Learn about the visa lottery
The visa lottery is a random selection process that determines who can apply for Canadian permanent residence. It is open to individuals from any country of the world who meet certain criteria, including having an education or work experience in one of 59 eligible occupations and being able to speak either English or French.
The points system considers age, education, language skills and work experience to rank applicants in order of their likelihood for success. An applicant’s profile is assigned points according to these factors. For example, someone aged 25 with a bachelor’s degree would have more points than someone aged 45 with no post-secondary education. Applicants are then selected based on their total number of points, with the highest total ranking first.
Check your eligibility
To be eligible for the visa lottery you must:
– Be 18 or older;
– Be a citizen or permanent resident of one of the qualifying countries;
– Have a high school diploma, have completed two years of college, or have three years of work experience in your chosen field. – You can submit an application every year until you are selected and awarded the opportunity to live and work in Canada.
– You can apply for this opportunity through a paper form at www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilledworker-application-form/index.asp
