New Skilled Worker Program List – Opens May 4, 2013
The Federal Skilled Worker Program is a Canadian immigration stream that offers permanent residency to individuals who are able to immigrate to Canada based on their own credentials, including age, language proficiency, education level and their work experience. To qualify for this immigration stream, the work experience must be in a certain occupation.
The Federal Skilled Worker Program was closed down because of a significant backlog, but it will be re-opened on May 4th to accept applications for 24 occupations. While there is a cap of 5,000 applications, there is no cap if the applicant has a qualifying job offer.
Check out the new Skilled Worker Occupation List
There are 24 occupations that are eligible for the Skilled Worker List, and you can check out the list here.
The list includes all kinds of skilled occupations, including different types of engineers, technicians, computer programmers and medical professionals.
But the type of job you work in is not the only determining criteria for this immigration stream. The Federal Skilled Worker Program relies on a point system to determine your eligibility, and you must obtain 67 out of 100 points to pass, and there are a number of different things that can earn you points.
