Targeted Express Entry Draw for 35 Eligibile Healthcare Occupations

Healthcare professions are prominently featured on Canada’s Targeted Express Entry Occupation List, comprising a total of 35 occupations. The country is actively seeking skilled individuals, including dentists, registered nurses, psychologists, and physiotherapists, to address the pressing shortage of healthcare workers. This scarcity is a result of Canada’s declining birth rate and aging population, emphasizing the urgent need for skilled immigrants to fill these crucial roles.
