Federal program

Anyone wishing to apply through the SKILLED WORKER Federal Workforce Program must create a profile on the Immigration Canada website and in the EXPRESS ENTRY system.

Applicants who have scored at least 67 points out of the initial 100 points will be placed in the pool or virtual pool of this program. This pool consists of three sub-categories. In this article, we review the Federal Skilled Worker program.

Who is in this subset?
This subset is for people who have at least one year of education, language skills and professional experience in Knock 0, A, B in their home country and want to immigrate to Canada. Individuals who do not have Canadian work experience (either through a PGWP or work visa) and have not obtained a certificate of qualification.


At least one year of continuous work experience over the past 10 years (in NOC occupations 0, A or B), in Canada or another country.

Language skills (CLB 7 in every 4 abilities).

Education (Canadian high school diploma, diploma or diploma, or foreign equivalent).

And a score of 67 or higher on the Federal Skilled Worker Score Network (which measures six selection factors: language skills, education, work experience, age, regular employment, adjustment).
