IRCC announces first-ever category-based selection for skilled newcomers in transportation occupations

On September 18, 2023, the Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), announced the first category-based lottery under the Express Entry system for newcomers with work experience in transportation occupations. This initiative focuses on attracting skilled workers in the transportation sector, including truck drivers, pilots and aircraft assemblers. The goal is to address labour shortages and support economic objectives by inviting candidates with specific work experience or French language skills to apply for permanent residence. Canada’s Express Entry system provides a streamlined route for skilled workers in critical sectors. By prioritizing the invitation of skilled newcomers in transportation occupations, Canada aims to meet the demand for talent and fill key positions that contribute to economic growth.
