Top 10 In Demand Technology Careers in Canada.

by Sahra Togone

As the world becomes increasingly globalized, many countries are competing to attract and retain skilled workers to grow local economies. Since implementing a points-based system in the 1960s, the government of Canada has become a leader in transforming immigration. In 2015, the government introduced the Express Entry application process, which is a fast-track system designed to manage skilled immigrants settle in Canada.
In alignment with the federal system, several provinces across Canada have prioritized specific occupations for express entry through provincial nominee programs. The Ontario Express Entry: Human Capital Priorities stream has recently launched a list of National Occupational Classification (NOC) Codes for targeted occupations in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector. Like many provinces across Canada, Ontario is currently facing a human capital shortage in the tech sector, with thousands of local graduates failing to meet the demands of the growing economy.
