The Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC) is for people with specific types of work experience who want to live anywhere outside of Quebec. There is a Quebec Skilled Worker Class program for people who want to live in Quebec. These programs are for individuals who do not yet live or work in Canada.
ENTERING THE EXPRESS ENTRY POOL
Once you have met all of the qualifications for express entry through one of the Canadian immigration programs, you can create a profile for the Express Entry pool. At that time, your qualifications are ranked by the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).
This system assesses your value to Canada’s economy based on three factors:
CORE HUMAN CAPITAL
This refers to your age, education level, language ability and Canadian work experience. People between the ages of 20 and 29 get the most points for the age category. You also get a point boost if you have a university, master’s or doctoral degree. Speaking fluent English and French will raise your value, and you get additional points if you have 1 to 5 years of Canadian work experience.
