Canadian skilled worker immigration

An option for Canadian skilled worker immigration is to see if you can find a Canadian company who will certify a job offer for you. This is the easiest option for you, paperwork-wise as most of the necessary paperwork is handled by the company and the Government, but a word of warning: the company will have to prove to the Government that it has looked for an employee from the local, Canadian workforce and been unable to find one. This is usually because there is no-one with the relevant qualifications to do the job. To successfully go for this option, you have to be very, very highly qualified!

If you don’t qualify to be sponsored by a Canadian company, then you can look at the other options for Canadian skilled work immigration. The most obvious is the

Canadian National Occupational Classification list. This is a list of 29 different job titles the government is keen to recruit from its immigration applicants. This has a whole host of job titles from healthcare managers to oil-industry jobs to occupational therapists to chefs and cooks. You would be well advised to study this list and see what you can do.

If you have farming, or cultural or athletic experience, then maybe you should look to going self employed.

This is not as daunting as it may first sound! The Canadian government is keen to point out that new immigrants under the self-employed category need not have started their own business before they actually immigrate! Self-employed applicants only have to show that they have the intention to go self-employed, and the ability to make a living in their endeavour. The government’s hope is that you will set up your own business and within a very short while will envisage employing Canadian people within your business, so they give you every help they can.

Now, a note of caution: In order to apply for a permanent resident’s work permit, you have to take a language test.

Canada has two official languages, namely English and French. You have to take (…and pass!..) a test in either of these languages. If you plan to move to Québec, your language must be written and oral French as up to 80% of the population there use it as their first language.

The administrators of the official tests in English or French lessons have on-line resources, and you are strongly advised to take them up on their offer if you feel your language skills are somewhat lacking. Whilst having a foreign accent can be seen in some jobs as very attractive, you need to be able to understand what people are saying to you, and they need to understand you too!
