It doesn't matter if they're in demand in Canada or not, in immigration/visa terms a skilled worker is simply anybody that works in a job in Skill Level A, O or B on the NOC Matrix, literally thousands of jobs. They can be a firefighter, or a shop manager, or a teacher (or any other job that isn't in demand), they'd still qualify for PR.

It's a daft system really, because it means that a young teacher with a masters is far more likely to be selected from the pool and invited to apply for PR than a 38 year old plumber that left school at 16, despite the latter being much more likely to actually have skills that Canada needs and to be able to find work.
