The demand for trade jobs in Canada is still high because these roles are important in many industries across the country. Skilled workers like Electricians, Plumbers, and Carpenters are needed to build homes, buildings, and infrastructure. The increasing population and ongoing construction projects keep the need for these trades steady.

On May 31, Sean Fraser announced that IRCC has finalised six new categories for draws to be conducted under the Express Entry Program. In addition to Trade Occupations, the new categories are Healthcare Occupations, STEM Occupations, French-Language Proficiency, Transport Occupations, and Agriculture & Agri-Food Occupations.

The category-based selection draws allow for the selection of candidates with the most in-demand skills to be chosen to receive an invitation to apply for Canada PR.
