IRCC will implement the new TEER system this week
On November 16, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will update the National Occupation Classification (NOC) to include the Training, Education, Experience, and Responsibilities (TEER) system. The NOC is revised every ten years to keep up with the changing Canadian labour market. This newest revision provides a new framework for classifying occupations by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) and Statistics Canada. The only impact this change will have, is administrative, as there will be no changes to advertising or delivery of the immigration programs.

Ottawa will start holding targeted Express Entry draws in 2023
To ease impending labour shortages, Canada will begin hosting targeted Express Entry draws specifically for skilled workers starting next year. Immigration Minister Sean Fraser explained that targeted draws would allow the government to select workers by the sector and the location they intend to live in Canada. Immigration Minister also stated his intention to work with provinces to simplify the process of foreign credential recognition for doctors and nurses. This way, healthcare workers will be more efficiently employed under a specific skilled worker program targeting areas where demand is high.

Ontario needs more healthcare professionals and tech workers
Comparing this year to the start of 2021, Ontario has a higher demand for healthcare workers and professional and technical services. According to TD Economics’ latest forecast, real GDP growth in Ontario will decrease from 2.9 percent to 0.7 percent next year and only improve slightly by 2024 with 1 percent growth. Economists suppose as the economy gradually slows down, the unemployment rate in Ontario is slowly predicted to increase (from 5.6% over the next two years to 6.3% by 2023 and 6.7% by 2024).

Immigration to Newfoundland and Labrador is flourishing
The Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador is seeing an influx of immigrants this year who are coming to work in the province through economic immigration programs. This is ahead of next year’s anticipated increase in the rate of economic growth. So far this year, Newfoundland and Labrador has been taking in immigrants at almost three times the rate as seven years ago. In 2015, 1,120 new permanent residents made the province their home. If current trends continue, we can expect 3,015 new arrivals by the end of 2022.
