This assists in the application for the Canada Open Work Permit. A candidate may consider a job title as unskilled, but the duties performed by the candidate may be considered as skilled in the National Occupation Classification or NOC of Canada which should fall in O ( Managerial level), A( Professional level) B ( Technical Level) categories.

So, you should focus further on the job title and make a comparison of the duties performed by you against the different occupations that are mentioned in NOC and determine if they are considered skilled or not.

ITA and Provincial Nomination. ITA is the last stage of the Canada PR Application and Provincial Nomination is the middle stage of the process if an applicant is getting nominated.

This adds on to 950 points in the CRS score of the Express Entry, thereby increasing the very high chances of receiving an ITA.
