What is a Category-Based Express Entry?

In category-based rounds of invitations, we select candidates from the Express Entry pool who meet the eligibility requirements for a particular category defined by the Minister.

These categories are established to fulfill specific economic objectives. Invitations to apply for permanent residence are extended to candidates based on criteria such as their proficiency in a specific official language, work experience in a designated occupation, and level of education.

Category-based rounds complement general and program-specific rounds by targeting high-ranking candidates who possess the skills and qualifications necessary to contribute to our specific economic goals. These are the six broad categories eligible for Targeted Express Entry in 2023.

  • French-language proficiency
  • Healthcare occupations
  • Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) occupations
  • Trade occupations
  • Transport occupations
  • Agriculture and agri-food occupations
