I am new to this forum and was browsing thru the cic.gc.ca website and was looking on "Skilled workers and professionals" program and on eligible programs page "cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/skilled/apply-who-instructions.asp#eligible" my profession is not listed. I am a software engineer and I fall under the 217* code. what does this mean?
It means you would have to get a job offer before you would qualify under the Skilled Worker program. Read the program info for Arranged Employment.
