FSWP (Federal Skilled Working program)

FSWP has been introduced specially for people who have the skills & the experience that the country needs. The main motive of FSWP is to help highly skilled workers relocate to Canada and to close the current gap in the labour market that the country is currently facing. 

With the fast decline in birth rate, earlier retirement age, and a general lack of local skilled workers to fill positions at the rapid rate of job creation, Canada has had to implement certain strategies that are not only beneficial to employers but the employees themselves.

You would need to meet 6 general factors for FSWP to be considered eligible, including language, education, work experience, age, employment, and adaptability. These major 6 factors are part of a 100-point grid used to assess eligibility for the Federal Skilled Worker Program. The current pass mark is 67 points.
