Numerous Indians, both young and old fantasize about relocating to Canada in hopes of a luxurious lifestyle. Though Canada, in comparison to India is definitely a better place to live and work in, most Indians are unaware that IRCC and the Canadian government have formulated strict immigration rules to ensure that only the best of all applicants are able to receive the immigration and permanent residency status of Canada.

In 2015, the Canadian government framed and introduced the Express Entry Program to facilitate hassle-free immigration of skilled people who could meet its ever-growing demand of trained and qualified professionals.

Needless to say, the Canada Express Entry program is World’s fastest and easiest way to move to an international destination from India.

If an Indian candidate is educated and has relevant work experience, there are three schemes under the Express Entry Program that can be of great benefit for his/her immigration purposes.

  1. Federal Skilled Workers Program
  2. Federal Skilled Experience Program  and
  3. Federal Skilled Trades Program.

What is the 67 point system for immigration to Canada?

For the Federal Skilled Workers Scheme of the Express Entry Program, IRCC makes use of “six pre-defined selection factors” to analyse the eligibility of each applicant applying for emigration to Canada.

All applying candidates are allotted points for each of the six selection parameters and the cumulative score is calculated out of 100.

Only those candidates who are able to score minimum 67 points out of the total 100 for the six selection factors become eligible to apply for immigration to Canada via the Federal Skilled Workers Scheme of the Express Entry Program.

This clearly means that a candidate is considered capable for relocation to Canada if and only if his profile statistics for selection parameters fetch him points more than or equal to the minimum qualification benchmark of 67 points.

Thus, for immigration via the skilled workers program, a candidate must be able to score at least 67 points to be eligible to even apply for emigration to Canada.

This minimum threshold value is commonly referred to as the “67 point system” for immigration and permanent residency of Canada.

Any candidate who dreams of immigrating to Canada must analyse his/her personal and professional details to ensure he/she is able to score the minimum required 67 points to hold a chance to receive the ITA (Invitation to Apply)  for Canadian PR.
