Eligibility to apply for the Federal Skilled Trades Program (Express Entry)

February 18, 2019

Eligibility to apply for the Federal Skilled Trades Program (Express Entry)
The Federal Skilled Trades Program is for skilled workers who want to become permanent residents based on being qualified in a skilled trade.

Minimum requirements
To be eligible, you must:
·         Meet the required language levels for each language ability:
  •  writing
  •  reading
  •  listening
  •  speaking.

·         Have at least 2 years of full-time work experience (or an equal amount of part-time work experience) in a skilled trade within the 5 years before you apply,
·         Meet the job requirements for that skilled trade as set out in the National Occupational Classification, except for needing a certificate of qualification.

Skilled work experience
Skilled trades for the Federal Skilled Trades Program are organized under these groups of the National Occupational Classification (NOC):
  • ·         Major Group 72, industrial, electrical and construction trades
  • ·         Major Group 73, maintenance and equipment operation trades
  • ·         Major Group 82, supervisors and technical jobs in natural resources, agriculture and related production
  • ·         Major Group 92, processing, manufacturing and utilities supervisors and central control operators
  • ·         Minor Group 632, chefs and cooks
  • ·         Minor Group 633, butchers and bakers

The major NOC groups are subdivided into different occupations, and they are all skill type B.
You must show that you performed the duties set out in the lead statement of the occupational description in the NOC. This includes all the essential duties and most of the main duties listed.
If you do not show that your experience meets the description in the NOC, we won’t accept your application.

Federal Skilled Trades Program applications must be made based on the 2016 version of the NOC.

Education
There is no education requirement for the Federal Skilled Trades Program. But, if you want to improve your rank in the Express Entry pool, there are 2 ways you can do this.
  • If you went to school in Canada, you can get points for a certificate, diploma or degree from a Canadian:
  • ·         secondary (high school) or
  • ·         post-secondary school

OR
  • If you have foreign education, you can get points for:
  • ·         a completed foreign credential, and
  • ·         an Educational Credential Assessment report from an approved agency showing that your education is equal to a completed certificate, diploma or degree from a Canadian:
  •   secondary (high school) or
  •   post-secondary school


Language ability
You must:
·         meet the minimum score of Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 5 for speaking and listening, and Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 4 for reading and writing
·         take approved language tests for:
  •   writing
  •   reading
  •   listening
  •   speaking

·         enter the test results in your Express Entry profile
Your language tests are valid for 2 years after the date of the test result. They must be valid on the day you apply for permanent residence.

Admissibility
You must be admissible to Canada.

Where you can live in Canada
You must plan to live outside the province of Quebec. The province of Quebec selects its own skilled workers. If you plan on living in Quebec, see Quebec-selected skilled workers for more information.

Get assessed by the province or territory
You will likely have to go to the province or territory to be assessed for your trade. You may also need an employer in Canada to give you experience and training.
To learn more about getting assessed, you should go to the website of the body that governs trades for the province/territory where you would like to live and work. The process is different depending on where you want to go.
Each website has more details about certificates of qualification to work in that province or territory in a specific skilled trade, and what you have to do to get one.
If your trade is not regulated by a province or territory (for example, airplane mechanic), it may be federally regulated. You can find out who regulates your trade by visiting The Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials website.

b. The Act also stipulates that “no person shall have a non-citizen in his employment in Mauritius without there being in force a valid permit in relation to that employment.” For this purpose, Work Permits for non-citizens are issued by the Employment Division of the Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations, Employment and Training (MLIRET) under the Non- Citizens (Employment Restriction) Act 1973.

e. In case of application for groups of workers and / or skilled workers, a request for Permission in Principle has to made to the MLIRET

i. Where the expatriate is being deputed and remunerated by a foreign company, a deputation letter has to be produced.

D. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
a. Applications for work permit from overseas companies will only be accepted if the companies are incorporated in Mauritius as a foreign company, under the Company Laws of Mauritius.

e. For renewal of work permits, the employer should indicate any amendment in the terms of the contract of employment. If any, the employer should have the amendments vetted by the Labour Division of the Ministry of Labour, Industrial Relations, Employment and Training prior to submission of the application.
f. For certain grades, employers may be required, within 3 months from the date of issue of work permit, to appoint a suitable local counterpart to be trained by the expatriate during his/her posting in Mauritius.

j. Companies should submit applications for renewal of work permits in respect of their workers 3 months prior to the expiry of their current work permits.

