New Targeted Express Entry Draws: List Of Eligible NOC Codes for 2

Immigration Minister Sean Fraser announced full list of occupations eligible for new targeted Express Entry draws for 2023.

To be eligible for one of the targeted Express Entry draws, candidates must have at least 6 months of continuous work experience (in Canada or abroad) during the last 3 years, in any of the occupations listed below.

These targeted occupations are much in line with expectations posted by INC – Immigration News Canada.

Do I just need 6 months of experience to be eligible for the new Express Entry targeted draws?

No, you must have at least one year (30 x 52 weeks = 1560 hours) of work experience in TEER 0, 1, 2, or 3 occupations to be eligible for any Express Entry program.
