Federal Skilled Trades Program

Federal Skilled Trade Class

The Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) was introduced in 2013 by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to pave the way for experienced trades workers to immigrate to Canada.

The Express Entry system of the Canadian Government has three federal economic programs and the Federal Skilled Trades Program Canada is one of them.

Through Express Entry, the Canadian government invites skilled trades workers into the country to help contribute to the economy with their trades experience.

Canada’s Immigration Levels Plan intends to bring in more than 400,000 immigrants each year. Out of these immigrants, nearly 110,000 spots are reserved for Express Entry.

If you are a professional who specialises in a certain trade, then the Federal Skilled Trades Class is an avenue that is wide open for you to explore. With the help of the Best Immigration Consultant Surrey, you can also try applying through other programs such as Provincial Nominee Program (PNP), and step closer to your dream of migrating to Canada.

Advantages of Federal Skilled Trades Program Canada

Canada is a country that has a low rate of birth, and its population is an aging one, so there is a labour shortage that needs to be mitigated in order to contribute to its economy positively. The Federal Skilled Trade Class is an initiative introduced by provincial and federal governments to take skilled workers to Canada.

Immigrating to Canada through the FSTP has a variety of advantages. Successful FSTP candidates can usually get permanent residency within six months under Express Entry.

The Federal Skilled Trades Program Canada does not require its candidates to prove their educational level, and for this reason, these candidates might score lower CSR grades as opposed to the other Express Entry candidates. Entering the Express Entry pool boosts your chances of getting permanent residency in Canada. 

You can acquire a provincial nomination through this, and it almost guarantees your Express Entry success. A province nomination adds 600 CRS points to your application, increasing your chances of receiving an invitation for permanent residence through Express Entry.

Federal Skilled Trade Class Applicant with Canadian Job Experience

If you are a Federal Skilled Trade Class applicant with Canadian job experience, you are much more likely to succeed in the Canadian labour market. Candidates who have worked and received education in Canada receive higher Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points from IRCC.

According to government and academic research, having Canadian experience is a significant benefit when applying for permanent residency in Canada. When you apply for permanent residence under the Federal Skilled Trades Program Canada, the experience and knowledge you gained while working in Canada will give you an advantage in the labour market, and make it more likely for you to get approved for permanent residence.

The Process Of immigration with Federal Skilled Trades Program

There is a specific procedure to be followed when it comes to immigrating with FDTP, and our immigration consultants in Surrey, BC will take you through this process and help you understand the intricacies of the dealings.

IRCC manages skilled worker applications for three economic class skilled worker immigration programs, including the FSTP, using Express Entry.

To begin, make sure you meet the qualifying requirements of the Federal Skilled Trade Class and the requirements of the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) or the Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

If you match the requirements, you can create an Express Entry profile on the IRCC website and receive a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS score) based on factors such as your age, education, language abilities, work experience, and Canadian work and study experience.

Federal Skilled Trade Class Immigration Consultant

How Can We Help you

IRCC organizes Express Entry lotteries every two weeks, asking the individuals with the highest CRS scores to apply for permanent residency. The Immigration and Refugee Commission (IRCC) will provide you with a deadline for submitting your permanent residence application. Your application will be processed within six months by IRCC.

Being a professional immigration consultant in Surrey, we are happy to announce that we can help you in filing your Federal Skilled Trade Class application to reach your dream of migrating to Canada. Below, we have provided a comprehensive guide on what you need to do to immigrate.

Step 01 – Check to see whether you fulfill the FSTP’s eligibility requirements of the Federal Skilled Trade Class.

Step 02 – Once you have confirmed that you can meet FSTP or another Express Entry program’s eligibility requirements, you’ll need to take an IRCC-approved English or French language test. If you studied abroad in a qualifying program, you may want to undergo an Educational Credential Assessment to claim the additional CRS points you are entitled to. The Express Entry page has more information.

Step 3: Submit your Express Entry profile for free on the IRCC website.

Step 4: Check the IRCC’s Express Entry drawings to see if you’ve been selected for a permanent residence invitation. Every two weeks, a drawing is held.

Step 5: If you obtain an ITA, complete and submit your permanent residency application to IRCC before the deadline.

All of us three family member are now Canadian PR holders. I am very grateful for all the hard work he did on my extremely difficult file. Well to be honest, I loved the human side of Vikas JI that he helped me out. There is no word that we can express how much satisfied we are with their services and how high we rate them heartily. Calling him from India on odd/even time, he has always answered my calls and my messages respectively without bothering Canada time, in Night or weekend. I strongly & gratefully recommend Total Visa immigration Services to all because they are not only helpful & professional but also their work is very detailed and they give their everything for client`s success. Just give them time and have patience, rest is their job to take care your case. Once again we thank Vikas Ji & we are blessed from God that our case was dealt by them.

      I would highly recommend Total Visa Immigration. Mr Vikas Sharma is very polite and a knowledgeable person. He has dealt with our applications in a very organized and professional way.If you have any queries or work related to Canada immigration, you can contact him without hesitation.Many thanks to the team.
      We had a great consultation and experience with Total Visa Immigration Services (TVIS). Our primary POC was Dr Vikas, who guided us through the documentation process. I must say that he was thorough in terms of documentation and didn’t leave a single paper, absence of which would have affected the final decision on our (Mine + Spouse’s) work permit applications.Although, our application looked a bit complex to us, he managed it very well and finally, our visas got approved by the IRCC. I would highly recommend TVIS for all kinds of applications related to Canada immigration.Thank you, Dr Vikas for your time and support.

      I met Vikas when I was in a bad state, after rejection of my wife’s open work permit twice. However this time it got approved and I must give all credit to Vikas for that. I found him dealing the case very meticulously and systematically. He seems to be updated with all the latest information and guide the applicant accordingly. I can vouch for his knowledge regarding documentation, which surely yield positive results. Me and my family would like to pay our sincere gratitude to Vikas. Thanks
