Federal Skilled Worker Program

The Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) program is designed by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to improve the economic success rate of skilled worker immigrants, maintain the quantity of skilled worker immigrants and improve the transparency of the selection process. The FSWP is a component of the Express Entry system.
