New Rise In Immigration:
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced changes in its Express Entry system on May 31. This category-based selection will address the labour shortage and support economic growth by attracting professionals who have great work experience or are fluent in French.
Focus On The Transport Sector:
The minister of IRCC, Marc Miller, has declared the initial invitation round for the transport sector. The goal is to target workers such as:
- Commercial truck drivers
- Aircraft assembly workers
This is being done so they can get the skilled talent in the transport sector that is desperately required.
Why The Transport Sector?
The economy of Canada is fast-growing, and this pinpoints the need to improve transport and infrastructure. The secure transportation of goods and passengers is crucial, and by having newly skilled talent, Canada aims to address the labour shortage and ensure more success in this industry.
A Collaborative Decision:
The decision to keep specific job categories was made following consultation with provincial and territorial partners, stakeholders and the public. Also, a deep review of the market need for labour was done to ensure that they targeted the right sector.
This innovative approach by Canada showcases its promise to grow. If you are a skilled professional in the transport industry, then it’s your time to welcome this opportunity.
