Top Skilled Trade Jobs in Canada that Are In-Demand

There is no better way to move to Canada than to have a job offer. If you have a valuable skill, then there is already a place for you in Canada and it’s even better when your kind of skill is in high demand because your immigration process will just be a roller-coaster and very easy.

Canada holds high regard for immigrants with skills and it is the backbone behind immigration. In a bid to improve the economy of the nation, improve the country, etc. Canada opened its doors to immigrants from around the globe, given everyone the chance to live, work, and base permanently in Canada.

Skilled traders are persons with a specific skill and knowledge about a certain occupation, they are those who have the opportunity to work with their hands and earn a lot of money on a daily basis. A skilled trader can be an Electrician, a cook, caregiver, sales representative, etc., and basically anyone with specialized knowledge for a particular occupation. As a skilled trader, you have so many pathways to immigrate to Canada even without a university certificate or a job offer.

Although, there are so many skilled traders looking to move to Canada just like you, so having a job offer can give you added bonus and an edge over other applicants. You can read up this article to learn how to get a job offer fast from a Canadian employer.

Programs that Would Help You Move to Canada As A Skilled Trader

Because you already have the skills Canada needs, moving to Canada will become a lot easier for you. Provinces in Canada have different needs for immigrants, some have more need for immigrants with painting skills, caregivers, cooks, or heavy-duty equipment mechanic, etc. depending on the area of occupation that has a labor shortage.

The Canadian government has also introduced so many programs that are mainly focused on bringing in skilled traders to fill up vacant job positions. One of such programs is the Federal Killed Trades Worker Program which part of the Canada Express Entry system.

Through the express entry, immigrants are sponsored or invited to apply to the federal skilled trades worker program, immigrate, and become permanent residents in Canada. Applicants receive scores based on some factors like Age, Education, work experience, etc. the scores will help them rank above each other, and if those that meet the cut-off, get an invitation to immigrate to Canada.

Another great way to immigrate is by applying to a Canadian province directly. This way, you get to use the Provincial Nominee Program of the province you choose or that is in-demand for your particular kind of skill. Each province creates a separate program like a sub-category under their Provincial Program with specifics to only bring in immigrants with the right profile and skill that is currently required by the province. An example of such a category is Ontario Skilled Trade Stream.
