Canada Skilled Workers

Canada Skilled Worker Program


Job immigration and skilled immigration are often referred to as Skilled Workers programs. In order to obtain a permanent residency in Canada, in most cases it is necessary to get a full-time job at a company in Canada. For example, Federal’s Express Entry system, which is scored based on the points grid, a large part of this is whether you have found a job in Canada. In Provincial programs, many programs disqualify applicants who do not have a job offer. Due to the high competition rate of immigration to Canada, if you do not get a job offer when you apply, you are very unlikely to be selected.


As such, it is most important to obtain a stable job when it comes to employment and skill migration. In most cases, the Express Entry system first calculates the score, and if the score is satisfied, the Express Entry is taken as it is, and if the score is insufficient, additional points can be received through the PNP program to pass the Express Entry. Otherwise, you can obtain a permanent residency through other non-Express Entry PNP programs, which is administered by each state, not through Express Entry. So, wouldn’t an individual simply contact a Canadian company directly to get a job? Well, things are not that simple. In most cases, employers seeking to hire foreign workers in Canada must undergo a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This is a very complex and difficult process to investigate whether the economic effects of hiring foreign workers will not adversely affect the Canadian economy. Because of this, business owners who prepare LMIA on their own often fail or give up on the way. At HSM, we work on job-matching as well as helping employers pass the LMIA. All processes are provided as one consistent service, and the progress of each process can be monitored by customers. Service fees are charged for each step, and if you do not want to proceed further, you can get a refund except some legal fees.

 Express Entry


This system which was introduced in 2015, has gone through an overhaul in 2018, and includes three groups of immigration programs, namely:

  • The Federal Skilled Worker Program
  • The Canadian Experience Class Program
  • The Federal Skilled Trades Program


Canada Express Entry is the most popular immigration system offering Canadian permanent residence. Applicants who meet basic criteria, submit an online profile known as an expression of interest, under one of 3 federal Canada immigration programs or a participating provincial immigration program, to the Express Entry Pool.


The profiles of candidates in the pool are ranked against each other, under a Comprehensive Ranking System.  The highest ranked candidates will be considered for an invitation to apply for permanent residence. Candidates under Canada Express Entry 2019, receiving an invitation to apply, must quickly submit a full application, within a delay of 60-days.  The government aims to process cases in only 6-months.


Most immigrants to Canada will come through the Canada Express Entry Immigration 2018 system, last year.

 Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) – PNP Skilled


Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is a process through which most territories and provinces in Canada nominates its immigrants. Each of the territories and provinces (Except Quebec) has its own standard and streams for the PNP. Their immigration programs target certain groups such as students, business people, skilled workers or semi-skilled workers.


The Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is a Canadian immigration scheme that is based on contracts between most provinces and the federal government of Canada. Each of the territories and provinces (Except Quebec) has its own standard and streams for the PNP taking care of their immigration matters. Consequently, most Canadian provinces and territories have signed agreements with the federal government in order to attract immigrants to their own provinces. In general, the province attracts, finds, and nominates immigrants. Then they refer approved candidates to federal immigration authorities in order to issue permanent resident visas.


Every year, many graduates, students, business people, skilled workers or semi-skilled workers. and entrepreneurs come to call Canada home when a province nominates them because of the skills they can bring to this country.


PNP mostly looks for skilled workers from all different backgrounds that have experience as well as education at a college or university. The Provincial Nominee Program also targets investors, entrepreneurs and self-employed persons, who can bring fresh eyes and new innovations to Canada. This helps create a more powerful and strong economy, benefiting other Canadians. Many provinces also run programs that help families reunite in their provinces.

Special Program


Special programs, referred in HSM, are created primarily by the federal government to attract immigrants to work in specific occupations or in specific areas. Its characteristic is that if the government’s target standards are met, the conditions are easy to change or disappear.

Because the recruitment conditions are very special, there are some restrictions, but compared with other programs, it has the advantage of being able to easily obtain a permanent residency.

Currently, there are four programs that HSM is dealing with: Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program (AIPP), Rural Northern Immigration Pilot (RNIP), Agri-Food Immigration Pilot, and Caregivers Program. Please refer to each section for details.
