IRCC proposed new categories for targeted Express Entry draws

On January 12, 2023, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) conducted public consultations with stakeholders to adjust the Express Entry application management system in response to Canada’s economic needs and labour shortages. To accomplish this goal, the department has crafted Express Entry categories that prioritize specific credentials such as educational background, work experience and understanding of official languages over the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. IRCC is actively seeking public input regarding selection priorities for immigration that could alleviate chronic economic and labour force shortages. All contributions must be submitted by January 16, 2023, to be considered.
