ESDC updated tech occupations valid for Global Talent Stream

On July 5, 2019, Canadian authorities have updated the list of occupations eligible under the Global Talent Stream (GTS) to ensure it continues to reflect the Canadian labour market and the needs of innovative companies. Computer network technicians (NOC 2281) have been added to the list, while Engineering managers (NOC 0211), architecture and science managers (NOC 0212) have been removed from the list. Applications submitted for occupations that have been removed from the list will be accepted by ESDC until August 4, 2019. Any submission received after this date under category B of the Global Talent Stream will not be processed. Canada admitted 24,000 foreigners via GTS in the last two years. This stream became permanent in March 2019. The processing time for the GTS applications is two weeks.
