If you think you are eligible and you have passed our eligibility assessment please book an appointment to talk to one of our ICCRC registered consultants.

Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) program

The Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) program is managed under the Express Entry system and uses the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) to rank candidates who wish to settle permanently in Canada. Unlike the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) candidates, Federal Skilled Workers are not required to have Canadian work experience to enter the Express Entry pool. Instead, candidates must meet a minimum point’s requirement based on factors such as work experience, language ability, and education. Once in the pool, applicants with the most competitive CRS scores will receive invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

What are the criteria for being eligible for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) under Express Entry system?

To be eligible for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), a candidate must meet the following minimum requirements:

  • At least 12 months of continuous, full-time, skilled work experience completed within the last 10 years (or an equivalent amount of part-time experience)
  • A minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 7 in English or French language proficiency
  • A minimum of a Canadian high school diploma or equivalent foreign education
  • Enough funds to support themselves and any dependents during their settlement in Canada
  • Intention to reside outside the province of Quebec. Additionally, the candidate must score a minimum of 67 points on the FSW eligibility point’s grid, and meet Canada’s basic admissibility requirements.
