Language proficiency for skilled workers in Canada

The official languages of Canada are English and French. Before submitting your application to be a skilled worker, you must take a language proficiency test and submit those results with the rest of your documents. Should you meet the minimum requirements, your language skills will be graded in the skilled worker points grid.

Arranged employment for skilled workers in Canada

An applicant who already has an offer of permanent employment from a Canadian employer is more likely to be approved as a federal skilled worker in Canada. In some cases applicants will already be working in Canada, in which case they will need a valid temporary work permit Canada and a permanent job offer from their current employer. Where the applicant is not currently working in Canada, they will need to show that a prospective employer has made an offer to hire on an indeterminate basis.  Some people who found this page helpful also viewed Canada Post Graduate Work Permit information for further advice. 

Work experience for Canada skilled workers

Applicants who don’t already have an offer of arranged employment can still be considered if they have one year of continuous full-time paid work in one of the eligible occupations, which include:

  • Restaurant and food service managers
  • Biologists and related scientists
  • Architects
  • Plumbers and industrial electricians
  • Specialist and family physicians

Canada has a grading system for managerial, professional and technical occupations. To find out about how occupations and trades are graded in Canada contact Brighter Visas.

Points system

Applicants who meet the minimum requirements will have their skilled worker Canada application assessed on a points basis. The selection factors are:

  • Education
  • Proficiency in English and French
  • Work experience
  • Age
  • Whether you have arranged employment in Canada
  • Your adaptability

An applicant’s financial resources will also be considered.

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
