The targeted draws were for healthcare, workers in childcare and other priority occupations. From the Skilled Worker, and International Graduate streams, around 55 candidates were selected. The minimum score requirement remained the same (60) for each targeted round.

  • From the healthcare occupations, 15 candidates received nominations. 
  • And, less than 5 invitations were issued to candidates from the Other Priority Occupations. 

The draws conducted so far by the provincial government of British Columbia have issued invitations to some particular occupations. Those occupations have Tech, Healthcare, Childcare, and Other Priority Occupations (31103, 32104), with comparatively less focus on the Other Priority Occupations. 

The Canadian province is aiming to increase the number of skilled workers intake in certain industries so that their growth is not hindered by labor shortage. This means more opportunities for those looking to get hired.
