      Canada Opens Doors to Tradespeople

      Canada plans to speed up the entry process for thousands of foreign skilled tradespeople, to help booming industries "desperately crying out" for workers.

      A new permanent residency scheme will be introduced from January 2, Canadian immigration minister Jason Kenney announced yesterday.

      It is aimed at foreigners with at least two years of experience in a registered trade, including electricians, welders, heavy-duty equipment mechanics, pipefitters and others.

      They are needed by Canada’s oil, gas and construction industries that have been boosted by high commodity prices and a resilient domestic economy.

      Mr Kenney said employers were “desperately crying out for skilled tradespeople to help them fuel their expansion, their growth and our economy’s prosperity”.
