One option you may have, in order to obtain a permanent residence status in Canada, is through the Federal Skilled Workers program. In addition to the basic requirements, there is a point system where you must receive a score of 67 out of a maximum of 100 in order to apply. There are six selection factors that you will be assessed upon.
The first is your English and/or French skills. This category tests your knowledge in one or both of Canada’s official languages. Points will be given for your ability to speak, read, write, and listen. This test will be done by an agency approved by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and the results must be sent in with your application.
