IRCC updates Eligible Trade Occupations for Express Entry Certificate of Qualification

Dear Future neighbour,

Did you know you could get 50 extra CRS points by getting a Certificate of Qualification in a Canadian province?

On Friday, September 8, 2023, IRCC officially updated the list of trade occupations eligible for Express Entry certificates of qualification.

The only thing needed is to get a certificate of qualification for one of the 101 occupations listed below; previous work experience in any of the occupations is not a necessity.

If you are currently residing in Canada with a valid Express Entry profile or are planning on creating one, you can enrol in one of these skilled trades programs. Once you have completed training in one of these trades, you can then write an examination to get a certificate of qualification from one of the Canadian provinces.
