Default Canada federal skilled worker 2013

Hi,
I am new to this forum.
We are currently waiting for the updates on Canada Federal Skilled Worker Program to be launched in 2013.
As of now, we have the following understanding about this (mostly from rumours, forums and immigration consultants).
1. FSW 2013 currently does not talk about any priority occupation list, and all occupations listed under NOC 0, A and B could probably apply.
2. Anyone applying under FSW need to have their credentials assessed by a Canadian authority(the details are still awaited) and need to get a positive assessment of their educational qualifications and professional experience for the respective category.
3. Good English language skills (high IELTS scores) would fetch higher points on the points grid.

Nevertheless, we are unclear on the following information. If anyone has any info regarding this, please post so that it could help all of us who are currently waiting for Canada information.
1. For occupations under categories NOC 0, A or B, is there any discussion on the cap for the number of applications or number of PR visas which could be issued? This could especially be interesting to know for IT professionals as I have read in the forum that there is already an oversupply of IT professionals in Canada.
2. For the credential assessment, is anyone aware of how much this could potentially cost us? Also does anyone have any idea on how long this process could take? As a huge number of applicants have been waiting to file their applications for Canada, the number of assessments that need to be done by these authorities could be huge. Does CIC mention anything regarding the maximum possible time taken to do this assessment?
3. Also, most of the forums/news say that the new system will ensure that the applications in 2013 would be processed in a few months. What can one expect by few months? Can we assume like 3-4 months or >6 months?
Since in the case of Canada, if the assessment would be the major step and if for applications to be accepted on 4th May, 2013 need this assessment, then what is the big step after that?
4. Or does it mean that on 4th May 2013, CIC will start accepting applications for the assessment?

It is kind of important to know as much information as possible! Because as everyone knows, clock is ticking when it comes to immigration and where to go and whether to wait are important questions to answer!

Hope someone knows the answers!

Thanks,
Want2Move in 2013

Depends on your experience level, 0 to 5 years experience up to the level of junior sys admin or junior coder the market is flooded. And they don't pay well relative to UK or Ireland.

Similar jobs in Canada and Dublin are paying the same dollar to Euro so a 70K Eur0 job in Dublin gets you 70K CAD in Canada (maybe a touch more) and you're not going to support a family on that.



If you're a bit longer in the tooth, lots of relevant experience then the market opens up considerably and you or the company can make a greater case for your exact blend of skills and attributes not being readily available hence the LMO route.

And the rates improve but your still down or barely matching. However taxation is far better in Canada relative to Ireland so you can estimate net at 66% of gross unlike here where net is 58% of gross and you can apply for tax relief on childcare and not get taxed for requiring a company car to do your work!

Guys looks people are not quite clear on the Canada PR process since it is not as streamlined as Australia is. The process stand nowhere in comparison to that of Australia. First and the foremost steps is to check if your job is in the list of NOC codes published by CIC. And then get your education qualifications assessed. Do come up with your quries one by one, happy to answer.. for me i am done with my ECA, sent the application to CIC last week.. and as per their site it takes 2 months for them to acknowledge the application post which i would be getting any response..

Hi Arjun.... you would be required to get your copies of marksheets (DMCs) and the final degree for the degree you have completed to be attested from the Controller of examination of university or the registrar.
Ask the university guys to seal the envelope and give it to you. One you have that submit the form online and pay the fees (around 288 CAD $). Send the fee receipt , envelope from University and one more copies of marksheets and degree to the address which WES has specified on their site. You will get a original copy of assessment from WES in around 10-15 days. This needs to be submitted with application which you will file later.

I want to know about NOC. I have found my related category of Mechanical and Petroleum engineer. What should I do? Do we need any certificated for NOC as well.

Or we will use this NOC for filling the application category?

ijlal Siddiqui

Hi Ijlal, you would be required to submit the Roles and responsibilities letter from your employer while submitting the application. Also would be required to mentioned this NOC code on the cover page and in the application forms.
