Canada Federal Skilled Worker Program

Being an immigrant-friendly nation, Canada has plenty of work opportunities for migrants. With more than 60 programs launched by the Canadian government for aspiring immigrants, the Federal Skilled Worker Program is one of the safest and fastest methods to apply for Canada PR visa. The eligibility of the candidate for the Canada Permanent Resident Visa with FSWP is determined by the Canada Express Entry Point calculator. Only people who fall into the category of 'Skilled Occupation' can apply for Canada PR visas through this program.

Every participant needs to score at least 67 from a total of 100 points to become eligible for the PR round. The skilled worker program is specially designed for foreigners who possess special skills and intend to find a job in Canada and settle down in the country for good. Based on your age, work experience, qualification credentials, and knowledge of English and French language; the final CRS score is calculated. This score decides whether you get the invitation to apply (ITA) for the Canada PR visa.

Candidates who pass the test and meet the minimum eligibility score get Canada Permanent Resident visa. They also earn the opportunity to live and work in this country. Note that the span of Canada PR visa is only five years.

Benefits of the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)

The major advantage of FSWP is that the candidate doesn't need a Canadian work permit or special job offer to migrate to the country. Without being sponsored by a Canadian employer, immigrants can travel to Canada and find a job with the Federal Skilled Worker Program.
