The Federal Skilled Trades Program (FTSC) allows individuals with either a  job offer or educational qualification to work in a trade to immigrate to Canada.  This program provides an amazing opportunity to thousands of people each year and, their is no reason why you can’t be among them.

Under the Federal Skilled Trades Program, one is able to obtain Permanent Residency in Canada. The objective of the FTSC is to meet the demands of the booming Canadian workforce and there is a specific list of trades which qualify to fulfill those needs.

However, the FTSC has strict criteria set by the Canadian government (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada) that must be met in order to qualify. Meaning, that not retaining the aid of an immigration professional may very well lead to a rejected application due to numerous details that can be potentially overlooked.

Who is the Federal Skilled Trades Program For?

Individuals who possess a job offer or have a certification to work in an occupation on the list under the Federal Skilled Trades Program are able to immigrate to Canada on a permanent basis and obtain permanent residency status in Canada. Potential applicants under the stream can immigrate either with or without a job offer. The FTSC has specific requirements for educational requirements, job offers and work experience.
