Common jobs for immigrants in Canada

A list of the most common jobs that immigrants get in Canada, including specific info for Express Entry candidates.
While having a job offer is not required to immigrate to Canada, having Canadian experience—such as work or study experience—can open the doors to numerous economic-class immigration programs.
If you are looking for a job in Canada that could help you on your pathway to permanent residency, it’s important to remember that your occupation matters when it comes time to decide on a program.
The Canadian government uses the National Occupation Classification (NOC) system in order to classify occupations. Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) updated its systems to the latest version, NOC 2021, this past November.
The current NOC is broken up into six Training, Education, Experience, and Responsibilities (TEER) categories. For some of the most popular economic-class immigration programs to Canada, you need to be working in a “skilled” occupation which falls under TEER categories 0, 1, 2, or 3.
IRCC has recently released 2022 immigration data, which provide—among other stats—the occupations where most immigrants intended to work last year.
IRCC also recently released its 2021 Express Entry Report. Express Entry is one of the main pathways to Canadian immigration.
Using two official IRCC data sources, we came up with some of the most common occupations of new immigrants, and those who were invited to apply for immigration through Express Entry.
