The government here has various programs regarding immigration and who they want to come to the country. One of those programs is for skilled workers. My Google-something-for-a-minute-and-claim-it's-a-comprehensive-search diligence having been completed, here's a list of professions being targeted that doesn't seem to appear on the government's immigration site:
These all may change of course - this list comes prior to a lot of potential changes and it's 2012 and 2011 was SO LONG AGO - but it interests me to see what the government thinks we need. My own impression was that we were somewhat snootier and imported lots of experts just to fuck them on the labour market, but what's on the list isn't especially egghead-oriented. (While I feel we are blessed in Vancouver, I take no issue whatsoever with the importation of talented foreign cooks and chefs.) Here's a very boring evaluation of the program so far.
