NOC Job List for the Skilled Worker Program

The Federal Skilled Worker Program was temporarily halted a while ago so that the lengthy immigration backlog could be cleared up. Now that the backlog has been cleared quite a bit, the government is reopening the Federal Skilled Worker Program on May 4th, 2013. However, the program will only be open for 24 different occupations. New Skilled Worker List

Apply for permanent residence under the Federal Skilled Worker Program

Do you want to immigrate to Canada as a permanent resident? The Federal Skilled Worker Program allows you to do so, but it does not mean that just anyone can apply. There are only 5,000 applications being accepted for the program over the next year or so, or 300 per occupation. In addition, there will be 1,000 accepted under the PhD stream. If you have a qualifying job offer, there is no cap for you.

Your work experience and potential job offer are not the only things that can determine if you are eligible for this immigration stream. For example, you will need to pass based on a points system, which awards points for different criteria. The most awarding criteria are language proficiency for the most points, while you will also be assessed in your education level, work experience (in Canada for more points), age and other criteria.

We have helped many people come to Canada through the Federal Skilled Worker Program, as well as other immigration streams. We know what it takes to immigrate using this category, and we know what visa officers are looking for.

Please trust us with your immigration application, and set yourself up for the best change of success. Remember, applications will be accepted starting May 4th, so do not delay!

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.

Tim Willisin the last week

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.
