Canada Occupation Demand list

National Occupation List (NOC)

Looking forward to moving to Canada, you must fall in the Occupation demand list given by CIC Canada.  The latest Express Entry Program started by the Government of Canada has opened the doors for skilled workers and made employment in Canada much more workable. Express Entry Program asks the candidate for valid documentation of personal details such as Age, Education, Adaptability and Work it conducts Experience and analysis based on Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) by which points are allocated to the candidate. The scoring of the adequate number of points can generate possibilities of PR Status in Canada, which helps provide the right to live in any province and helps in attaining job opportunities based on the capabilities of the individual.

When Canada lets in a new Applicant without a valid job offer letter for full-time employment in Canada, it requires them to fulfill certain rules if they are to be allowed entry. The first among these is that their particular occupation must be in-high demand wherever they are going. Thus, it ensures that they should be able to find a job in Canada. To ensure that immigrants can sustain themselves and do not engage in disguised employment, the IRCC requires all persons moving to Canada through the Occupation demand list category of the Express Entry program should have enough funds to support themselves and their loved ones. In fact, it requires that you also have enough funds to support those members of your family who are not immigrating with you to Canada.

Jobs Highly in-Demand in Canada 2020

The following is a list of in-Demand jobs or occupations in Canada. These have been categorised into 3 sub-categories as per the NOC or National Occupations Classifications list – Categories O, A and B. Out of these, Category O or management jobs have the greatest demand in Canada right now. So, if you have a Master’s degree in Business Administration and have at last 1 year of working experience, you can apply for immigration to Canada through the OID stream and may just land yourself the job of a lifetime!  If your particular profession or vocation falls into any of these categories, then you have a good chance of moving to Canada without a job offer.
