Why Additional Occupations to Global Talent Stream?
Canada Introduces 5 Additional Engineering Occupations to its Global Talent Hunt: Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) (GTS) expanded the number of jobs available under the Global Talent Stream on December 22.
Among other things, the Global Talent Stream (GTS) and the issuance of Labour Market Internal Assessments (LMIAs) are two of the immigration procedures that are under the supervision of the federal agency Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
The Global Talent Stream (GTS) is a fast-tracked work visa program that makes it easier for Canada’s technology sector to hire skilled foreign workers.
The GTS allows businesses to apply for and get work permits for foreign skilled workers in one of 17 high-demand occupations.
5 Additional Engineering Occupations
Five more engineering opportunities have been added, bringing the total number of qualifying jobs from 12 to 17. This includes:
- Electrical and Electronics Engineers (National Occupational Classification NOC Code 21310).
- Civil Engineers (National Occupational Classification NOC Code 21300).
- Mining Engineers (National Occupational Classification NOC Code 21330).
- Aerospace Engineers (National Occupational Classification NOC Code 21390).
- Computer Engineers (National Occupational Classification NOC Code 21311).
The number of GTS-eligible jobs adapts to meet the needs of the Canadian labor market, which is why it has been widened. These five new jobs were made because there are so few workers in the country right now.
Nigerian engineering professionals, among others, can now apply for a direct work permit from their home countries, thanks to the Canadian government.
Canada Labour Market Additions
The increase in immigration of people with specific skill sets this year has helped to meet Canada’s labor market demands. These include, but are not limited to:
- Launching the New Brunswick Critical Worker Pilot (NBCWP), a collaborative effort between the province and six enterprises to meet the province’s workforce demands.
- The elimination of roadblocks for Express Entry medical residency applicants as a result of huge requirements for healthcare professionals
- With the passing of the C-19 bill into law, the immigration minister is now able to divide the Express Entry pool into subsets (depending on policy needs, such as in-demand positions) and send out invitations to apply (ITAs) to those who meet the requirements of those subsets. This means that more sectors will be on Express Entry’s scope in 2023.
Given the country’s persistently high labor deficits and rising senior citizen population, Canada will likely continue to handle its economic demands in a much more targeted manner. Consequently, the government is relying on immigration to satisfy its growing demand for labor.
