suitcase with a canadian flag on itIf you missed out applying under the federal skilled worker program last year because your occupation reached its cap, there’s good news.

CIC just announced a new list of occupations for applicants beginning May 1, 2014.  The overall cap is set at 25,000 applications for the next 12 months.  There are sub-caps of 1,000 for each of the 50 eligible occupations (I’ve listed them below, along with links to the NOC descriptions).

So if you are interested in applying under this program, do it quickly.  Last year, some of the occupation sub-caps were reached by the end of June.  If you like help applying, please feel free to contact me.

Remember, your job title does not necessarily have to match the titles below, but you must be able to show you performed the duties of each occupation (or at least a substantial number of them, depending on the circumstances).
