List of eligible occupation and Cap limits for 2014

On Wednesday, April 23, 2014, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) announced new occupations and caps for the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) Program. Additional important information has been announced for the Federal Skilled Trades (FST) Program and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) Program. This is the last chance for candidates to file applications under the said programs. They will be all replaced as of January 1, 2015 by the new 'Express Entry'program.
Thenew changes go into effect for all three programs on May 1, 2014 and will only operate for the next eight months.
Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander says the launch of a new immigration system that would offer 'express entry' to skilled immigrants looking to come to Canada as permanent residents is 'a top priority' for his department. (Adrian Wyld/The Canadian Press)
