                 Federal Skilled Trades Class

                 Canadian Experience Class

Under EE draw, IRCC issues ITA to candidates with the highest-ranking to apply for Canada PR. All the candidates who get their ITAs must submit their final application, relevant documents and fees within 60 days.
