Canada Federal skilled workers

The Canadian government has always encouraged talented, skilled, qualified and experienced individuals across the world to study, work and settle in their country.

Along with leading to increase in the number of people with varied skills and capabilities in this country, it is also a great chance for the migrating individuals to enrich their skills, increase their adaptability and achieve new milestones of success in their career and life.

And therefore Canada is the most preferred destination for many around the world to work, with the rising number of migrants every year. Owing to this scenario, a situation of religious harmony has arisen in the country, which has further provided impetus to aspirants for migrating over there.

Also, immigration programs and systems have been developed by the Canadian government to carry out the process in the most systematic manner.

One such program is Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP). The migrants selected under this program are referred to as “Federal skilled workers”. Due to the need and importance of skilled and experienced people in the country, this program has become a very popular route for migrating to Canada.

FSWP is meant to bridge the gap between demand of required skills and the availability of the same. By inviting foreigners having numerous skills, the country seeks to accelerate the economic growth.

Who can apply?

All those who possess skills in any of the occupations from the pre-defined list i.e. National Occupational Classification (NOC) in regards to the FSWP have experience in the same and fulfil other requirements can be considered eligible to be selected for this program.

important consideration here is that skilled workers or professionals should not desire to live in Quebec, as a separate category of visa (separate program) applies to this region.

How to apply under this program?

With effect from 1 st January 2015, one cannot apply directly under the program. If anyone perceives himself/herself to be satisfying the eligibility criteria and rules of this program, they are required to create an online profile through the Express Entry System.

Registering and creating a profile is a way to show expression of interest to Canadian government and employers.

All the candidates under this system are first reviewed against eligibility criteria of the following three programs:

1) The Federal Skilled Worker Program,

2) The Federal Skilled Trades Program and

3) The Canadian Experience Class

Those who meet the criteria for any one of the above three programs are placed under an Express Entry pool of candidates.

Then, they are assessed on the basis of various parameters and given ranks under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) out of total 1200 points.

Then from all of them, the following candidates are selected:

1) Those who have a valid job offer from a Canadian employer

2) Those who have a provincial nomination from any of the provincial government

3) Those who have higher ranks

These selected candidates are issued the invitation to apply for permanent residency.
