Canada Occupation In-Demand List 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:

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 370 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).

Frequently Asked Question

  • Which is the best paying job in Canada?

    Following are the top 10 best-paying jobs in Canada:

    • Nurse Practitioners  CAD $104,000
    • Dentist  CAD $93,600
    • Utilities Manager  CAD $114,000

  • It is still essential to meet the requirements if you are migrating to Canada without a job offer in 2021. Some of the requirements are:

    • Your profession must be in high demand, which ensures that you will get a job as soon as possible after immigrating to Canada in 2021
    • You must have a statement showing proof of funds guaranteeing that you will support your life while looking for a job there.

    • NOC 0013 Senior managers  financial, communications, and other business services
    • NOC 0015 Senior managers trade, broadcasting, and other services, n.e.c.
    • NOC 0111 Financial managers
    • NOC 0112 Human resources managers

Migrating to Canada through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) is a smart way to relocate primarily for those who were unable to meet the point requirement in the Express Entry program.

  • The average salary of an employee in Canada is around CAD $952 per week or just around CAD $50,000 a year.
