Title: Canada Federal Skilled Worker


Canada PR Federal skilled worker visa is designed
for professionals with the qualifications, skills
or experiences to fill Canada's skill shortages
and contribute to the Canadian economy. Applicant
s for this visa must demonstrate that they meet
the minimum visa requirement which includes
having work experience one year of which should
be in a designated occupation, a job offer from a
Canadian employer, or be a foreign worker or
student currently living in Canada. Additionally,
applicants are required to meet the points based
assessment. The Canada Immigration or Canada PR
Skilled Worker Visa points selection system
requires a pass mark of 67 out of 100 points and
is assessed on six main factors including age,
education, work experience, language ability,
adaptability and arranged employment in
canada. Successful applicants are granted a
permanent residence visa and are entitled to live
and work in Canada without any restrictions.
Educational Credential Assessment
  • Prospective applicants need to start the process
    of getting an Educational Credential A Applicants
    should meet the other program eligibility
  • A qualifying offer of arranged employment or are
    applying under the PhD stream or eligible
    occupations stream
  •     Meet the minimum language threshold through a
    designated third-party test.
  • Applicants who have Canadian educational
    credentials do not need to get an ECA, unless
    they are also submitting a foreign educational
    credential in support of their application.
  • The ECA process will help determine if the
    foreign educational credential is authentic and
    equivalent to a completed credential in Canada.
    For prospective applicants, the ECA can provide a
    realistic understanding of how their foreign
    educational credentials are likely to be
    recognized in Canada.
  • Four organizations have been designated by the
    Minister to provide ECA reports for purposes of
    immigrating to Canada under the FSWP. Additional
    organizations may be designated by CIC in the
    future. The designated organizations are

  • Comparative Education Service
  • International Credential Assessment Service of
  • World Education Services
  • Medical Council of Canada.
  • Assessment Fees
  • ICAC CAD 150 to 350 FSW package
  • WES CAD 220 to 440
  • CES  CAD 250 to 400
  • The Medical Council of Canada has been designated
    only for those principal applicants who intend to
    apply with specialist physician (2011 National
    Occupation Classification NOC code 3111) or
    general practitioner/family physician
    (2011 NOC code 3112) as their primary occupation
    in their FSWP application. Neither NOC code 3111
    nor 3112 is on the eligible occupations list that
    takes effect on May 4, so this will only affect
    those applying under the PhD stream or with a
    qualifying job offer based on those NOC codes.
  • Note CIC will only accept ECA reports issued
    after the date the organization was designated by
    CIC to provide ECA reports for immigration
    purposes (i.e. April 17, 2013).
