Enroll for our Woodworking Certificate Programme and qualify for Canadian Immigration's permanent residence visa.
Wood Willing’s 3-month Woodworking Certificate program is designed to give amateurs and aspiring professionals a solid grounding in woodworking and furniture- making techniques that will enable them gain the requisite experience to immigrate to Canada permanently as a skilled worker.
Skills learned in the program include design and drafting, wood selection and preparation, joinery, traditional hand skills, sharpening, power tool techniques, and finishing. The curriculum has a strong focus on the integration of design in the woodworking process.
The Certificate begins with an analysis of trees and the wood they produce, an overview of felling and milling practices, and an introduction to the tactile essence of working with green wood. The program then moves into getting oriented to the tools of the woodshop and basic principles of wood movement and layout. Additional program segments include beginning furniture making, traditional handtool chairmaking, joinery, box making, small scale design/build, advanced furniture techniques, plywood cabinetry, live edge furniture and wood Finishes. The program culminates in a two-week studio where each student will design and build a piece of their own choosing.
Classes are generally scheduled 9am-5pm Monday through Friday, with some occasional weekend shop days and evening lectures/shop time. Students will have access to the shop over the weekends and in the evenings. Students are expected to take advantage of this time to complete their course projects.
All experience levels are welcome.

ADVANTAGES OF THE FEDERAL SKILLED WORKERS PROGRAMME OF THE CANADIAN IMMIGRATION.
Under the Federal Skilled Workers Program, you as a skilled carpenter can get Canada’s highly sought permanent resident visa without having millions in your bank account, if you can secure paid employment in Canada before applying.
Can easily secure a well-paying job in Canada as there’s a severe dearth of skilled workforce due to the aging population.
You, as a carpenter, are specially invited to apply by the Canadian government, so you are most likely to get a permanent residence through this route.
