Skilled Visas

Canada needs skilled workers to fill ongoing employee shortages.

In the past few years, more than half of all immigrants granted permanent residence in Canada entered through the skilled immigration scheme.

An applicant who has valuable work experience and educational qualifications is far more likely to qualify as a Federal Skilled Worker to Canada.

Applications must be made to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). The application involves passing a points system based on six selection factors. An applicant must earn a minimum of 67 points currently in order to be considered for immigration.

Québec has its own skilled worker application process. To come to Canada as a Québec Skilled Worker, candidates must first apply to the Quebec Government for a Certificat de Séléction du Québec (CSQ).

After being selected by Québec, you must make a separate application to CIC for permanent residence.

A Visa Officer will assess your application based on Québec's immigration regulations.

However, it should be noted that Québec Skilled Workers are assessed on different selection criteria than the Federal Skilled Workers Program.

Instead, Québec uses twelve selection factors.

Provincial Nominee Programs
If candidates wish to apply under one of Canada’s Provincial Nominee Programs, they must first submit an application to their preferred province of settlement.

Each province has established its own selection criteria and procedures for choosing immigrants.

Please Note
Note that CIC has the final decision-making authority on admissibility.

Therefore you must meet all medical, security, and other immigration requirements as stipulated by immigration law and regulations.
