First-ever Category-based Express Entry Draw for 10 Transport Occupations

Hon. Marc Miller, Canada’s Minister for Immigration, announced IRCC’s plan to hold the new Express Entry draw for transportation workers targeting ten transportation occupations this week.

The first-ever transportation category-based Express Entry draw will help Canada attract aircraft assembly workers, pilots, and commercial truck drivers to meet labor shortages in the transportation industry. 

The new Express Entry draw follows Canada’s immigration strategy to conduct category-based Express Entry draws. The CRS score range for the transportation category-based draw may be between 350 and 400, similar to the category-based Express Entry draws for trades occupations.

The Express Entry draw will target ten transportation occupations as per 2021 NOC codes:

93200- Aircraft assemblers and aircraft assembly inspectors

70020- Managers in transportation

73300- Transport truck drivers

72403- Railway carmen and women 

72404- Aircraft mechanics and aircraft inspectors

72600- Air pilots, flight engineers, and flight instructors

72601- Air traffic controllers and related occupations

72602- Deck officers, water transport

72603- Engineer officers, water transport

72604- Railway traffic controllers and marine traffic regulators

During each invitation round, the points-based Express Entry application management system selects top-ranking profiles from the Express Entry pool. Each candidate in the pool receives CRS scores according to age, education, skilled experience, adaptability, and language proficiency. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada invites the top-scoring candidates to apply for permanent residency.
