The Canadian government has announced a category-based selection in its express entry draws for immigrants.
Last year, the government announced plans to resume the programme.
The category of fields includes science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) occupations, healthcare occupations, trade, agriculture, agri-food, among others.
In a recent statement, Sean Fraser, Canada’s minister of immigration, refugees, and citizenship, said the job selection would favour applicants with strong proficiency in the French Language
The categories were chosen by legislative mandates which the minister engages in public consultation with provinces and territories, industry representatives, unions, employers, workers, worker advocacy groups, settlement provider organisations, and immigration researchers and practitioners.”
He added that interested candidates to be given an invitation through a category-based round must meet all of the requirements in the instructions for that round.

The way Express Entry works has changed over time. Make sure you check which Ministerial Instructions respecting the Express Entry System apply to your round to see how to calculate your CRS points.
