Canada's new class for immigration targets UAE applicants
Federal Skilled Trades Class open to selected trades persons with experience in occupational areas
The Citizenship & Immigration Canada (CIC) announced proposed amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) referred to as the 3-pronged approach. The approach includes the introduction of a new class - the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC).

"The new FSTC is open to selected tradespersons with experience in the occupational areas," explains Deepak Kohli, President of Transcend Consultants, a regulated Canadian-based immigration consultancy office.
"This is a pass/fail system, meaning that the applicants are assessed based on a set of criteria (as compared to a points system). The applicants meeting all the criteria are selected."
The minimum criteria to be met for the FSTC class are the following:
·         Ability to work in one of the trades (up to 2 job offers or assessed qualifications);
·         Proficiency in official languages (minimum CLB 5);
·         Previous work experience in the selected trades (minimum 2 years full-time); and
