Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)

The Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) is one of the programs that is managed by the Express Entry immigration system. The FSTP is designed for foreign trade workers with work experience in eligible trade occupations to immigrate to Canada.

It is not the only pathway for skilled workers to apply for permanent residence in Canada. There are also other ways to immigrate to Canada in an unskilled capacity but this will not be through a fast-track program like this one under Express Entry.

The first step is to check if you qualify as a skilled trade worker according to the federal government. You can then apply through the Express Entry system. In addition, you will also need to have a valid job offer/certificate of qualification in order to be considered eligible.

Achieving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from the Express Entry system is your ultimate goal to be considered for permanent residence in every province of Canada (apart from Québec) and with the exception of receiving a provincial nomination from a Canadian province or territory. You will then need to settle in the province/territory that endorsed you.

A Quick Overview of the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)

In order to be eligible to apply for the Federal Skilled Trades Program, you will need to meet certain criteria (some of which overlaps with the Express Entry system’s CRS standards) in order to assess your suitability for the program before you can create your profile through Express Entry.

What Are the Requirements of the Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)?

Minimum Requirements
A full-time job offer from a Canadian employer for a total period of at least 1-year OR a certificate of qualification* from a provincial, territorial, or federal governing body
Language proficiency score in French or English measured by the Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) or the Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens (NCLC). (Level 4 for writing + reading and level 5 for listening + speaking)
At least 2-years of full-time work experience within the last 5 years
Ability to demonstrate that you meet the job requirements of your skilled trade
You must show that you have enough money for you and your family to settle in Canada unless you have a valid job offer or can legally work in Canada.

*This certificate must be obtained from a transference of qualifications exam written in Canada.
