Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSW)
The Federal Skilled Worker Program is Canada’s flagship immigration program for workers, allowing the country to welcome thousands of newcomers every year based on their ability to become established in Canada’s workforce.
Federal Skilled Worker Program in Canada is for applicants who have skilled work experience. Skilled work includes:
- Managerial jobs (skill type 0)
- Professional jobs (skill level A)
- Technical jobs and skilled trades (skill level B)
If you are not sure which skilled work experience you have, we can help you with that, this is what we are here for, to make it easy for you. Aside from the skilled work experience, the two other minimum requirements for this program are language ability and education.
The Selection Factors of Federal Skilled Worker Program in Canada
- Education: must have completed a minimum education equal to the completion of a Canadian high school diploma. If education was completed outside of Canada, you will need an Educational Credentials Assessment (ECA) attesting to the value of your education by Canadian standards.
- Work experience: must have a minimum of 12-months of full-time, skilled work experience, or an equivalent amount in part-time experience. This experience must be continuous and in a single occupation.
- Language Proficiency: must take an approved language test showing you are proficient in either English or French. The minimum score for FSW is equal to the Canadian Language Benchmark of Level 7 (CLB 7), although the higher you score, the better your chances of success.
These factors are a 100-point base grid that is used to assess the eligibility of the applicant. You only need 67 points to qualify for the program.
You must prove that you have enough money to support yourself or your family while looking for work. You don’t need this if you have a valid job offer from a Canadian employer.
