited to apply.

Please note: an Express Entry is not a PR application, but an indication of your interest in applying for PR Visa. Only submitting the profile in the express entry pool will not guarantee an invitation to apply for Canada Permanent Resident Visa.

Canada prioritizes those applicants who have a high CRS score in the express entry pool. So, we can say that selection is completely based on CRS score, having highest CRS score will eventually lead to higher/more chances in getting an invitation to apply for PR.
