New Immigration Program in 2013

A new immigration program aimed at getting skilled workers into Canada faster will start on Jan. 2.

Immigration Minister Jason Kenney says the new rules will help address labour shortages.

To qualify, applicants will need to already have a job offer or be pre-qualified by a province or territory.

They’ll also have to meet language requirements and have a minimum of two years of work experience in a skilled trade.

The program will accept a maximum of 3,000 applications in the first year.

The federal government is working with provinces, territories and labour groups to draw up a list of occupations that will be eligible.

It’s expected to include electricians, welders, heavy equipment mechanics and pipefitters.
