The proposed reforms in the Immigration System over the past few days are aimed at ensuring a better economic growth of the nation and also to meet the labor demand in various provinces. The aim is also to make the immigration process faster and smoother than before.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has introduced Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC) for the immigrants who are trades person.

Supervisors and technical people with an experience in Natural resources, agriculture and its related occupations, Chefs, Cooks, Bakers and butchers will all be included in this Class.
According to Canada’s National Occupation Classification (NOC), the above mentioned skills are referred as “B” level of work.
Qualifying under this category is not a matter of pints rather a matter of pass or fail.
Requiems to be met
• An applicant must have an offer of employment from Canadian employer which should be at least for a year’s duration.
• A certificate of qualification to be issued by an authority of province or territory.
• A working experience of 24 months in the skilled area in the last five years is important for the applicant.
• Proof of Professionals qualifications for making the applicant eligible for a work.
A person meeting all the above mentioned requirements can apply under this category.
Those who do not get covered under the above mentioned category can also apply under Federal Skilled Worker Class or any other category they meet the requirements with.
About introducing this program an Attorney David Cohen says, “This new program could not have come soon enough. If all goes according to the government’s plan, the Federal Skilled Trades program will be a big step towards addressing Canada’s labor needs and bringing in thousands of future permanent residents.”
After returning huge of number of applications which were made after February, 2008, the government now is making reforms so that the economy and the employers of the nation do not face any crisis. Hence this new class has been introduced so that skilled people from across the world can get an opportunity to come to Canada under a special category which will also serve the purpose of “labor market” of Canada.
