Canada’s Express Entry system has been revamped to offer an efficient and targeted route for individuals specializing in critical fields. With a strategic focus on skilled newcomers in trades, Canada is taking steps to address talent shortages, fulfill essential roles, and drive economic growth.

On August 1, Canada revealed that the first-ever trades-based selection round will commence this week. This dedicated emphasis on candidates with trades expertise, including skills in carpentry, plumbing, and welding, will support Canada’s construction sector in attracting the skilled workforce it requires across the nation.

This announcement marks a pivotal moment in Canada’s immigration approach, aligning it with the growing demand for trades expertise across the nation.
