FEDERAL SKILLED TRADES CLASS
The Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC) is one of the three programs running under the Express Entry system. The qualifying candidates may apply for permanent residence under the Express Entry selection system, by creating their profile and submitting an expression of interest to immigrate to Canada. Eligible candidates with a valid job offer or certification to work in certain occupations may apply under the FSTC. With no eligibility requirement to prove their level of education to enter the pool, the FSTC candidates may have lower CRS score than other Express Entry candidates.
