Occupation In Demand List

Canada Occupation In-Demand List 2022-2023

Canada introduced Express Entry, an application management system, in January 2015. It replaced the previous “first come, first serve” immigration system and used a point-based ranking system – CRS (Comprehensive Ranking System) for managing the applications of immigrants who have applied for Canada PR Visa through the following three major federal economic immigration programs:
  • Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
  • Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
  • Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

It is the fastest immigration pathway to apply for a PR Visa with an ideal application that takes around 6 to 8 months to process. Under the FSW, candidates who have work experience in 347 eligible occupations can submit their Expression of Interest (EOI) profile in the express entry pool. With the use of CRS, all the profiles are ranked in the express entry pool.

The highest-ranked profiles are then invited through frequently held express entry draws to apply for PR Visa. Candidates with an ITA have 60 days to submit their PR Visa application to the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada).
