The Federal Skilled Trades Program allows individuals with a valid job offer or a certificate of qualification to obtain permanent residence in any Canadian province or territory other than Quebec. Under the FSTP, you can apply for a permanent residence to Canada if you qualify in a skilled trade.

In industrial, electrical and construction trades
In maintenance and equipment operation trades
Supervisors, or work in technical jobs in natural resources, agriculture and related production
Processing, manufacturing and utilities supervisors and central control operators
