Low-skilled or semi-skilled work generally includes work in the trades, primary and manufacturing industries, sales and services, as well as specific clerical and assistant roles.

Employment and Social Development Canada (“ESDC”) has categorized low-skilled labour for immigration purposes. Low-skilled and semi-skilled workers have been classified into the following two (2) National Occupational Classification (“NOC”) categories:

  • Skill Type C, which includes occupations that usually require a secondary school and/or occupation-specific training; and
  • Skill Type D, which includes occupations for which on-the-job training is provided.

If you require assistance preparing a work permit application, particularly in relation to the mandate to be performed in Canada and the appropriate NOC coding, whether in relation to changing employers as a result of termination or otherwise, please contact Toronto employment and immigration lawyers, Sultan Lawyers, at (416) 214-5111 or via email to mlahert@sultanlawyers.com.
