Presently, the most suitable way to immigrate to Canada is to apply as a Skilled Worker. Skilled Workers in Canada are given permanent residence status in Canada, are able to accompany their spouse and children to Canada, are able to apply for any employment in Canada, are able to access all of the same social government programs as Canadian citizens, are given the same rights and freedoms as Canadian citizens (except for the right to vote), are able to acquire Canadian citizenship after three years of residence in Canada, and the list goes on…
The Federal Government of Canada has devised a reasonable point system for the acceptance of quality Skilled Workers to Canada. The point system focuses on characteristics of a skilled worker that will assist the skilled worker to become successfully established as a permanent resident of Canada. The three main characteristics of a skilled worker that this point system focuses on include education, work experience and knowledge of English and/or French.
The minimal educational requirement of a skilled worker who is applying to migrate to Canada is the attainment of a Bachelor’s Degree at the post-secondary level. Skilled workers who have attained a Master’s Degree or Doctorate Degree will obviously awarded a higher score on the point system. Individuals who have not attainted a Bachelor’s Degree must not apply as a skilled worker to Canada.
The minimal requirement regarding work experience for a skilled worker who is applying to migrate to Canada is the completion of at least one year of full-time work experience. The more work experience a skilled worker possesses, the higher score the skilled worker will achieve on the point system. This work experience does not necessarily have to be directly related to the educational background of the skilled worker but has to be considered skilled work. Occupations that are considered skilled work include, but are not limited to, teachers, professors, lawyers, accountants, bookkeepers, administrative officers, human resource officers, secretaries, principals, teachers, professors, librarians, journalists, computer programmers, engineers, technicians, technologists, contractors, electricians, plumbers, welders, painters, mechanics, managers, supervisors, nurses, pharmacists, doctors, dentists, dental hygienists, physiotherapists, veterinarians, paramedics, police officers, firefighters, social workers, real estate agents, barbers, chefs, cooks, etc…
KNOWLEDGE OF ENGLISH AND / OR FRENCH
A skilled worker who is applying to migrate to Canada must possess a moderate to high proficiency level in either the English or French language. Skilled workers will be required to take an English or French examination from an approved organization to determine their exact proficiency level in either of the official languages of Canada. Skilled workers who have worked for at least two consecutive years in a country where English or French is the official language may be exempted from taking the English or French language. These countries include Canada, USA, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and France.
The minimal requirements for acceptance under the point system as a skilled worker for permanent residence status to Canada vary on a case-to-case basis.
