Achieve Your Canadian Dream - Secure Your Path to Permanent Residency.


Federal Skilled Worker Program

One of the three main economic immigration programs in Canada is the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), which is controlled through the Express Entry system. Express entry is an online system that is used to manage immigration applications from skilled workers. There are three categories of immigration processes managed through the express entry system:

  • Canadian Experienced Class:  this is for skilled workers who have Canadian work experience for 3 years and are willing to become Canada PR.

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program: skilled workers with foreign work experience having linguistic abilities and are willing to migrate permanently to Canada are eligible for FSWP.

  • Federal Skilled Trade Programs: skilled workers who are willing to become permanent residents in Canada and have relevant qualifications can apply under this program.

Candidates can apply for permanent residency through the FSWP if they have suitable foreign work experience and have no connections to Canada.

Requirements for Federal Skill Worker Program

Candidates who want to apply for Canada PR are ranked using the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), a point-based system used by the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP). Candidates applying under the FSWP do not require having Canadian work experience in order to be considered for the Express Entry pool, in contrast to the other two Express Entry programs, the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP).

The points-based technique assigns a CRS score to applicants in the pool based on certain characteristics. We can help you in determining your eligibility criteria in following different categories; according to this points are awarded:

  • Age

  • Level of education

  • Experience

  • Second official language ability

  • Employment experience in Canada.

  • Adaptability

Skill Type 0 (zero) - Management positions such as restaurant managers, traders in the retail and wholesale, managers in the food service and hospitality sector, and more are included in this category.

Skill level A- includes a variety of job categories like Information Technology (IT) occupations, engineering and construction vocations, legal careers, and more. These positions typically require a degree from an accredited university.

Skill level B- Technical and skilled trade professions, such as those for cooks, plumbers, general office employees, retail salespeople, and others, that typically require a college degree or apprenticeship training fall under this category.
