Federal Skilled Worker Program

The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) is the most standard immigration stream in the complete Express Entry program. It is solely designed for working professionals whose occupation is in-demand in any or all of Canada and many provinces. Applicants are evaluated across a range of criteria for their abilities and potential. Skill and professional expertise as well as experience are the primary concerns of the FSWP.

Please do not confuse, the selection criteria under the FSW with point system under Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) – Express Entry points Criteria.

Total marks are 100 and current pass-mark is 67 points.

Out of the 28 points, one can claim up-to 24 points under IELTS and remaining 4 points under French Language factor. This is a situation where the applicant is filing the application with English as the first language. Applicants with high level of English language proficiency can claim all the 24 points.

    • An applicant must score a minimum proficiency in each of the four language skills, speaking, listening, reading and writing – Canadian Language Benchmark 7 (CLB 7) level for English in order to qualify for the Federal Skilled Worker Class(FSWC) program.
    • CLB 7 is equivalent to scoring 6 bands in each module on the IELTS GENERAL pattern examination.
    • For the French language requirement, NCLC 7 is equivalent to scoring 309, 248, 206 and 309 on the speaking, listening, reading and writing modules of the Test d'evaluation de francais (TEF), respectively.
    • 4 points are awarded for each of the four language abilities, meaning that all candidates that meet the mandatory minimums on all language abilities will have at least 16 points.
    • Applicants will be awarded one extra point for each language ability for which they score CLB 8 or NCLC 8 and two extra points if they score CLB 9 or NCLC 9 (for a maximum of 24 points under English language factor).
    • The IELTS equivalent to CLB 8 is 7.5, 6.5, 6.5 and 6.5 on Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking. The TEF equivalent to NCLC 8 is 349, 280, 233, and 349 on Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking, respectively. Getting these scores will mean that 5 points are awarded for each of the four language abilities, meaning that all candidates that meet these criteria can claim a maximum of 20 points.
    • The IELTS equivalent to CLB 9 is 7.5, 6.5, 6.5, and 6.5 on Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking. The TEF equivalent to NCLC 9 is 349, 280, 233, and 349 on Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking, respectively. This means that to claim 24 points under the English language factor, the applicant MUST claim AT LEAST 8.0, 7.0, 7.0, and 7.0 on Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking, respectively. 6 points are awarded for each of the four language abilities, meaning that all candidates that meet these criteria can claim a maximum of 24 points.

I was literally bored and tired of resending applications and getting them rejected every time, but stark visas came to me as a bolt from the blue. This migration organization got me through the application getting granted and the interview went well. The members are really genial enough.

The stark visas are ideal for availing urgent migration services. The application gets granted fast and only the exact number of official documents is required here for the necessary legal verification. Faster application process that too hassle free is a bigger perk in this case.
