This newly established program is intended to bring skilled tradespersons into Canada to fill labor shortages in certain Canadian industries. Among the list of designated occupations for this new program are electricians and welders. Canadian immigration officials are currently working on establishing a list of skilled trade occupations that would qualify under this program. The list would be announced once the program is established on January 2nd 2012.

The criterion includes both minimum language proficiency and past relevant work experience. The applicant must meet basic language requirements and demonstrate past experience in the required field. There is a minimum requirement of at least two years of work experience as a skilled tradesperson to show the applicant has relevant experience. Moreover, an applicant must have an offer of employment in Canada to prove that they can become economically established in Canada. As this program in intended to challenge labor shortages, finding a job may not be as inconceivable as one may believe.

“This new program serves as a complementary program to the Federal Skilled Worker Program, as skilled tradesmen have a direct route to join the Canadian economy” attorney Feil explains. “This would help eliminate some of the backlog and ensure that employer’s needs are closely matched” adds Feil.

CIC will accept a maximum of 3,000 people. As this is a newly established program, there is some ambiguity regarding the application process. FWCanada can help assemble an application for this new program and ensure a smooth processing. As January 2013 is quickly approaching, start the application process now and increase your chances that your application will be considered.
