How to qualify under Ontario FSSW provincial stream

Receiving an invitation to apply will not guarantee your nomination. One may have to demonstrate the following eligibility requirements:

  • Qualify for the Canadian Experience Class or the Federal Skilled Worker Program. These federal immigration programs require applicants to have adequate work experience in any skilled occupation.
  • A minimum Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) of at least 7 in French and 6 in English is also required.
  • Adequate proof of finance and enough funds to cover settlement costs in Ontario.
