Alberta Red Seal Test

The Red Seal test is often a requirement for trade workers in Canada and a requirement to secure a visa. In Alberta it is not always necessary to hold a Red Seal to be a trade worker except in professions which could result in a person being harmed if not completed correctly, an example would be an electrician.

The best option would be for you to secure an employer who would be willing to complete a Labour Market Impact Assessment and secure a licence to employ overseas trades workers. If you have held an F.T.W visa before then you will know some of these employers.

Due to your age, it would be difficult for you to enter Canada under the Express Entry system, even if you secured a provincial nomination. Once you are in Canada and employed you can look to making your stay a permanent one. I hope this helps.
