  • A minimum of 6 in your IELTS is required to qualify for any immigration programs to Canada. This is equivalent to CLB(Canadian Language Benchmark) Band 7. You have to have Band 7 in the IELTS examination.

    The minimum points to qualify for Express Entry in Canada will vary based on the program to which you belong. There are three programs as mentioned below.
    1. The Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
    2. The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP
    3. The Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

    For Federal Skilled Trades Class or Canadian Experience Class, no minimum points are required.

    To immigrate to Canada under the Federal Skilled Worker Class, you need to score 67 out of 100 points These points are calculated on various factors like your age, work experience, education, language skills, adaptability, etc.
    The eligibility criteria for the express Entry are:
    1. IELTS Score. You can get up to 150 once you qualify in IELTS.
    2. Educational qualifications: Maximum number of points one can obtain with a PhD is 140
    3. If you have any work experience in Canada you may get 70 points
    4. No age limit but no points once you cross 47 years. You will get up to 100 points in this case.

    Once the total score is calculated they will see the percentage. It should be a minimum of 67%.

    To have a better understanding about the entire process and the calculation of the points , you better contact a good agency which will help you in knowing the facts.
