The Canadian economy has seen a strong rebound after the Covid 19 pandemic, especially in several sectors in which growth has been rapid.
By the end of 2025, Canada will admit 500,000 immigrants a year, according to its Immigration Levels Plan 2023-2025. Canada’s high immigration targets are one of the key factors in its economic growth.
Almost 25% of Canada’s population identifies as immigrants, and Newcomers are well-suited to fill vacancies in the national labor force caused by a number of retirements and a lack of qualified candidates.
Some job areas stand out as the fastest expanding and have the most in-demand abilities.
Canadians are living longer lives and need more medical care for longer periods of time than prior generations. Because of the rising need, Canadian provinces are trying hard to attract foreign healthcare personnel. Currently, immigrants make up more than 35% of Canada’s physicians, 23% of registered nurses, and 39% of dentists.
Canada’s agriculture sector employs over 243,000 Canadians and currently has a job vacancy rate of more than 14,000.
A major investment included in the federal budget for 2023 is the allocation of $20 billion for clean energy and clean growth infrastructure projects, which will increase demand in the tech sector.
Earlier in other development, two Canadian provinces, British Columbia and Manitoba, sought invites for the Provincial Nominee Programme (PNP).
Just a few months before these drawings, a new Express Entry selection category was developed, in which PNP candidates were also evaluated. The Express Entry PNP drawings will continue at IRCC, however not all will be for the new categories.
Many PNP streams are mirrored in the selected category draws, and every province and territory in Canada (excluding Quebec and Nunavut) organises a PNP draw to invite applicants for certain vocations or National Occupation Classifications (NOC) codes or language competency.
