Canada is all set to hold its first-ever Express Entry draw for newcomers with transportation work experience this week.
On September 18, 2022, the Honourable Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Marc Miller announced that the first round of invitations for transport occupations through category-based selection in Express Entry will occur this week. This upcoming Express Entry draw will focus on candidates with experience in the transport sector - including commercial truck drivers, pilots, and aircraft assembly workers.
On May 31, IRCC finalized six new selection categories for Express Entry draws. The categories were chosen after considering labor market projections and consulting with various Partners, Stakeholders, and Provincial and Territorial governments. IRCC has so far conducted seven draws under the newly launched category-based selection for Express Entry draws.
Canada will hold its first Express Entry draw in more than one month. The previous Express Entry draw was held on August 15.
