Federal Skilled Worker

The Canada Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) program is the backbone of Canadian immigration. For the first time in over six years, there will be no restricted occupations list, or cap to limit the number of candidates. The Canadian Government’s intention is to attract over 180,000 candidates worldwide, and the competition will be fierce. Here is a brief summary of what you need to know:

  • You have worked in an occupation in the NOC 0, A or B categories for at least one year in the past 10
  • You must qualify fully in this program under the assessment grid and points system based on your age, education, work history, and other adaptability factors, with a current passmark of 67
  • You must have your Education Credentials Assessment done and in your hand prior to applying
  • You must have your English or French Language proficiency test done and completed, with scores (not older than 2 years from application date) in hand
  • Dependent children under the age of 19 (on date of application) are eligible to be included
  • You will be required to have settlement funds for your arrival
  • You must not have any serious health issues, or a criminal record that would make you inadmissible to Canada
  • If you qualify in the FSW program with a passmark of 67 or higher, you may then apply to be considered using the Express Entry (EE) protocol
  • If you are chosen in the EE protocol, you will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) and you will have exactly 60 days to submit a complete perfected application and all supporting documents
  • Having a passmark of 67 and applying for EE does not mean you will be chosen, as you will be ranked among ALL of the applicants who have entered the EE pool, and those with the highest CRS scores will be chosen first

Competitive Pricing, Superior Service

Finding out that you qualify in the Federal Skilled Worker category is just the beginning of your journey to immigrating to Canada. Having skilled, caring expert coaches from start to end should be your number one priority.
