The term "skilled worker" is applied to people with a profession, technical education or specific training in certain qualified job or craft.

In other words, "skilled workers" are those who have a specific education or training and a sound work experience that allows for a success in a qualified job in Canada. This class of immigration includes professionals, engineers, technicians and technical experts who qualify according to the needs in Canada, provided they meet the necessary requirements.
