Canada has posted a list of job categories that will be given priority for the Express Entry visa. Teaching, building, and plumbing are on the list, among other jobs, because the country wants to meet the needs of the labor market and close the gap in these fields.
The Express Entry system will make it easier for skilled foreign workers in the top job categories to get a visa.
To get skilled people from all over the world to move to Canada, the government has announced a list of jobs that will get priority for the highly sought-after fast entry visa.
Canada’s Immigration Minister, Sean Fraser, said this. He also said that the move is meant to meet the needs of the country’s labor market and give foreign workers a chance to use their skills and fill key roles in the Canadian workforce.
He also said that Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) would give priority to people who applied for express entry and had a high level of French language skills or work experience in certain areas.
- Engineering and Math (STEM) jobs.
- Trades (like carpenters, plumbers, and contractors).
- And agri-food.
Why does Canada give these jobs priority for Express Entry Visas?
Fraser said that the country could keep its promise to let in-demand professionals into communities across the country by letting in more skilled workers in the chosen fields.
He also said that it would help with long-term worker shortages and make French-speaking towns stronger.
The head of immigration also said he was sure that Canada’s immigration system now meets the country’s social and economic needs better than ever before.
He said, “Employers all over the country have been worried about long-term worker shortages. “This will be fixed by the changes to the Express Entry system, which will bring in skilled workers to help the economy, companies, and growth.
“Also, we want to help French-speaking areas by getting more candidates who can speak French. Canada’s immigration system now meets our social and economic needs better than ever.”
