Category-Based Express Entry Draws
Sean Fraser, Canada’s former Immigration Minister, has announced the implementation of category-based selection draws targeting Express Entry candidates. These draws aim to attract a greater number of highly skilled professionals specializing in specific occupations that are in high demand within Canada.
The new categories under the Express Entry Programs are:
- Healthcare occupations
- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) occupations
- Trade occupations
- Transport occupations
- Agriculture and Agri-food occupations
- French-language proficiency
IRCC reviews these categories each year and may change them in the next year.
