Check Your Eligibility

Canada is constantly in need of skilled immigrants who can support the economic growth of their nation. One of the main programs under Canada immigration is the Express Entry program, through which you must apply for a Canada PR Visa if you wish to relocate to Canada as a skilled worker. It is the PR Visa immigration method that moves the fastest. It oversees the immigrant profiles for the three federal immigration programs listed below:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)

  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)

  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

What is the minimum number of points needed for a permanent resident visa to Canada?

In order to apply for a PR visa through the Express Entry program, you must receive a score of 67 out of 100. You can register for the express entrance program and create a profile once you have 67 points and fulfilled the following minimum requirements:

  • Language Skills

    For one official language, you must achieve at least CLB (Canadian Language Benchmark) level 7 in each of the four domains (Speaking, Reading, Writing, and Listening). In the English language section of the IELTS, the candidate must get six points per band.
