    In this program, it is mandatory for the Foreign Skilled Workers to meet the eligibility criteria on the basis of factors including:

    • Age
    • Education (as per Canadian Education Standards)
    • Language Proficiency
    • Work Experience
    • Having a valid job offer
    • Adaptability

    These 6 factors are a part of a 100-point grid, which is used to check the eligibility of the candidate for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP). Out of 100-point, it is mandatory for the applicant to score a minimum of 67-points, in order to submit an application for a Canadian Permanent Residence Visa.

    Once the Skilled Worker meets the eligibility criteria of the Federal Skilled Worker Program and submits an Express Entry profile, IRCC uses Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) Score to rank the profile among other skilled workers.

    And, more CRS Score will give high rank to the profile into the Express Entry Pool, which increases chances of receiving an invitation from IRCC to apply for a Canadian Permanent Residence Visa.
