The point system is one of the selection tools used to determine if you are
eligible to apply for Immigration to Canada. The points are assessed on six main
factors including age, education, work experience, language ability and
adaptability. Learn more about each factor by clicking on it.
The maximum possible score is 100. If your score is the same or higher than
the pass mark, then you may qualify to immigrate to Canada in the selected
category. The skilled workers category requires requires the highest pass mark
of at least 67 points. Review the information about immigrating to Canada in
different immigration categories and decide if you want to apply. The minimum
pass mark is currently 35 points for business immigration categories (self
employed, investors and entrepreneurs). The pass mark may change, so make sure
you visit this site regularly if you are considering immigrating to Canada.
If your score is lower than the pass mark in the corresponding category, you
are not likely to qualify to immigrate to Canada. We recommend that you do not
apply at this time. However, you can still apply if you believe there are other
factors that would show that you are able to establish yourself in Canada and
support your dependants. Send a detailed letter with your application explaining
why you think you are able to become economically established in Canada. Include
any documents that support your claim.
If you meet the minimum point required to
immigrate to Canada, you can complete the
Canadian immigration evaluation
form and provide more details about your self. An immigration consultant will
evaluate your case and get back to you. Once you have immigrated to Canada
(under any of the above categories) you and your dependants will be eligible to
work, live and study in Canada. You may also apply to Canadian citizenship
within 3 years.
