Six selection factors
If you meet all the conditions set out in the minimum requirements, we will assess your application based on the selection factors in the federal skilled worker points grid
The selection factors are:
your skills in English and/or French (Canada’s two official languages),
your work experience,
whether you have a valid job offer, and
your adaptability (how well you are likely to settle here).
Proof of funds
You must show that you have enough money to support yourself and your family after you arrive in Canada, unless you:
are currently able to legally work in Canada, and
have a valid job offer from an employer in Canada.
If you are married or live with a common-law foreign national partner in Canada, and that person also meets the above conditions, you can decide which one of you will apply under Express Entry as a principal applicant.
