How to Immigrate to Canada as a Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic

The first stage in your Canadian immigration process is to calculate your Canada Immigration points for Express Entry using the Canadian Comprehensive Ranking System.

CRS Points are awarded for (amongst other things)



English ability

French ability

Your partner’s skills

Work experience

As well as providing you with important CRS points these factors also count towards your overall Immigration Points score which must equal or exceed a total of 67

Take our free online visa assessment for an up to date report on whether you have enough points to immigrate to Canada as a heavy duty equipment mechanic from both an Express Entry and Immigration points perspective.

Once you receive an ITA (Invitation to apply) from Canadian Immigration as a result of your Express Entry application you’ll only have 60 days in which to lodge a formal application so under no circumstances should you lodge an Express Entry application ‘claiming’ to have certain points without first having all of your points verified through different testing, education equivalence certificates and skilled trades assessments.

Once you are invited to apply for your Canada Visa you cannot go back and have these things verified retrospectively, they must be done before you claim any points for them and given that your express entry profile is only valid for one year it makes sense to present the best possible case right from the start.

Skills Assessment to Immigrate to Canada as a Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic

The process of getting your heavy duty equipment mechanical skills, experience and qualifications verified is called Skills Assessment and it serves two purposes.

Canada Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanical Skills Assessment purpose one: With a positive skills assessment you’ll be able to claim the requisite points on both the Express Entry CRS and eventual Federal Skilled Trades application.

Canada Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanical Skills Assessment purpose two: Your positive skills assessment will also double as your Red Seal qualification so having your heavy duty equipment mechanical skills assessed means that you’ll be qualified to work as a heavy duty equipment mechanic in Canada from day one.

How to get registered to Immigrate to Canada as a heavy duty equipment mechanic

As part of your immigration process, your dedicated Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanics Canada account manager will arrange for your Red Seal equivalency process so there’s no need to worry about how to move to Canada; we’ll have you covered from the moment you get the ball rolling.

Can I immigrate to Canada as a Heavy Duty Equipment without a job offer?

The answer is a resounding yes, providing you have a reasonable total CRS score on your Express Entry application and can meet the 67 immigration point threshold for your Canada Federal Skilled Trades Visa.

Technically there is no minimum CRS score required to submit a Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic Canada Express Entry profile.

Of course, securing a job offer (documented in the right way for immigration purposes i.e. LMT) will give you an instant CRS boost of 600 points so it makes sense to start this process as soon as is practical.

Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic Jobs in Canada
