Federal Skilled Worker Program

As the name implies, the Federal Skilled Worker Program covers applicants with either university education (professionals), who have demonstrated skills or experience in their respective profession or occupation and have the ability to independently adapt to Canadian workforce. Both self-employed and the employed persons can apply as Skilled worker, provided they satisfy the occupational requirements.

The selection is based on a Selection Grid and a Point system. The applicants are assessed on 6 factors on the Grid like Age, education, length of experience, proficiency in Official languages (English/ French), Arranged Employment and Adaptability. Based on the individual situation, points are awarded for each of these factors, as per the Points system. An applicant with a total score more than the Pass mark can apply.

Additional points are awarded for ‘Arranged employment‘ i.e. a job offer from a qualified Canadian employer.The Pass mark may be re-set by the department from time to time. The current pass mark is 67, out of a possible maximum of 100 points.The Selection factors are as follows:
