Canada Skilled Worker Immigration

The primary motive of Canada immigration is to welcome skilled immigrants who will contribute to the growth of Canada’s economy. The Skilled professionals who got settled down in Canada as permanent residents are the most valuable assets to Canada’s economy and strength for Canada’s workforce.

The successful applicants under the Skilled Worker Immigration programs will receive permanent residence visa for Canada which allows them to immigrate to Canada with their family.

You will have several options to be considered if you are a skilled professional or worker. If your preferred destination is Quebec, then the pathway for you and your family would be the Quebec Skilled Worker program. Similarly, you might be eligible to apply under the Federal Skilled Worker Class of Canada. Moreover, if you are planning particularly for a province to reside, then you can apply under the Provincial Nominee programs of Canada. Here are the pathways to immigrate to Canada:

Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)

CIC defines skilled workers as people selected based on their education, work experience, knowledge of English or French, and other criteria.

There are three economic immigration programs under the skilled workers:

  1. Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC): It’s for people who have specific work experience and intend to live in any province or territory outside of Quebec. You will need a minimum of 67 points to be eligible to apply under FSW by factors like education, age, work experience, language ability, adaptability, and arranged employment. The occupation list under FSW should fall under Skilled type O, A, and B.
  2. Federal Skilled Trade Class: This is a program for skilled workers who are qualified under Skilled Trades. The NOC under this program falls under the Skilled Type C. You must have a certificate of qualification in skilled trade issued by a province/territory, and have a full-time employment offer for a total of at least one year.
  3. Canadian Experience Class: This is an immigration program that allows individuals who have worked in Canada for at least one year (Continuously 12 months).

Provincial Nominee Program (PNP)

This immigration program allows Canadian provinces/territories to nominate people who wish to immigrate and settle down in Canada in a particular province. Every province/territory have created their skilled worker immigration programs with their criteria for the people who want to live and work in their choice of province/territory. PNPs are fast-track Canadian immigration programs that allow the participating applicants to receive a provincial nomination certificate. This nomination certificate prioritizes the immigration process and makes it quicker than any other Canadian immigration programs.

Quebec and Northern Canada Territory of Nunavut don’t have any PNP. Instead, they have established their own selection criteria for all economic immigrants who want to reside in Quebec.
