Dramatic changes have been made in Canada Immigration Rules 2013 edition. Canadian government is committed to laying an elaborate and responsive migration framework at the disposal of all parties linked to the migration. Migration policy has been marred by indecision and delayed assessment process in the past and these changes were actually on cards.
Some substantial inconsistencies were observed in the older migration regulation statutes. It was reported by different surveys that were carried out to gauge the efficiency and effectivity of the erstwhile policy that many of new entrants were finding it hard to settle down in the country because of their inability to grab an appropriate job in their area of profession (due to linguistic skill deficit and irrelevant employment exposure). They were instead forced by the situation to take up odd jobs like driving cabs and selling merchandise at counters of stores and super markets.
Moreover old Canadian immigration Rules had many loopholes and serious deficiencies that created considerable hurdles in fulfilling the defined objectives of the skills migration.
Canadian employment giving agencies encountered acute and pinching deficit in sufficiently trained basic trade professionals which made it hard for them to sustain their productivity. Employers in maple countries have always sought migrants in basic trades as the local labor pool does not simply have the capacity to cater to growing needs of economy.
This problem was further amplified by inability of FSW program to tackle this huge burning issue successfully. FSW was a general program and focused on highly skilled people and the parameters set out for qualification took the basic trades migration out of reach of basic tradesmen. This made it necessary for the government to plan complete overhaul and substantial alterations in Canada Immigration Rules 2013 version.
The modifications in rule book are accentuated by creation of FSTP for basic trade professionals which has been opened to migrants on 2nd January 2013. This class focuses only on those blue collar jobs (defined in tabulation A and B) that are required by various employment giving sectors at floor level (i.e. machinists, mechanics, operators, carpenters and welders etc.) especially construction sector which is expected to grow dramatically over next decade or so.
These changes to Canada Immigration Rules have enabled the authorities to detach specific trades from FSW scheme and establish an independent class with an independent set of rules to guide it. To facilitate an easy access to country for tradesmen various parameters have been pitched in a scaled down pattern and this class sans many prelims.
