Nope, if it's a FSW category 2 (arranged employment) application, it just has to be a Skilled job for the 15 points, doesn't need to be related to 'the list'.

I think that the CF have pretty much closed the door to foreign applicants. Three or four years ago, the CF were having severe recruiting and retention difficulties and I several former colleagues managed to get in the the Canadian Navy. I applied in July last year and despite the fact that The category I was targetting was in distress and there are capped billets that I could fill, my application got nowhere. As a result of the economic slowdown, the CF are meeting their recruitment targets and I was told that theycannot be seen to be recruiting foreigners when they are turning away Canadians.

Having said that, a lot can change in 7 years!
