Canada Green Card Lottery

In fact there is no concept of green card lottery for Canada. People around the world mistakenly say the word Green Card lottery of Canada instead of saying Immigration to Canada.

Canada do not offer lottery scheme like USA but it has its own points based system for immigration under skilled worker program. You have to qualify in certain factors for instance, age, education, experience in 38 occupations list and adaptability to get 67 points for Canada Immigration.

Despite the fact that Cnada has same living standards when compared to USA, Canada does not make a decision about it.

Is there a possibility that canadian government will anoounce green card lottery scheme like USA DV 2012

Dear Devon Lee,
This is unpredictable. But you may try federal skilled worker program

I got 68 frm the Skilled worker self-assessment. However, i scored 0 in both arranged employment and adaptability. Can i go ahead to lodge my application?

"If your mark from this test is the same or higher than the current pass mark, you may qualify to immigrate as a skilled worker".

Dear Waqas,
IELTS is not the only factor of Canadian Immigration. If your have experience in 29 required occupations and qualifying for 67 points than this score of IELTS is enough
