IRCC breaks down targets for category based draws in Express Entry invitations

IRCC began holding category-based Express Entry draws towards the end of June 2023 . A total of six categories have been chosen to achieve specific economic goals including meeting the skilled labor demands in certain occupations.

These categories include the following:

  1. French-language proficiency
  2. Healthcare occupations
  3. Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) occupations
  4. Trade occupations
  5. Transport occupations
  6. Agriculture and agri-food occupations

In a report from IRCC as shared by the Globe and Mail, IRCC will be prioritizing recruiting applicants with experience in the STEM professions. Between 28 per cent and 31 per cent of invitations that are issued through Express Entry this year are expected to go to people with recent experience in certain STEM jobs which includes software developers and data scientists. Presently, there has only been one round of STEM invites that went to 500 applicants.

The target range for candidates with French proficiency is 11 per cent to 15 percent.

The target for specific occupations within health care is nine percent to 12 percent.

The target for Trades is three to four percent.

The target for Transportation and Agriculture is one to two per cent each.
