     Skilled Trades Program Requirements Explained

    Work Experience

    Skilled trades for the Federal Skilled Trades Program are organized under these groups of the National Occupational Classification (NOC).
    Go here to find the NOC code, title and skill type or level for your job.

    The major NOC groups are subdivided into different occupations, and they are all skill type B.
    Federal Skilled Trades Program applications must be made based on the 2016 version of the NOC 

     

    Education

    There is no education requirement for the Federal Skilled Trades Program. But, if you want to improve your rank in the Express Entry pool, there are 2 ways you can do this.

    1. If you went to school in Canada, you can get points for a certificate, diploma or degree from a Canadian secondary institution (high school) or post-secondary institution.
    2. If you have foreign education, you can get points for a completed educational credential, but to do this first you need to have an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) report for immigration purposes from a designated organization showing that your education is equal to a completed certificate, diploma or degree.

    Language Ability

    You must take an approved language test to prove your language levels.
    To measure your English or French levels, we use:
    You must get a minimum level of CLB 7 or NCLC 7 for 1 official language in all 4 language areas.

    To get points for the second official language, you must meet the minimum level of CLB 5 or NCLC 5 in all 4 language areas.

    Once you take the language test, you can use it to see exactly how many points you get for the language selection factor.

     

    Proof of funds

    You must show that you have enough money for you and your family to settle in Canada, unless you

     

    Admissibility


    You must be admissible to Canada, There are different reasons you may not be allowed into Canada, such as security, criminal or medical reasons. A Canadian immigration officer will decide if you can enter Canada when you apply for a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) or when you arrive at a port of entry.


    Where you can live in Canada

    You must plan to live outside the province of Quebec. The province of Quebec selects its own skilled workers. If you plan on living in Quebec, see Quebec-selected skilled workers program for more information.


    Get assessed by the province or territory

    You’ll likely have to go to the province or territory to be assessed for your trade. You may also need an employer in Canada to give you experience and training.

    To learn more about getting assessed, you should go to the website of the body that governs trades for the province/territory where you would like to live and work. The process is different, depending on where you want to go.

    The provinces include: 

    Alberta
    British Columbia
    Manitoba
    New Brunswick
    Newfoundland and Labrador
    Northwest Territories
    Nova Scotia
    Nunavut
    Ontario
    Prince Edward Island
    Saskatchewan
    Yukon

    If your trade is not regulated by a province or territory, it may be federally regulated (for example, airplane mechanic).
    After passing all the above, the next steps are to get your documents ready and submit your profile for Express Entry pool.
