The Six Selection Factors
The Canadian Immigration Process includes an education requirement; this will help to form the basis on which a Federal Skilled Worker applicant will be accepted or refused.
As of May 2013, foreign educational credentials must be assessed by a designated Canadian organization; this will determine the Canadian equivalent of foreign credentials. If you have questions about the education requirement, our full-service Canadian immigration law firm can provide comprehensive assistance.

The maximum amount of points that can be awarded under the Language Skills Factor are 28; it is contingent on the applicant’s ability to speak English or French. Aptitude in a first language (English or French) can be awarded up to 24 points, and 4 points are awarded for a second language (English or French). Either one of Canada`s two official languages can be used by the Federal Skilled Workers Applicant as a first or second language.
Work Experience is an important factor awarded by Canadian Immigration Officers.
