From Nominations To PR Foreign Skilled Workers in Canada Edition

Foreign Skilled Workers

After discussing the start-to-finish journey of international students and Canadian skilled immigration through provincial nominee programs in previous editions, we are excited to cover the journey of foreign skilled workers in Canada. 

Foreign skilled workers may directly qualify for Canadian permanent residency based on their education, work experience, knowledge of English and/or French, and other factors. They may apply even without a prior job offer from a Canadian employer. 

Here, the focus of the discussion is the prospects and eligibility of foreign skilled workers to secure Canadian skilled immigration and eventually obtain Canadian permanent residency.  

Mapping the Journey of Foreign Skilled Workers in Canada 

1. The prospects of Canadian immigration remain stable amidst a likely global recession.

2. Experts have time and again assured that candidates with high skill levels have good immigration prospects in Canada.

3. Below we discuss the various phases involved in the  journey of Canada immigration for foreign skilled workers.  


1. Begin your online research on the opportunities for immigration as a skilled worker and learn more about Canada. 

2. Identify your skilled work experience in performing the duties set out in the lead statement of the occupational description in the National Occupation Classification (NOC) 2021. 

3. Skilled work experience in Canada means that you’ve worked in one of the occupations listed as eligible under the new Training, Education, Experience, and Responsibilities (TEER) systems: TEER 0, TEER 1, TEER 2, TEER 3. 

4. TEER is equivalent to erstwhile NOC 2016 Skill Level O (Management Jobs), Skill Level A (Professional Jobs that usually require a University Degree), and Skill Level B (Technical Jobs and skilled trade jobs that usually require a College Diploma) 

5. Visit offline job fairs or book a free consultancy to explore your best chances of skilled immigration to Canada.


1. First, qualify for the Federal Skilled Worker Program or Federal Skilled Trades Program. 

2. Next, Create an online Express Entry profile and enter the Express Entry pool. The validity of the profile is 12 months.  

3. Now you may expect an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence in the upcoming federal Express Entry draws. 


1. While you’re waiting for nominations, keep your language proficiency tests (English or French) score up-to-date. Scores are valid for two years. 

2. Arrange a proof of funds unless you have a valid job offer from an employer in Canada. 

3. Get your Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) done for immigration purposes. It is necessary to show that the education you obtained from your home country is equal to Canadian standards. 

4. Follow the latest immigration updates from genuine online resources.
