The Canadian Government is currently in the process of revising its immigration policies. As a result, it has temporarily suspended the acceptance of applications to the Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC) until 2013 for any individuals who do not have an approved job offer. This means that applicants must have a job offer that has been arranged by an employer and approved by the relevant government department in advance of their application.
While no date has been announced for the re-opening of the Federal Skilled Worker Class for applicants without job offers, the Government has announced that the new regulations will include improvements to the FSW Class and a new category for applications, called the Federal Skill Trades Class. It is anticipated that this new category will be better suited to receive applications from individuals with training and experience in skilled trades.
If you do not have a job offer and would like to find out more about the new regulations once they are announced, please check back with us in Fall 2012/ Winter 2013. More details will be posted to this website as they become available.
