Category-based rounds of invitations in the Express Entry system allow the Canadian government to target specific economic goals.
Eligible candidates who meet criteria such as language proficiency, work experience, and education are invited to apply for permanent residence. Categories are chosen based on labor market information, projections, and input from partners.
In 2023, the categories include:
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) occupations
Agriculture and agri-food occupations
