February 26, 2013 (Newswire) - Last month, Citizenship and Immigration Canada started accepting applications for a new Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the experienced immigration law firm Niren and Associates has been helping skilled trade workers from around the world to take advantage and immigrate to various locations throughout Canada. These changes were much needed to help Canada deal with labour shortages that the country had been facing.
Unfortunately, because the current Federal Skilled Worker Program had not been focused on foreign tradespersons, this accomplishment was difficult for CIC until now. For instance, the construction trade is one of the larger trades in Canada and the new Federal Skilled Trade Program will allow immigrants with a trade certification to immigrate to Canada easily and quickly. The Construction Council estimated that by 2020, Canada will need 160,000 foreign skilled trade workers, which is equivalent to approximately 23,000 foreign skilled workers per year.
As a result of the increased immigration opportunities, an increase of applicants are vying for what still amounts to a limited number of positions. This is where Niren and Associates has been a huge asset for qualifying skilled workers. For many years, the Toronto immigration lawyers have been assisting foreign skilled workers to immigrate to Canada and the United States. Since the Federal Skilled Trades Program is very new, and many individuals in trades have been unable to immigrate to Canada under the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Niren and Associates is now offering their clients both telephone and in-person consultations so that they can gain more knowledge and assistance with this type of immigration application.
This immigration assistance is not only offered to immigrant tradespersons but also to employers who are in need of tradespersons in the construction industry. The expert lawyers at Niren and Associates have assisted thousands of immigrants over the last 25 years with very high success rates in all areas of Canadian and U.S. immigration.
Not only will the Federal Skilled Trades Program be a great asset for Canada's economy, but Niren and Associates (www.visaplace.com) will be at forefront of this new program by assisting both tradespersons and employers in need of tradespersons with the immigration process under this new program.
