Skilled Worker Immigration Process in Canada

─────────────────────────────────


If you are looking for Calgary’s skilled worker immigration specialists, Phoenix Legal is the company for you. We can help you build a profile that will increase your chances of getting shortlisted.  


Since 2015, Immigration Canada has allowed the Express Entry of skilled workers to Calgary. The Express Entry system has reduced the processing time of skilled worker immigration in Calgary. A new intake system was implemented to assess and invite the highest scoring candidates looking to relocate to Canada. The express entry tool was designed to facilitate and enhance the process of skilled worker immigration. Once your online profile is complete for the skilled worker immigration process in Canada and other related requirements have been met, it will be assessed based on many factors, including:

  • English and/or French skills
  • Level of Education
  • Work experience
  • Offer of Employment
  • Other suitability factors


The highest scoring candidates will then be sent an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in one of the following three programs:

  • The Federal Skilled Worker program:This program is for the candidates who have been shortlisted to immigrate to Canada because of their skills and work experience (under skill type 0, skill level A or skill level B category on the Canadian National Occupational Classification). You will need at least one year of experience in the skill within the last 10 years of your career. However, these limits don’t apply when you have a permanent job offer.
  • The Federal Skilled Trades program: It’s a program for people who are qualified in a skilled trade and are willing to become permanent residents of Canada. Candidates who have at least two years of full-time work experience or an equal amount of part-time work experience in a skilled trade are eligible. The experience is only valid if it is within the last five years of your career.
  • The Canadian Experience Class: The Canadian Experience Class is for skilled workers who have Canadian work experience and want to become permanent residents. You should have at least one year of skilled work experience in Canada during the last three years of your career.


For a skilled, hardworking candidate who’s willing to settle in Canada, there are multiple options to consider. The goal of the Express Entry system is to encourage skilled worker immigration to Calgary. If you aspire to be a contributing member of the Calgary community, we can help.


Your assessment is based on different factors. We can help you build an effective profile and assist you in the completion and submission of the application. Book a consultation over the telephone now!
