Arranged Employment is one of the Fast-track Options Under the Federal Skilled Worker Category of Immigration

Arranged Employment is possible when a Canadian employer extends an offer of full-time permanent employment in Canada to a foreign skilled worker. The foreign skilled worker’s Canadian Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa will be expedited so that the worker can come to Canada and start working for the Canadian employer quickly.

Arranged Employment is one of ways to qualify for a Canada Permanent Resident Visa through the Federal Skilled Worker category of immigration. It also provides the Federal Skilled Worker applicant with up to an additional 10 points towards Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s (CIC) selection factor requirement of 67 points.

These points are awarded under the Arranged Employment Factor as follows:

Permanent job offer from a Canadian employer, approved by the Canadian Government Department of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC): 10 points


Permanent job offer from a Canadian employer, without the necessity of HRSDC approval, if, at the time of applying for the Permanent Resident Visa, the applicant is employed in Canada by the same employer, on one of the Temporary Work Permits that allow for arranged employment: 10 points.

An additional 5 points may also be awarded under the Adaptability Factor.
