Federal Skilled Worker Program Eligible Occupations

Federal Skilled Worker Program Eligible Occupations

On January 1, 2015, the Canadian Government decided to implement the Express Entry Immigration System for the Economic Class and this includes the Federal Skilled Worker Program.

Under the Express Entry Category, Federal Skilled Workers across 347 occupations that are eligible, that also meet the minimum express entry criteria, are allowed to submit and Expression of Interest application to the Express Entry Pool. The profiles of all candidates in the pool are ranked using a Comprehensive Ranking System where highest ranking candidates are invited to apply for permanent residence. All candidates that are successful and are called upon to submit a full application must do so within a period of 60 days.

All who are termed and can be received into Canada as a Federal Skilled worker are those who have suitable educational background, work experience, language proficiency and qualified age bracket. Only those who qualify in these areas will be called to submit an application for permanent residence in Canada.

 In order to qualify for admission into the Express Entry Pool as a Federal Skilled worker under the Canada Skilled migrant visa from Dubai, the applicants must satisfy the following Canada visa requirements:
