Citizenship & Immigration Canada (CIC) has announced the Regulations amending the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) in a bid to modernise Canada's Immigration selection system. This 3-pronged approach includes introduction of a new Class - Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC).

Details on some of the other changes can be found here. Transcend Consultants is offering Free Assessment for immigration applicants from across the world under the FSTC and other immigration programs. Applicants simply need to complete the Online Assessment Form on their website.

The regulations are not final but proposed, and may be revised before implementation in January, 2013, based on public consultations.

The new FSTC is open to selected tradespersons with experience in the occupational areas like Industrial, Electrical and Construction Trades; Maintenance and Equipment Operation Trades; Supervisors and Technical Occupations in Natural Resources, Agriculture and Related Production; Processing, Manufacturing and Utilities Supervisors and Central Control Operators; as well as Chefs and Cooks, and Bakers and Butchers.

This is a pass/fail system, meaning that the applicants are assessed based on a set of criteria (as compared to a points system). The applicants meeting all the criteria are selected.

Applicants to the proposed program would be required to meet all of the 4 criteria, set as minimum requirements. These include

  •     Ability to work in one of the trades (Upto 2 Job offers or assessed qualifications);
  •     Proficiency in official languages (minimum CLB 5);
  •     Previous work experience in the selected trades (minimum 2 years full-time); and
  •     Meet the employment requirements of the selected trade.

The occupations for selected trade are identified through the National Occupational Classification (NOC), and are at Skill Level 'B'.

The NOC codes (occupations) within the following Occupational groups are included in the FSTC:

Minor Group
632     Chefs & Cooks (2 occupations)
633    Butchers & Bakers (2 occupations)
