Let’s begin with this edition of FAQs on Canadian immigration by discussing the three most relevant topics. 

Q1. Is it true that Canada still has one million job vacancies? 

The monthly payroll employment, earnings, hours, and job vacancy report for May 2022 indicates Canada still has over one million job vacancies. 

If this is read along with Canada’s plan for increasing immigration, it seems that Canadian businesses are now dependent heavily on skilled immigrants to fulfill increasing job vacancies across industries.

The report found a sharp increase in the job vacancy rate in the health care and social services sectors to upto 143,000 vacancies or 6.1%.

Major immigrant-friendly provinces like Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, British Columbia, Newfoundland, and Labrador all reported increased employment in the retail trade sector. 

Almost all provinces showed the highest number of vacancies in accommodation and food services. Tech occupations such as computer systems design and related services under the professional, scientific, and technical services sector also showed growth in every province. 


However, as Canada continues to experience high job vacancies, the employment rate has decreased in most sectors for the first time since May 2021.

Q2. Is the future of Canadian immigration dominated by Provincial Nominee Programs or Express Entry programs? 

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is forced to innovate its approach of targeting skilled economic immigrants for permanent residency since March 2020. 

The current immigration plan allows for over 400,000 new immigrants annually till 2024. Over 60% of the target will be met through economic-class and family-class immigration programs. 

Until recently, IRCC targeted candidates with prior provincial nominations or Canadian work experience to issue invitations to apply for Canadian permanent residency. 

Even after the resumption of all-program Express Entry draws after the gap of 18 months, the share of candidates with prior provincial nominations was about 45% of the total invited candidates, followed by 36% of candidates with at least one year of work experience in Canada. 

And the rest were issued to candidates with no Canadian experience and belonging to Federal Skilled Worker Program. 

Additionally, The Forum of Ministers Responsible (FMRI) for Immigration met in Saint John, New Brunswick on July 28. It discussed increasing Canada’s Immigration Levels Plan alongside agreeing on a multi-year PNP levels plan. 

Presently, PNP is targeting 80,000 intakes in 2022 and would increase to 90,000 intakes next year.  

The final verdict is that while PNPs are taking center stage in targeting foreign immigrants in Canada, Express Entry programs still remain the most preferred pathway for permanent residency.
