Canadian Skilled Trades Sector Targets 3,000 Overseas Workers In 2013

21 Dec 2012


Immigration News

Some regions of Canada are facing labour shortages and to reduce this gap, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney has announced a new program to speed the arrival to Canada for foreign skilled tradespeople. The skills should be in demand in the country.

"This is about having an immigration system that works for Canada, works for our economy, works for newcomers [and] fuels our long-term growth and prosperity,"

"For too long, Canada's immigration system has not been open to these in-demand skilled workers. These changes are long overdue and will help us move to a fast and flexible immigration system that works for Canada's economy,"

Starting from January 2nd 2013, Canadian immigration department will start accepting applications for the program. The limit for applications intake is 3000 for the first year, this will help in keeping processing time minimum.

You would be preferred, if you have:

  • You have a valid job offer in Canada.
  • You have proficiency in French or English
  • You have recently worked in the trade and have a minimum of 2 years' experience.
  • Your skills come under the federal trade classification system.

Canadian federal government will communicate with individual provinces and would ask them to bring a list of deficient skills category. Pipe-fitters, mechanics, transportation jobs and electricians are some of the skills that can be on the list

"These changes are a great step in the right direction,"  "It was easier under the points system to get in if you had a post-doctorate degree in ancient Greek pottery as opposed to somebody who has 20 years experience as a welder or an electrician. So that was a problem."
