Demand of Healthcare Workers 

The healthcare industry of Canada is in deep need of recruiting more workers. Statistics Canada shows a rather shocking number of job vacancies open in the healthcare sector, and this means that communities across the country are in need of more healthcare professionals. Around 144,500, which is almost 17.7% of all vacant job positions, are available in the healthcare industry. 

As a way to battle this growing issue, Canada is launching different ways to invite more healthcare professionals in the country and reduce the labor gap experienced. We have also seen that different provinces of Canada are trying to do the same. Take British Columbia for example, most of the times when it issues invitations, you would find the healthcare occupations mentioned either in the targeted or general category of draw. 

Similarly, not long ago, Alberta launched the Dedicated Healthcare Pathway so it could make a separate immigration pathway reserved for healthcare professionals.
