New Express Entry Category Options For Priority Jobs

To help fill Canada's job vacancies, the government has announced new initiatives to welcome skilled immigrants. Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has announced new Express Entry category options for priority jobs for skilled workers with work experience in categories that match business labour needs. The first category-based invitations to apply are expected to be sent this summer.

Canadian employers need to hire skilled workers for jobs in a range of categories to address ongoing labour shortages to support the country's economic growth. The Canadian Government of Canada is focused on building an immigration system that "acts as a catalyst for growth, empowering businesses, helping address their labour needs and strengthening French communities. When combined, these efforts will ensure Canadians benefit from economic and social prosperity for years to come."

The adoption of category-based selection in Express Entry will enhance Canada's adaptability to the nation's evolving economic and labour market requirements while maintaining the focus on high human capital that has characterized its thriving economic immigration system.

New Express Entry Category Options

Canada's New Express Entry category options focus on skilled workers who have a strong French language proficiency or work experience in the following fields:

  • healthcare
  • science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professions
  • trades, such as carpenters, plumbers and contractors
  • transport
  • agriculture and agri-food

Canada's Express Entry System

Express Entry is Canada’s flagship application management system for those seeking to immigrate permanently through the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, the Canadian Experience Class and a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program.

“Everywhere I go, I’ve heard loud and clear from employers across the country who are experiencing chronic labour shortages. These changes to the Express Entry system will ensure that they have the skilled workers they need to grow and succeed. We can also grow our economy and help businesses with labour shortages while also increasing the number of French-proficient candidates to help ensure the vitality of French-speaking communities. Put simply, Canada’s immigration system has never been more responsive to the country’s social or economic needs.”

– The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship
