Federal Skilled Worker Applications Eligibility Criteria For Canada

28 Jun 2010


With effect from 26 June, 2010, out of those applying under one of the 29 eligible occupations, a maximum of 20,000 Federal Skilled Worker applications will be considered for processing in the following 12 months. Within the 20,000 cap, a maximum of 1,000 federal skilled worker applications per eligible occupation will be considered for processing each year. However, these limits do not apply for applications with an offer of arranged employment. This does not apply to applicants intending to migrate to Quebec.

The Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), sets a plan for the number of immigrants every year and it intends to welcome within economic, family and humanitarian immigration. In 2010, Canada wants to welcome more immigrants but in the economic category than originally planned.

Minister Kenney said, "Canada will continue to welcome historically high number of immigrants, but we need to manage the number of new applications or risk creating new backlogs and longer processing times. We have more than enough applications on hand now to fill many of our needs, we want to be fair to those people who have been waiting the longest".
