Federal Skilled Worker Program | 15 Occupations Left
(Below is a transcription of this video)
Hi, my name is Michael Niren. I’m an immigration lawyer and founder of
VisaPlace.com. Today I’m going to talk about the Federal Skilled Worker
Understanding the Federal Skilled Worker Program
Currently there are 24 occupations that are accepted under the Federal
Skilled Worker Program. However, every occupation has a certain cap, a
certain number that is accepted, that applications are accepted under. So
currently, there are only 15 left out of the 24. Some are under healthcare,
some are under engineering, and some other occupations. I’m not going to
list them there. You can go to our website at www.VisaPlace.com for more
The point being, if you’re in an occupation that is no longer processed,
you’re going to have to wait for the following year to apply. So it’s very
important to look at the list, the occupation list. There’s 15 left. And if
you have an occupation under that category, there’s some in engineering, as
I said, some in healthcare and the sciences as well, it’s important to
consider applying if you qualify. Because otherwise, you may be out of luck
and you may have to wait an additional year to apply.
In addition to that, the occupation list can often change and you may find
your occupation completely off the list, and that has happened, so it’s
hard to plan for the future. And so I always tell our clients that if you
qualify now, that’s a window and I would go through that window if you
intend to immigrate to Canada.
Are You Interested in the Federal Skilled Worker Program?
So currently, as I mentioned, we have 15 occupations that are open. That
obviously will change. I’ll keep you updated as the year progresses, and I
wish you a great day. If you have to go and you need more information, go

After initially having a very bad experience with one of their immigration consultants and after posting a negative review on Google I was immediately contacted by the Managing Director to reschedule another consultation to try and provide me with a more positive experience. I have been impressed by their attention to customer service as a result of this and I appreciate the initiative that they have taken to turn my negative experience into a positive one. My second consultation was a great experience, I spoke with Brian about my Canadian PR application and he was able to give me great advice and was extremely helpful. He answered all my questions and explained the process of how to apply and was very patient with me which I really appreciate.
Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
Great firm on top of their game. Worked with us til the end to ensure my parents visa was approved and guided us along the way in a professional manor. Natalie is awesome. Majority of our communications were via email, but the responses were immediate. I would greatly recommend this firm. Thank you for all your hard work and help. My family and I do really appreciate it.
