The Federal Skilled Trades Program is for skilled workers who want to become permanent residents based on being qualified in a skilled trade. This is one of three federal immigration programs managed by the Express Entry system.
As with all Express Entry programs, FST uses the Comprehensive
Ranking System (CRS) to rank interested candidates against one another to chose the most competitive candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence.
The program allows qualified tradespersons from around the world to immigrate to Canada permanently.
