Canadian Skilled Worker Job List
The Federal Skilled Worker Program just re-launched, and we are often asked what jobs qualify for this program. The jobs are found on a list called the NOC job list, or the National Occupation Classification. This list of jobs ensures that the definitions of various occupations around Canada are the same across the board, and is used for a number of different purposes.
Workers who wish to apply to immigrate to Canada under the Federal Skilled Worker Program need to have work experience in jobs that fall under specific categories on this job list. When these categories are brought up in the context of immigration, many people refer to this list as the Skilled Worker Job List.
Which Jobs are Eligible for the Skilled Worker Job List?
The NOC job categories for the Skilled Worker Program include Skill Type 0, Skill Level A and Skill Level B.
They do not include Skill Level C (Occupations of intermediate level, clerical or supportive functions) or Skill Level D jobs (Elemental sales or service and primary labour occupations).
The skill levels and types that do qualify for the skilled work program include management occupations, professional and related occupations, as well as technical, skilled trades and paraprofessional occupations.
Are you Eligible for the Skilled Worker Program?
To be eligible for the Skilled Worker program, you will need to have one year of full-time work experience within one of these occupations within the last 10 years, plus be able to pass the Federal Skilled Worker program points criteria. This means you need to obtain 67 points out of a possible 100 based on things like age, experience, education level and language proficiency.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.
This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!
VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
