Canada – Update to Global Talent Occupations List

Effect July 2019, the Global Talent Occupations List for Category B of the Global Talent Stream was updated to reflect Canada’s labor market shortage. Both Engineering Manager (NOC 0211) and Architecture and Science Managers (NOC 0212) have been removed from the list while Computer Network Technician (NOC 2281) has been added. Applications for NOC 0211 and NOC 0212 will still be accepted by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) until August 4, 2019.

Certain occupations also include wage floors, which have also been updated. These occupations must offer the hourly wage rate at minimum.

Employers who may be affected are encouraged to contact an immigration specialist for case-specific advice.
