Healthcare Occupations

Category-based rounds of invitations

For category-based rounds of invitations, the Minister establishes a category to meet a specific economic goal. We then invite top-ranking candidates in the pool who are eligible for this category.
  • French-language proficiency
  • Healthcare occupations
  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) occupations
  • Trade occupations
  • Transport occupations
  • Agriculture and agri-food occupations
Category-based rounds add to general and program-specific rounds by inviting top-ranking candidates who can help us meet specific economic goals.
