The Skilled worker comprises the main body of Canadian immigrants. In 2006,
immigrants under the skilled worker category, from both federal and provincial
programs, accounted for approximately 50% of all immigrants into Canada.
Skilled workers have proven to be an important source of the Canadian labor
market. Middle and lower level skilled workers are also welcome and valued for
their trade and labour skills.

experience. Many people who work in some professions are skilled and do not
realise that they could apply under the skilled worker category.
