In an important development, the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry, has announced the launch of the first-ever STEM round for category-based selection in the Express Entry Invitation system. This round, scheduled for the week of July 5th, will prioritize the invitation of candidates with expertise in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). It includes professionals such as data scientists, software developers and programmers, mathematicians, statisticians and actuaries, as well as electrical and electronic engineers.
This initiative reflects Canada’s commitment to addressing the growing demand for STEM talent and filling key positions that contribute to the country’s economic growth and technological advancement. By attracting top global talent, Canada aims to solidify its position as a leader in research, development, and innovation.
The announcement aligns with the Canadian government’s efforts to retain and recruit exceptional candidates in order to meet the labour challenges faced in the STEM workforce. It builds upon the recent launch of the Tech Talent Attraction Strategy, which aims to position Canada as an attractive destination for highly skilled individuals.
The introduction of category-based selection in the Express Entry Invitation system marks a significant milestone. This approach enables the selection of candidates based on specific work experience or French language ability, further strengthening Francophone immigration. It also addresses labour needs that support identified economic goals, ensuring a well-rounded and diverse workforce.
The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, expressed enthusiasm about the STEM category-based selection round, highlighting the crucial role it plays in attracting top talent from around the world. He emphasized the importance of recruiting skilled workers with STEM experience to maintain Canada’s position at the forefront of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Category-based selection rounds will continue throughout the year alongside the general express entry invitation rounds, demonstrating the ongoing commitment to selecting candidates based on specific skills and qualifications. Further details about these rounds will be announced in the coming weeks.
This announcement brings new opportunities for skilled professionals in STEM fields to pursue permanent residence in Canada and contribute to its thriving innovation ecosystem.
