This program has traditionally been one of the most popular categories for economic immigration. Through the FSWP, Canada accepts skilled immigrants who possess skilled work experience which is required to actively take part and contribute to the Canadian economy. The selection of skilled workers under this program is points based and it evaluates official language proficiency, education, work experience, age, arranged employment in Canada and adaptability factors.

This program is now managed by IRCC under the Express Entry system. Most complete applications submitted under Express Entry are processed by IRCC within six months or less.
