How to Immigrate to Canada as a Jeweller?

Can I immigrate to Canada as a Jeweller?

If you’re looking to immigrate to Canada as a Jeweller you’re in luck! Jewellers are in demand right across Canada and you may be able to secure a Canadian Permanent Residency Visa either with or without a job offer.

No doubt you will have read online that having a job offer to move to Canada is a prerequisite to accessing the Express Entry process but as a jeweller, you also have other options to secure your Canada Visa from the start.

For starters, Jewellers are eligible to apply to immigrate to Canada under the Canadian Government’s Immigration program due to the demand for Jewellers in Canada being so great they have included the occupation on the targeted occupations list, known as the NOC list (National Occupation Code List).




The code for Jewellers on the NOC is 6344

This is great news for qualified Jewellers the world over hoping to live and work in Canada.

Express Entry for Canada is not a visa class at all, it is simply the method (or database) that Canadian Immigration uses to select the right candidates for a permanent residency visa and in that case, as a jeweller looking to immigrate to Canada we’ll be looking at the Federal Skilled Trades visa and Provincial Nominee program.

Jewellers from all over the world are eligible to make an Express Entry for Jeweller Canada Residency providing they have the right skills, experience and qualifications in their home country.

Jewellers looking to move to Canada to work under this NOC category 6344, might be employed under work titles including:

apprentice jeweller

bench moulder – jewellery

brass or bronze chaser

clock repairer

clock repairman/woman

clockmaker

custom bracelet maker

All these roles held by jewellers are eligible to apply under this specific NOC category of 6344

Tasks for those looking to Immigrate to Canada as a Jeweller

In general jewellers moving to Canada will be able to demonstrate knowledge or experience of the following:

Jewellers and related workers perform some or all of the following duties:

Fabricate and repair precious and semi-precious metal jewellery, such as rings, brooches, pendants, bracelets and lockets

Examine, cut, shape and polish diamonds using optical instruments, lathes and laps

Examine, cut, shape and polish precious and synthetic gems using optical instruments, cutting disks and laps

Appraise gemstones and diamonds to differentiate between stones, identify rare specimens and to detect peculiarity affecting stone values

Set precious and semi-precious stones in jewellery mountings, according to specifications

May supervise other jewellers.

Jewellers may specialize in certain kinds of jewellery, such as gold or silver, or in particular operations, such as fabrication or repair.

Whilst the above is meant as a general guide do take our free online visa assessment for further information and be sure to list out your skills and qualifications in detail.




Emigrate Canada has a dedicated Jewellers Canada desk that only represents qualified jewellers immigrate to Canada. They understand your profession and can talk your language when it comes to explaining your immigration pathway and the route to securing a Canada Visa for you (and your family).

Qualifications Required to Immigrate to Canada as a Jeweller

In the UK, for example, we’ll be looking for NVQ Level III

From South Africa, you will be expected to hold your Red Seal

We’re happy to represent Jeweller clients from all over the World so regardless of your country of qualification feel free to contact us today for a full breakdown of your Canadian Immigration chances.

How to Immigrate to Canada as a Jeweller

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)

Age

Qualifications

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 jeweller 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 Jeweller

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

Canada Jeweller 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 Jeweller Skills Assessment purpose two: Your positive skills assessment will also double as your Red Seal qualification so having your Jeweller skills assessed means that you’ll be qualified to work as a jeweller in Canada from day one.

How to get registered to Immigrate to Canada as a Jeweller

As part of your immigration process, your dedicated Jewellers 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 Jeweller 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 Jeweller 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.

Jeweller Jobs in Canada

Occupations on the Canada NOC list can be classed as being ‘in demand’ and the jeweller’s code 6344 has been firmly established on the list for many years with lots of opportunities right across the country.

As a qualified new and highly skilled Permanent resident of Canada, you may work full time from day one, either as a direct employee, contractor or in a self-employed capacity. Jeweller jobs in Canada are often better paid than in the UK, Europe and Asia and Canadian employment law respects the work-life balance. Additionally, Jewellers in Canada are highly unionised which whilst sounds like a dirty word in many parts of the world is actually instrumental in championing better pay and conditions right across the Country.

The Canadian Jewellery Industry Magazine is called Canadian Jeweller.

Emigrate Canada are the Jeweller Canada Visa specialists with a dedicated Skilled Trades desk ideally placed to take care of not just your immigration paperwork, but also to get you registered to work from day one.

Immigrate to Canada as a Jeweller now.  There has never been a better time and Canada is currently open to immigration.  Start your Canadian Journey now.
