There are many paths you can take to immigrate to Canada, some simpler or more complex than others. But the Canada immigration program that stands out is the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) for skilled workers.
The Federal Skilled Worker Program is designed for foreign nationals with particular academic and professional skills to come to Canada for work, with a pathway to permanent residency for the entire family. Some of the benefits of permanent residency include:
Registering with Canada’s free healthcare system
Subsidized education for children up to a certain age
The ability to live, work and study anywhere in Canada
Build a life in a stable economic and social environment
The selection of candidates for the Federal Skilled Worker Program is done through the Express Entry Program. The Express Entry Program is basically the ‘pool and points’ system that Canada’s immigration authorities use to select the most suitable Federal Skilled Worker Program candidates.

To become eligible for the Federal Skilled Worker Program and apply for the visa, you need to meet some criteria:
You must score a minimum 67 points on your immigration profile
You must have work experience in a field listed on the National Occupational Classification (NOC) list
You must meet language proficiency requirements in English or French
The higher your education and level of work experience, the higher your score will be. However, we recommend using an immigration professional to find out further options and to help you obtain the score you need.
