Backgrounder — Information for Applicants to the New Federal Skilled Worker Program



The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) selects immigrants based on their ability to succeed economically in Canada. After meeting eligibility requirements, applicants are assessed against selection criteria, also known as the “points grid.” There are 100 points available to applicants, with points awarded for official language abilities, age, education, work experience, employment already arranged in Canada, and adaptability. The current pass mark is 67.

After a thorough review of relevant research, an extensive program evaluation, stakeholder and public consultations, research and study of best practices in other immigrant-receiving countries, improvements to the FSWP were announced in December 2012. These improvements will come into force on May 4, 2013.

A pause on the intake of most new FSWP applications has been in place since July 1, 2012, except for those with a qualifying job offer and those who applying under the PhD stream. The pause will be lifted and an eligible occupations stream re-established on May 4, 2013.

While Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will not be accepting applications for the 24 eligible occupations until May 4, 2013, there are some new requirements that applicants can start preparing for, such as language tests and foreign educational credential assessments. The complete application process, featuring the new selection criteria, will be available on CIC's website by May 4, 2013.

All individuals who are considering applying on or after May 4 should be aware that if their application does not meet the new criteria, it will not be processed. A prospective applicant should ensure they meet at least one of the following requirements:

-They have at least one year of continuous work experience in one of the 24 eligible occupations;
-They have a qualifying offer of arranged employment (*note changes to the arranged employment process were previously published in this web notice); or
- They are eligible to apply through the PhD stream.

If prospective applicants are confident that they meet at least one of the above requirements, they must also meet the minimum language threshold and obtain an educational credential assessment (if submitting a foreign educational credential).

Eligible Occupations List

The eligible occupations stream will have an overall cap of 5,000 new applications and sub-caps of 300 applications in each of the 24 occupations on the list.

Eligible occupations (with their corresponding 2011 National Occupation Classification code):

0211 Engineering managers
1112 Financial and investment analysts
2113 Geoscientists and oceanographers
2131 Civil engineers
2132 Mechanical engineers
2134 Chemical engineers
2143 Mining engineers
2144 Geological engineers
2145 Petroleum engineers
2146 Aerospace engineers
2147 Computer engineers (except software engineers/designers)
2154 Land surveyors
2174 Computer programmers and interactive media developers
2243 Industrial instrument technicians and mechanics
2263 Inspectors in public and environmental health and occupational health and safety
3141 Audiologists and speech-language pathologists
3142 Physiotherapists
3143 Occupational Therapists
3211 Medical laboratory technologists
3212 Medical laboratory technicians and pathologists' assistants
3214 Respiratory therapists, clinical perfusionists and cardiopulmonary technologists

Conduct Educational Credential Assessments for Federal Skilled Worker Program Released


With the re-opening date approaching, future applicants should be aware of several key elements that will have an effect on the application process:

A new eligible occupations list, with a total of 24 occupations;

An overall cap of 5,000 new applications for all eligible occupations, including a sub-cap of 300 new applications for each eligible occupation;

Four organizations have been designated to conduct educational credential assessments (mandatory for applicants submitting foreign educational credentials); and

Applicants must show proof that they meet the minimum threshold of Canadian Language Benchmark 7 in all four language skill areas: speaking, reading, writing and oral comprehension.

Educational Credential Assessment (ECA)

Another important change that takes effect on May 4, 2013, is the introduction of the educational credential assessment (ECA). Prospective applicants may start the process of getting an ECA before May 4 if they are planning to submit a foreign educational credential. However, applicants should keep in mind the other program eligibility requirements listed above, i.e. whether they have a qualifying offer of arranged employment or are applying under the PhD stream or eligible occupations stream; and if they meet the minimum language threshold through a designated third-party test. Applicants who have Canadian educational credentials do not need to get an ECA, unless they are also submitting a foreign educational credential in support of their application.

The ECA process will help determine if the foreign educational credential is authentic and equivalent to a completed credential in Canada. For prospective applicants, the ECA can provide a realistic understanding of how their foreign educational credentials are likely to be recognized in Canada.

As of April 17, 2013, four organizations have been designated by the Minister to provide ECA reports for purposes of immigrating to Canada under the FSWP. Additional organizations may be designated by CIC in the future. The designated organizations are:

- Comparative Education Service: University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies;
- International Credential Assessment Service of Canada;
- World Education Services; and,
- Medical Council of Canada.

Thanks for this post.

Each EAC has its own process, its own processing time and its own processing fees:


For example, this is the process for World Education Services (the process is likely the same for all EACs):




This is how long World Education Services claims it will take:


The standard processing time is seven (7) business days after receipt, review and approval of all documents and payment in full. If additional research, correspondence or verification is required, the evaluation will take longer. We recommend that you start the process as early as possible and submit all documents as specified in order to meet application deadlines.



These are the Services and Fees offered by World Education Services:

FSWP CREDENTIAL ASSESSMENT PACKAGE ( Cdn. $180 )
- Two Credential Assessment Reports sample
  (one for you and one for CIC submission)
- An electronic copy of your report viewable by CIC
- Storage of your report and verified transcripts for future use

IMPORTANT NOTE: CIC will update application kits and web materials before the new FSWP is launched on May 4, 2013. Prospective applicants who wish to get a head start on their application can proceed with the steps and information outlined above but should check the CIC website for new FSWP application forms.

Dependent on what country you are from, different documents might be required to be submitted to the ECA for your education to be assessed.

Here is an example of what documents exactly will be required by an ECA and what procedure is to be followed for your particular country:

REQUIRED DOCUMENTS


**NOTE, the above example is for the World Education Services ECA. You can check out the other approved ECAs here:

- Comparative Education Service: University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies;
- International Credential Assessment Service of Canada, and;
- Medical Council of Canada.

Does anyone know how would I be able to determine if or when the 300 cap/limit is filled? I would want to know this before I submit my application.

But if thats indeed the case, how will that help CIC with the backlog of applications? Won't people simply still be submitting FSW applications, not knowing the limit has already been reached?

Also, is the cap/limit based on the first 300 CORRECTLY COMPLETED application forms submitted....or is it just the first 300 application forms submitted?

The reason I ask is, someone could deliberately submit an incorrect/incomplete form to CIC, CIC would then reject the form and tell the person to complete it correctly and resubmit the form before they will process it........so essentially, that person would have held their place in the FSW queue while the person corrects/complete the FSW form for re-submission.

For example, someone could (mistakely/deliberately) submit their FSW application forms to CIC without the necessary IELTS results attached. Will CIC simply hold that person's place in the FSW queue until the IELTS results are sent?
