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.
