FEDERAL SKILLED WORKER PROGRAM
If you are a professional with skilled work experience from any where in the world, this might be the right program for you.
Permanent Residence is accesible to skilled workers who can demonstrate an ability to integrate into the Canadian labour market.
In order to qualify under this program an applicant must meet minimum criteria assesed on factors such as age, education, language proficiency, work experience, adaptability, and in some cases arranged employment.
Applicants without Arranged Employment must prove that they have enough money to support themselves and their dependants for the first six months in Canada. It's thought that it will take most immigrants that long to establish themselves, find a job and start earning enough money to support their families without recourse to social assistance.
The minimum threshold requirement for language proficiency for FSWP applicants has been set at Canadian Language Benchmark level 7
