Canada - Federal Skilled Worker (Express Entry)

 

Overview


As of January 2015, skilled foreign workers have access to Express Entry – a new electronic application management system – which applies to Canada’s key economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker program (FSW), Canadian Experience Class (CEC) and Federal Skilled Trade program (FST). The merits of a FSW application will be evaluated according to the applicant’s ability to become economically established upon immigration to Canada. 


Why choose the Federal Skilled Worker Program?

 

 

 

General Requirements

 

             - A Canadian secondary (high school) or post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree;
             - A completed foreign diploma, degree, or trade or apprenticeship credential issued for completing a program of study or training at a recognized educational or training institution. This credential must be evaluated via an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) report from an agency approved by CIC. Report must show the foreign education is equal to a Canadian credential.

 

Once the eligibility requirements are met, an Express entry profile must be created and applicants will enter the EE pool of candidates. Candidates will be ranked against others in the pool using a point-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System, the accompanying spouse credentials will also be taken into account. Those with the highest scores in the pool will be issued an invitation to apply for permanent residence.


*The above-mentioned procedure is only an outline of the program’s requirements. A legal advisor will provide a complete and more focused analysis upon request.
