My simplified review of listed occupations

A first glance review of the list is very encouraging. Following broad categories of listed and permitted occupations immediately come to mind:

  • Computer and Information technology Engineers and professionals
  • Financial auditors, accountants and managers; mostly they will means Chartered accountants, cost accountants. Company secretaries, financial and investment analyst
  • Health occupations and professions
  • Managerial occupations in Hospitality sector like accommodations and Restaurant managers
  • Trades occupations in Hospitality sector like Cooks and chefs
  • Engineering and Supervisory trade occupations in mining, oil, Gas and petroleum
  • Engineering and supervisory trade occupations in construction and civil
  • University professors and college and vocational teachers

Conclusions from above summary of broad categories of listed occupations:

  • Majority of identified occupations has many sub-occupation mentions and many applicants may actually be qualifying though their occupation does not appear to be figuring on the face of mentioned occupations. A clear and comprehensive understanding of NOC and its related aspects is critically and very important.
  • Almost all general skilled occupations like Sales, marketing, administration, teachers, human resources, bookkeeping etc do not appear in this list and hence are not likely to succeed

    for immigration under point based system announced for federal general skills program.

  • It is highly unlikely that they will be able to get an arranged employment offer from a Canadian employer as enough human resources under the general skills occupations are available locally and within Canada.
  • It will be best that they look for filing immigration applications to another country like Australia, UK, New Zealand, Denmark etc
  • Applicants who are high net worth individual and with business experience should consider filing their applications under one of the business and investor visas options.
