Federal Skilled Immigration

Professionals and Foreign skilled workers are widely needed in Canada.

The main Reason of Canadian immigration is to welcome newcomers who can contribute in Canada's economical growth. Skilled workers settling in Canada permanently are valuable to Canada's economical growth and are the strength to its workforce.

Successful applicants will receive a Canadian Immigration (permanent resident) Visa, allowing the applicant to immigrate to Canada with his or her family.

Find out the Government of Canada's allocations for economic immigration programs under Canada's multi-year immigration levels plan 2018 to 2021. 

As a skilled worker or professional, you have several options to consider. For example, you may be eligible to apply under Canada's Federal Skilled Worker Class or, if your intended destination is in Quebec, the Quebec Skilled Worker Program may be the pathway for you and your family, if applicable. Moreover, if you know in which province or territory you plan to reside, you may be able to submit an application through one of the Provincial Nominee Programs. 
Below, you will find a list of those programs for you to explore. We also encourage you to start your free assessment. 

Federal Skilled Worker Program: This program is for individuals with certain work experience who intend to reside in any province or territory outside of the province of Quebec.

Quebec Skilled Worker: Applicants who plan to immigrate to the province of Quebec may be eligible to submit an application through this program.

Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs): Most provinces and territories have created their own skilled worker programs for those intending to live and work in their particular province or territory. These are fast-track Canadian immigration programs that allow candidates to receive a provincial nomination certificate. In most cases, a nomination certificate will allow candidates to immigrate more quickly than through other Canadian immigration programs.


 Many Canadian employers are actively seeking foreign skilled workers to join their workforce as quickly as possible. If you can obtain a job offer from a Canadian employer, you may also qualify for fast-track Canadian immigration application processing.
