Evaluation of the Federal Skilled Worker program

Evaluation Division
Research and Evaluation
August 2010

The evaluation of the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), which addressed a series of evaluation issues and questions related to program relevance, design, implementation and  impact, is focused on the period after introduction of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) in 2002 and related regulations and before the implementation of the Ministerial Instructions (in 2008). More specifically, the objectives of this evaluation are to assess: Program design and implementation, including timeliness, consistency and transparency of selection; and the impact of the program to date at the immediate and intermediate outcome levels, including an assessment of the economic establishment of skilled workers.

In February, 2011, Citizenship and Immigration Canada began holding consultations on proposals to update the FSWP. An online consultation component will allow the general public and stakeholders to direct their comments on the proposals.
