The Federal Skilled Worker program is geared towards attracting skilled professionals from around the world to work in Canada and obtain their Permanent Residence in Canada.
In order to qualify, your intended profession in Canada needs to be on a list of eligible occupations and you must meet all the requirements of the position.
Further, Citizenship and Immigration Canada is only accepting 25,000 applications per year in total. Each occupation also has its own individual cap. If you are interested in applying under this program, you should act fast to ensure your application is submitted prior to the caps filling up.

On the other hand, if your score is below 67 points, you will not be eligible to come to Canada as a Federal Skilled Worker. In this case, you should not apply. However, you can apply again at another time when you know that when your application is assessed you will likely score at least 67 points.
When assessing your application based on the six selection factors mentioned above, you should note that you can consider your spouse or common-law partner as part of the application. This means that if you are married or in a Common-law relationship, your Spouse or your Common-law partner can be the Principal Applicant on the Federal Skilled Worker application. This way, if you do not meet the requirements of 67 points when assessing the selection factors, your partner can be Principal Applicant instead if he/she is more likely to meet the 67-point requirement.
