Canada offers a Federal Skilled Trades Program (FTSC) which allows qualified individuals to immigrate to Canada if they have the educational qualification for a trade or if they have a job offer to do so. This opens up a world of opportunities to those who want to work in Canada.

The FTSC can be your path to permanent residency in Canada. The FTSC aims to meet the demands of the Canadian workplace. There is a specific list of trades which qualify to fulfill those needs.

The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have a strict set of guidelines to qualify for the FTSC. The help of a qualified immigration consultant will ensure that your application is not rejected.

Who can apply for the Federal Skilled Trades Program?

Any applicant, who has the certification to work in one of the occupations listed under the FTSC program or has a job offer, can immigrate to Canada and obtain permanent residency status in Canada under this program.

Under this stream, one can immigrate even without a job offer. The FTSC has specific requirements for educational requirements, job offers and work experience.
