One of the objectives of Canadian immigration is to welcome skilled newcomers who will contribute to Canada’s growing economy. Skilled workers that settle in Canada on a permanent basis are especially valuable to the Canadian workforce. Successful applicants of the Skilled Worker Immigration programs will receive a Canadian Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa. As a skilled worker or professional, there are several options for you to consider. You can either apply under the federal program or, if you know which province/territory in which you plan to reside, you can make your application through one of the provincial programs.
Federal Skilled Worker: For skilled worker applicants who intend to reside in any province or territory, except Quebec
Quebec Skilled Worker: For skilled worker applicants who wish to immigrate the Province of Quebec
