Canada welcomes skilled worker immigrants. Skilled workers have education, work experience, knowledge of English or French and other abilities that will help them to establish themselves successfully as permanent residents in Canada. Skilled worker applicants will have to show sufficient funds to support themselves during their period of initial establishment, unless they have a job offer validated by service Canada. The applicant’s funds will be assessed against the most current annual “Low Income Cut-Off” published by Statistics Canada established for the size of the applicants accompanying family. Canadian Immigration Officers can and do use their discretion to override the technical assessment. Where appropriate, OWICS can argue that your case be considered for positive discretion, in an attempt to secure immigration for you.
