Skilled workers are selected as permanent residents based on their education, work experience, knowledge of English and/or French, and other criteria that have been shown to help them become economically established in Canada.
The information and forms you need to apply as a federal skilled worker can be found on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website at http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/index.asp.
SkillsInternational.ca is an online searchable database that matches pre-screened, internationally educated professionals with employers who need their skills.
More than 79 agencies across Ontario who work with immigrants to provide connections to the labour market are able to post the résumés of qualified, screened applicants who are ready to work in a field related to their education and experience.
