Part of the 38 High Demand Occupations, in the prioritized Federal Skilled Workers Permanent Residents Application are Specialist Physicians as well as General Practitioners and Family Physicians

That means they are now eligible for 6-12 months processing under the new Federal Skilled Worker Program.

When is the right time to apply?

As I tell my clients, the only time that I can help them with their plans is when the conditions are still in their favor.

If you have the Education and Work experience to apply you should start right now!

Starting right away, is your only security to take advantage of this great opportunity. The list of Occupations may change at any time, but if you are already filed you will not be affected by any changes that may happen at the middle of your application process.
