Do you have a skill or trade that you think can help you in qualifying for permanent residency in Canada? Qualifying for the Federal Skilled Trades Program is a great way to make Canada your permanent home.
Basically, you can qualify for The Federal Skilled Trades Program, if your job falls into these categories:
- Major Group 72, industrial, electrical and construction trades,
- Major Group 73, maintenance and equipment operation trades,
- Major Group 82, supervisors and technical jobs in natural resources, agriculture and related production,
- Major Group 92, processing, manufacturing and utilities supervisors and central control operators,
- Minor Group 632, chefs and cooks, and
- Minor Group 633, butchers and bakers.
That covers a wide range of actual job titles, within those categories. So does your job count?
Does My Job Qualify for the Federal Skilled Trades Program?
Your first step is to find out where your job falls under the National Occupational Classification (NOC). It needs to be classified as skill type B, according to their classification system.
There are far too many jobs that fall into this area to list here, so your best bet is to look for your job in the list by clicking here.
If your job title doesn’t quite match the one you’re looking at in the NOC list, that’s OK. It’s more important that you can prove you perform the duties and tasks listed in the lead statement of the occupational description in the NOC.
