The short answer is yes!
According to Sean Fraser, Canada's Immigration Minister, the Express Entry system needs to change to meet the economic needs. He believes that IRCC should focus on bringing people who match the needs of the Canadian economy.
This means that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is planning to hold Express Entry draws based on the goals and needs of the labour market.
Occupation, language, or educational attainment will be examples of the criteria based on which, candidates will be invited. This helps IRCC to tailor invitations to meet in-demand qualifications.
IRCC is preparing for technical implementation in early 2023.
