Federal Skilled Worker Program to Re-Open May 4, 2013

By Michael Niren December 20, 2012 1 min. read

According to this news release from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney has announced that the Federal Skilled Worker program will re-open with several changes. canadian-immigration-niren-associates

The changes made to the program were in an effort to ensure the program attracts the kind of workers Canada needs.

New Official Changes to the Skilled Worker Program

The changes include:

“The government’s number one priority remains jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity,” he said. “The new Federal Skilled Worker program criteria will ensure Canada is selecting the skilled immigrants our economy needs, who are most likely to succeed and fully realize their potential in Canada.”

The Skilled Worker Program is the largest economic immigration program in Canada, and these changes are expected to make it so that it only takes a few months to process applications instead of a few years. If you want to immigrate to Canada under the Skilled Worker Program, please contact us for assistance.

This is a highly competitive program, and we can help you determine if you are eligible to begin the application process. Best advice? Plan in advance!

Thank you for guiding us through this complicated process. Although the first part of our process with Visaplace we felt was slow, they turned it around. In the end we had a good experience with their attorney, she was determined to get it right and deserves to be commended.

I was very pleased with the service provided to me by VisaPlace. Felicita was professional and persistent, even contacting my employer to help fill out the Employer Portal. She went the extra mile and prepared a package of forms and documentation that let my wife and I breeze through the Canada Border Services process and be issued Canadian work permits.I feel I definitely got my money’s worth with these people.

Successfully obtained my US L1 Visa thanks to Visaplace. We had some problems with document retrieval at first but they’d been there before and guided us through. Highly recommended.

Bansuri helped us book our consultation at Visaplace. She was very professional and super friendly and had a good array of knowledge to guide us to the right legal attorney. Highly recommend giving Visaplace a call. Thanks Bansuri!

A while ago, I consulted with Mansi Sanghvi regarding my Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) application. She assisted in clarifying my doubts and instilled confidence in me. I subsequently received my nomination. I extend my gratitude to Mansi for her invaluable assistance. I wholeheartedly recommend her, as She possesses considerable experience and demonstrates generosity. Thank you Mansi!
