Immigration to Canada as a skilled worker
So, you’re seriously considering immigration to Canada as a skilled worker? Canada can offer you many benefits, and Canadian citizens enjoy some of the highest standards of life on the entire planet! Immigration to Canada as a skilled worker is not easy, but with a little thought, hard work and asking the right questions it can be accomplished. Here’s a few of the things you’ll need to know before you can finally say that this is for you.
Questions to ask yourself on Immigration to Canada as a skilled worker
1) The most important thing to consider before applying for immigration is whether your language skills are up to par. To be considered, you have to have excellent skills, both written and oral, in either English or French as they are the two official languages of Canada. If you need to brush up after landing in Canada, the Canadian Government offer free tuition and courses to get you up to scratch.
2) Also very important are your education and qualifications. If you only have the equivalent in a High School Diploma you are much less likely to meet the minimum requirements than if you have a Degree or even a Doctorate. The more qualifications you have the better!
3) Your work experience. If you don’t have a certified job offer, you must have at least a year of experience in one of the following list of occupations:

4) Whether you have an offer of Arranged Employment from a Canadian company. These are generally available from companies who can demonstrate to Canadian Officials that there is no-one available in Canada who fits their employment criteria and that they have to seek applicants from abroad.
5) Your age. You must be between the ages of 18 and 54 to apply for Immigration to Canada as a skilled worker unless you have a higher than average amount of points under the selection grid.
6) Your adaptability to the Canadian Way of Life as a Canadian immigrant. This means you must share Canadian values of life and liberty. A good book to read on this subject can be downloaded from the Canadian Government’s website here.
