The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) is the most common and traditional immigration program in Canada that intends to attract and select skilled individuals from all over the world to come and make Canada as their new home. The program is designed to address the economic requirements of the country and fill in the gaps in the market.
Since January of 2015, the Federal Skilled Worker Program is now part of this fast-track immigration process called the Express Entry System. Express Entry allows Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to invite candidates to submit application for permanent residence. The Express Entry aims to speed up the process of approving qualified skilled foreign workers to a Permanent Resident Visa to Canada and help meet the labor needs of Canadian industries.
These professionals and skilled workers are chosen as permanent residents based on the minimum requirements that should be met through these selection factors:
These six factors will be used to assess the eligibility of the applicant for the Federal Skilled Worker Program. The current pass mark is 67 points.
One of the advantages if the applicant choose to apply for Federal Skilled Worker Program is that he/she is not required to have any connection in Canada, as long as the applicant has met the minimum requirements required by the Federal Skilled Worker Program. Take note that the minimum requirement for work experience, language proficiency, and education can all be completed outside of Canada. That is the reason why, this program is an excellent option for those applicants who are living outside of Canada.
