Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) is one of the federal economic immigration programs under Express Entry for applicants who have paid, continuous, and full-time (or part-time equivalent) skilled work experience. Applicants are assessed based on factors such as age, education, language skills, and work experience through the points-based Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). If approved, applicants and their families can live, work, study, and access healthcare and other social benefits in Canada.
To be eligible under FSW program, applicants need to score at least 67 points out of 100 based on the Six Selection Factor Points assessment. Applicants who also meet or exceed the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut-off score will then be invited to apply.
As long as you meet the minimum requirements, we can create and launch your Express Entry profile to enter the pool.
Once an ITA (Invitation to Apply) is received, we will have 60 days to prepare for the permanent residence application.
We can submit the application online as soon as the eAPR (Electronic Application for Permanent Residence) is completed with all supporting documents.
We will process your case as soon as we receive all supporting documents. The processing time for Express Entry applications is generally 6 months per the IRCC.
Due to processing delays and staff shortages caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the 6-month processing time cannot be guaranteed. However, Express Entry programs still enjoy shorter processing durations than other types of applications.
