Express Entry One Year report – 2015
In 2015, under Express Entry, more than 31,000 invitations to apply for permanent residence have been issued and out of those, 10,000 individuals have already landed in Canada as permanent residents,” said the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada review.
“Key findings were that professors found a place in the top 10 occupations list and that many international students fare well in Express Entry.”
2,356 applicants invited to immigrate last year were “food service supervisors,” followed by 2,295 cooks. Together the two occupations accounted for 16 percent of those who became permanent residents in Canada.
Information systems analysts, software engineers, computer programmers and interactive media developers, university professors and lecturers, retail sales supervisors, graphic designers and illustrators, financial auditors and accountants, and financial investment analysts rounded up the top ten.
