Second Specific Draw in 2019 for Federal Skilled Trades Class

In the 128th Federal Express Entry draw, the government of Canada has chosen to restrict the number of invitations to applicants who have an effective profile by the Federal Skilled Trades (F.S.T) program.

Applicants with profiles in the Class of Federal Skilled Worker (F.S.W) and Canadian Experience Class (C.E.C) were not counted for this draw.

The present Federal Skilled Trades special draw has announced 500 Invitations to Apply (I.T.As) to suitable candidates with a minimum required CRS score 357. To get eligibility for this program, applicants need to have a minimum of two years of full-time work experience in a skilled trade, along with a valid job offer and a minimum requirement of language CLB level 4.

As the I.R.C.C usually carries fewer program-specific draws every year, this latest draw is one of two Federal Trades Specific draws that have happened so far in 2019. The former Federal Skilled Trades specific draw happened on 15 May 2019.

Canadian recent skilled worker deficit, it was skilled trades such as welders, electricians, and mechanics that were the most in-demand professions. As Canada proceeds to add the latest jobs in every month, there will also remain to be a real need for skilled workers to meet these jobs. If you aspire to live and work in Canada, now is the most suitable time to begin the process.
