Important Points to Consider:

Ensure your occupation is listed in the National Occupational Classification (NOC).

 

Scoring 67 points does not automatically secure a PR visa; however, it qualifies you to apply for Canadian PR through the Express Entry system.

 

After scoring 67 points, choose the appropriate immigration program based on your profile traits.

The options include:

1. Federal Skilled Trades Program

2. Federal Skilled Workers Program

3. Canadian Experience Class

4. Provincial Nominee Program (PNP Program)

5. Being accepted into the Express Entry pool does not guarantee an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence. To receive an invitation, you must have a high CRS Score.

6 Main Factors that Affect your Score

The Federal Skilled Workers Program employs a 6-factor selection process to determine scores and assess eligibility for Permanent Residency. These factors include:

1. Age (Maximum 12 points)

To qualify for the maximum 12 points in this category, individuals must be between 18 and 35 years old. Scores decrease for those above 35. Therefore, it is recommended to make citizenship and immigration decisions early in one’s career.
