Revised Eligible Occupations List for Canadian Federal Skilled Workers Program

May 6, 2013 Foreign Job Seekers

A very important resource for foreign job seekers to be aware of is the Eligible Occupations List for the Canadian Federal Skilled Workers program.

Now, up front, I am not an Immigration Expert. I want to share this list with you and provide access to the resource. I have pasted the Eligible Occupations list from May 4th, 2013 below in blue. Below that you will find the link to the original government source. There you will be able to further review details and options for Foreign Job Seekers and Canadian Employers. I hope you find this helpful.
