A. Education and Training

The principal applicant's education points are calculated according to documented proof of completed post secondary education and/or training programs from a nationally or provincially recognized institution or regulatory body. The principal applicant must include diplomas, certificates or degrees for any education or training with their complete transcripts.

(Maximum total points = 23)

Education and Training Completed

Please Note: If you have more than one degree/diploma/certificate, the education required for the occupation you selected must be provided and this is the education that you will get points for. If the education that you are claiming points for was obtained outside of Canada, you must provide an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) for that education. To understand Canada's immigration requirements for education for your occupation, please visit Determine Your National Occupation

An ECA is not needed for your education if it was obtained at a post-secondary institution in Canada.

B. Skilled Work Experience

The principal applicant's work experience points are calculated according to documented proof of skilled work experience (NOC 0, A, B) in their intended occupation in the last ten years. Documentation must include a letter of reference from the supervisor or Human Resources officer for each work experience listed that is printed on company letterhead that states the job title, job duties, wage and duration of employment. Other documentation that is required to prove skilled work experience is listed on Occupations In-Demand or Express Entry category applicant must allocate points for their work experience in their chosen EOI NOC code of occupation only.

(Maximum total points = 15)

Work experience gained over the last ten years is weighted. Applicants get two points for each year worked in the intended occupation in the most recent five years, and one point for each year from the six to ten year period prior to applying, up to a maximum of 15 points.

(A) Work experience during the most recent five years prior to application
(B) Work Experience during the six to ten year period prior to application

e.g., If an application is submitted on 1-Jan-2014, points for experience gained during the most recent five years would be from 2009-2013, and points for experience gained during the six to ten year period would be from 2004-2008.
