Canada chooses skilled immigrants as permanent residents based on their ability to settle in Canada and take part in our economy. There is a new system to manage how people with skilled work experience apply to immigrate to Canada. It is called Express Entry.

Basic eligibility – Federal skilled workers:

  • one year of continuous full-time (or an equal amount of continuous part-time) paid work experience
  • in one of the eligible occupations within the last ten years, OR
  • a valid offer of arranged employment, OR
  • an international student who is enrolled in a PhD program in Canada (or who graduated from a Canadian PhD program within the past 12 months).

In addition to meeting one of the categories above, you must also:

  • achieve Canadian Language Benchmark 7 on an official language test,
  • include either a completed Canadian educational credential or a completed foreign educational credential with an Educational Credential Assessment from an approved organization,
  • have at least one year of continuous full-time (or an equal amount in continuous part-time) paid work experience within the last ten years in the primary occupation you state in your application,
