New Points System for Canadian Immigration

Under the recent changes in the Federal Skilled Workers submission for Permanent Residents application for Canada brought about by the Ministerial Instructions, in print last November 28 2008, to be qualified you have to have as a minimum 1 year work experience under the list of 38 Highly Demanded Occupations.

To be victorious in your immigration request you have to be capable of passing Citizenship and Immigration Canada's, selection criteria or what is usually known as the "Points System".

Score requirement of Canada's points system was reduced from 75 to 67 points on 18 September 2003. This means a substantial boost in the number of people who meet up the Canada visa requirement for the Canadian skilled worker and Professional Category. The earlier requirement of 75 points from 28 June 2002 predestined that even very qualified people did not achieve adequate points.
To get the current 67 points pass mark you will be assessed foundation on your credentials which will be based on the following:

Selection Factor alongwith maximum Points:
1. Education: Maximum 25 points
2. Ability in English and/or French: Maximum 24 points
3. Experience: Maximum 21 points
4. Age: Maximum 10 points
5. Arranged employment in Canada: Maximum 10 points
6. Adaptability: Maximum 10 points
Total: 100 points
Pass marks: 67 points

As a minimum, you will obtain the 67 required points under the points system if you have as a minimum 4 years work experience (as a minimum 1 year under 38 high demand occupations and 3 years under Occupation categories O, A and B -Managerial, Professional, Trade and Skilled), a college or university Degree, 21 to 49 years old, can prove that you are proficient in either English or French, for instance IELTS score result.

Since not all applicants have the same qualifications and conditions, it is predictable that an applicant will meet problems in achieving the necessary pass mark.

If a candidate does not attain the required pass mark there are adaptability points, for instance, any relative in Canada that he or she can explore added points.

I would like to give you some show stoppers so you can take a look at your individual’s circumstances and see if there is something you can still do to make stronger your immigration case.

The usual problems regarding work experience are:
1. Lacking work experience.
2. Have work experience but:
a) Incorrect job title
b) Incorrect job description
c) Too many dissimilar jobs with not sufficient work experience in any one occupation to qualify.
