Government of Canada Launches Category-Based Selection for Express Entry, Prioritizing Specific Professions and French Language Proficiency

In an attempt to address the labor shortages across the country, the Government of Canada has announced the introduction of category-based selection for its economic immigration management system, Express Entry. The move aims to create an immigration system that responds to economic and labor market needs, while also emphasizing the importance of French language proficiency. This initiative will impact the selection process for prospective permanent residents.

The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, unveiled the new selection process, which will allow Canada to issue invitations to apply to candidates with specific skills, training, or language ability. Details regarding the timing of invitations for individual categories and instructions on how to apply will be released in the coming weeks.

This year, the category-based selection will prioritize candidates with a strong French language proficiency or work experience in specific fields. These fields include healthcare, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professions, trades such as carpenters, plumbers, and contractors, transport, and agriculture and agri-food sectors.

The government claims that this approach will support Canada’s commitment to welcoming in-demand professionals into communities nationwide. Additionally, the government asserts that focusing on Francophone immigration will ensure the preservation of French-speaking communities in Canada.

The introduction of category-based selection aims to make Express Entry more responsive to the changing economic and labor market needs of the country. More details to follow.

Thanks Jenny and Devika for providing exceptional service. Dealt with them for the second case, they kept me in loop for the whole process. Highly recommend using them again which in hindsight I will not have to but if you ever need legal help, they are definitely the people to go to!
