Due to Canada’s diverse population, there is always a huge demand for professional cooks, chefs and foodservice workers having experience in foreign cuisines. If you too dream to immigrate to Canada as a chef, get your golden ticket now!

Skilled chefs and cooks are in-demand occupations in Canada and are listed under the National Occupation Classification (NOC) 6321. Those who are looking to immigrate to Canada as a Chef have several Canadian immigration programs to choose from.

Immigration Pathways to Canada PR as a Chef

Express Entry- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)

The FSTP is managed under the Federal Express Entry system and is exclusively designed for prospective migrants demonstrating skill and expertise in specific industries or occupations.

To qualify for Federal Skilled Trades Program, you must have a minimum of two years of work experience either full-time or equivalent amount of part-time in any skilled trade. Also, the occupation must fall under the relevant NOC.

Additionally, there is no specific criteria for minimum education, so whether you have a high school graduation degree or a PhD, you are eligible to apply.

In order to qualify and enter the Express Entry pool of candidates under FSTP, you must:

  • Meet the minimum language proficiency requirement for all four abilities, i.e. writing, reading, listening and speaking for which you may take online IELTS coaching from experienced trainers

  • Have valid full-time employment offer for minimum 1 year or a "certificate of qualification" issued by a provincial, federal or territorial authority in Canada in a skilled trade
  • You must demonstrate that you have enough proof of funds to financially support yourself and your accompanying family (if any) in Canada only if you are not able to legally work in Canada currently or don't have a valid job offer from a Canadian employer
