The Government of Canada is implementing a category-based selection system within its Express Entry program to address labour shortages and promote economic growth. This new system aims to attract skilled workers with specific skills, training, or language abilities that are in high demand in the country. The initial focus of category-based selection will be on candidates who possess strong French language proficiency or work experience in sectors such as healthcare, STEM professions, trades, transportation, and agriculture. For marine, express entry is open to deck officers and marine engineers. This approach aligns with Canada’s commitment to welcoming individuals who can contribute to the country’s future and adapt to its changing economic and labour market needs.
