Federal Skilled Classes
The federal skilled worker class is for professional workers. Applicants of the FSW program become so based on the qualification. In order to qualify as a FSW, applicants must have 67 points which is calculated by assessing your language skills, your university education, work experience, and your age.
The primary desirable group for applicants to meet the requirements are workers who are between the ages of 25 – 35. To get maximum score for age, you must be between the ages of 18-35. After you reach 35 years of age, your scores start to decline and once you reach 45 where you will get a point or 2, you no longer are classified as a benefit to Canada. The years you are contributing economic to Canada will be less and the cost to Canadians will start to go higher and higher.
Many applicants who apply under the FSW program are individuals who have already married and started raising a family. Most families want to make life better for their children so they start looking at options for raising them in another country. A points grid for this program is provided below.
