Updated Federal Skilled Workers Program

Friday, July 1, 2011

Starting today, July 1, 2011 the slight but impactful changes to Canada's Federal Skilled Workers Immigration program will be implemented.

The reduction of the number of applications to be considered plus the cap set for each of the 29 priority occupations would be tough to applicants. But at least, the list weren't trimmed down further. There was a time the high demand jobs to migrate to Canada under the same program stood at 38.

It also important to note which occupations reached the cap limit under the previous set of requirements. They were:

0631 Restaurant and Food Service Managers
1122 Professional Occupations in Business Services to Management
2121 Biologists and Related Scientists
2151 Architects
3111 Specialist Physicians
3112 General Practitioners and Family Physicians
3113 Dentists
3131 Pharmacists
3152 Registered Nurses

It is best to act fast to be eligible and be able to submit their applications as soon as possible especially those falling under the 9 occupations listed above.

Remember that to be eligible:

  • one must have at least one continuous year of full-time, paid work experience or the equivalent in part-time continuous employment. The experience must be within the last ten (10) years.
  • one need to submit the results of his/her language proficiency test
  • pass the 6 selection criteria points system
  1. This does not apply to applicants intending to live in the province of Quebec.
  2. The set limits to the number of applications & cap to each occupations do not apply to applications with an offer of arranged employment.

I am not an immigration consultant. It would be best to consult only with those authorized ones, avoiding crooked immigration consultants when applying to migrate to Canada. I personally know a very experienced and authorized one who offers free assessment. Check him out here.