Australia’s Northern Territory Designated Area Migration Agreement

January 30, 2019

DAMA (DESIGNATED AREA MIGRATION AGREEMENT)

DAMA for Northern Territory

The new Northern Territory Designated Area Migration Agreement (NT DAMA) lets the Northern Territory (NT) employers sponsor skilled and semi-skilled overseas workers for positions they are unable to fill with local workers. It is the second version of the NT DAMA and applies to the whole of the NT and is tailored to address current and emerging labor market shortages and local terms and cuonditions of employment.

NT DAMA utilizes the labor agreement stream of the Temporary Skill Shortage visa (subclass 482), businesses enter into a labor agreement with the Australian Government and workers are then granted a subclass 482 visa.

Note: The NT DAMA is an employer-sponsored visa program and individual workers cannot apply for a visa independently.

The key elements of NT DAMA are:

  • pathways to permanent residency for NT DAMA visa holders (including transitional arrangements for existing visa holders)
  • a broad range of occupations that reflect NT skilled and semi-skilled shortages, with no caveats to apply
  • English language concessions for some occupations
  • salary concessions that reflect NT market rates, ensuring that worker terms and conditions of employment are not eroded, and NT businesses and consumers are not subjected to inflationary costs
  • a range of risk and integrity actions to ensure that the rights of both employees and employers are protected
  • a five-year agreement to reduce red tape.

Users of the Northern Territory Designated Area Migration Agreement

Businesses can access the NT DAMA if they are actively operating in the NT and:

  • are viable and have been operating for at least 12 months
  • have no history of not meeting its obligations to employees
  • are looking to employ overseas workers to fill full-time positions with duties that align with one of the occupations on the NT DAMA list
  • can demonstrate they cannot fill the position locally with Australian citizens or permanent residents
  • can provide terms and conditions of employment to overseas workers that are in accordance with those offered to Australian workers employed in the region.

Occupations included in the agreement

The table shows occupations that are eligible for sponsorship under the Northern Territory Designated Area Migration Agreement (NT DAMA).

It also shows the concessions that may be applied.

Your business can seek a Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold (TSMIT) concession. However, there must be a strong business case provided to support a TSMIT concession.

Your business has to show that the salary offered to a prospective overseas worker is at least what an Australian citizen or permanent resident could expect doing the same job in the same location.

Temporary Skilled Migration Income Threshold concessions

All workers employed under the DAMA must be employed under Australian employment conditions and receive no less than what an Australian would to undertake the same job in the same location.

Many employers sponsored visa programs, including the standard TSS program, have a minimum threshold that can be paid. The TSMIT which currently sits at $53,900 also applies.

The TSMIT concessions available for employers are:

Concession type 1 – up to a 10% concession to the TSMIT

Businesses must demonstrate the annual monetary earnings provided will be no less than 90% of the TSMIT, ie no less than $48,510.

Concession type 2 – up to a 10% concession to the TSMIT, and the inclusion of non-monetary earnings (other)

Businesses must demonstrate that the annual earnings provided will be no less than 90% of the TSMIT, ie no less than $48,510.

These annual earnings can be comprised of ‘non-monetary earnings (other)’ to the value of up to $4,851. Non-monetary earnings (other) refers to benefits other than food and board (eg, phone, vehicle, flights).

Concession type 3 – up to a 10% concession to the TSMIT less non-monetary earnings (food and board)

Businesses must demonstrate that the annual earnings provided will be no less than 90% of the TSMIT, ie no less than $48,510.

These annual earnings can be comprised of ‘non-monetary earnings (food and board)’. This refers to accommodation and meals benefits and cannot exceed published homestay accommodation rates for the NT. For more information on homestay rates go to the Northern Territory Government website.

Non-monetary earnings (other) refers to benefits other than food and board (eg, phone, vehicle, flights) and is capped at $4,851.

Concession type 4 – up to a 10% concession to the TSMIT less non-monetary earnings (all)

Businesses must demonstrate that the annual earnings provided will be no less than 90% of the TSMIT, ie no less than $48,510.

These annual earnings can be comprised of ‘non-monetary earnings (food and board)’ and ‘non-monetary earnings (other)’. Non-monetary earnings (food and board) refers to accommodation and meals benefits and cannot exceed published homestay accommodation rates for the NT.

Important:

Employers that seek concessions based on non-monetary benefits provided to overseas workers must ensure the:

  • benefits support the living costs of the overseas worker, and
  • overseas worker would have incurred that cost had it not been provided by the approved sponsor, and
  • benefits are quantifiable, and
  • benefits are consistent with terms and conditions provided to existing Australians employed in a similar position, and
  • benefits are guaranteed in the employment contract, and
  • benefits exclude contingent payments such as overtime (other than guaranteed overtime), bonuses and commissions.
