Federal Skilled Worker

The Process

The Federal Skilled Workers (FSW) Program is the Government of Canada’s main selection system for skilled immigration. The goal of the program is to:

  • Select highly skilled immigrants whose high human capital enables them to contribute to Canada’s long-term national and structural labour market needs, in support of a strong and prosperous Canadian economy.
  • Identify prospective immigrants (based on point system) with the ability to establish economically in Canada, based on their human capital (education, skilled work experience, language skills, etc.), with a minimum language threshold and a third-party foreign educational credential assessment prior to application.

The selection and processing involve the granting of permanent residence to qualified applicants, as well as the refusal of unqualified applicants.
