    OR
  2. If you plan to complete an Express Entry profile, enter your current age.

Enter the highest level of education for which you:

  1. earned a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate or
  2. had an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) if you did your study outside Canada. (ECAs must be from an approved agency, in the last five years)

Note: a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate must either have been earned at an accredited Canadian university, college, trade or technical school, or other institute in Canada. Distance learning counts for education points, but not for bonus points in your profile or application.

Note: to answer yes:

  1. English or French as a Second Language must not have made up more than half your study
  2. you must not have studied under an award that required you to return to your home country after graduation to apply your skills and knowledge
  3. you must have studied at a school within Canada (foreign campuses don’t count)
  4. you had to be enrolled full time for at least eight months, unless you completed the study or training program (in whole or in part) between March 2020 and August 2022
  5. you had to have been physically present in Canada for at least eight months, unless you completed the study or training program (in whole or in part) between March 2020 and August 2022

6) Work Experience

It must have been paid and full-time (or an equal amount in part-time).

Note: In Canada, the National Occupational Classification (NOC) is the official list of all the jobs in the Canadian labour market. It describes each job according to the training, education, experience and responsibilities (TEER) needed to work in the job.

"Skilled work" in the NOC is TEER 0, 1, 2 or 3 category jobs:

If you aren’t sure of the NOC TEER category for this job, you can find your NOC.

It must have been paid, full-time (or an equal amount in part-time), and in only one occupation (NOC TEER category 0, 1, 2 or 3).

Note: A certificate of qualification lets people work in some skilled trades in Canada. Only the provinces, territories and a federal body can issue these certificates. To get one, a person must have them assess their training, trade experience and skills to and then pass a certification exam.

People usually have to go to the province or territory to be assessed. They may also need experience and training from an employer in Canada.

This isn’t the same as a nomination from a province or territory.

Additional Points

A valid job offer must be

  1. full-time
  2. in a skilled job listed as TEER 0, 1, 2 or 3 in the 2021 National Occupational Classification
  3. supported by a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or exempt from needing one
  4. for one year from the time you become a permanent resident

A job offer isn’t valid if your employer is:

  1. an embassy, high commission or consulate in Canada or
  2. on the list of ineligible employers.

Whether an offer is valid or not also depends on different factors, depending on your case. See a full list of criteria for valid job offers.

Find out your job’s TEER if you don’t know.

Note: to answer yes, the brother or sister must be:

  1. 18 years old or older
  2. related to you or your partner by blood, marriage, common-law partnership or adoption
  3. have a parent in common with you or your partner

A brother or sister is related to you by:

  1. blood (biological)
  2. adoption
  3. marriage (step-brother or step-sister)

  1. earned a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate; or
  2. had an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA)? (ECAs must be from an approved agency, in the last five years)

To get the correct number of points, make sure you choose the answer that best reflects your case. For example:

If you have TWO Bachelor’s degrees, or one Bachelor’s AND a two year college diploma, choose – “Two or more certificates, diplomas, or degrees. One must be for a program of three or more years.”

It must have been paid, full-time (or an equal amount in part-time), and in one or more NOC TEER category 0, 1, 2, or 3 jobs.

Test results must be less than two years old.
