Foreign skilled workers and professionals are greatly needed in Canada.
One of the main goals of Canadian immigration is to welcome foreign skilled workers who will contribute to Canada’s economy. Skilled workers who move to Canada on a permanent basis are especially valuable to Canada’s economy and the strength of its workforce.
Successful applicants of the Skilled Worker Immigration programs will receive a Canadian Immigration Visa (permanent resident Visa), allowing the foreign professional to immigrate to Canada with his or her family.
As a skilled worker you have different options to consider. For example, you may apply under Canada’s Federal Skilled Worker Class or, if your intended destination is in Quebec, the Quebec Skilled Worker Program may be the pathway for you and your family, if applicable.
Below, you will find a list of skilled worker programs for you to explore.
