Foreign Skilled Worker Immigration
Foreign skilled workers and professionals are greatly needed in Canada.
One of the objectives of Canadian immigration is to welcome skilled newcomers who will contribute to Canada’s growing economy. Skilled workers that settle in Canada on a permanent basis are especially valuable to the Canadian workforce.
Successful applicants of the Skilled Worker Immigration programs will receive a Canadian Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa.
As a skilled worker or professional, there are several options for you to consider. You can either apply under the federal program or, if you know which province/territory in which you plan to reside, you can make your application through one of the provincial programs.
