If you’re hoping to immigrate in 2020, Canada is likely to be near the top of your list. Canada is welcoming to all newcomers and is on the lookout for a wide variety of skills, but here are the top 5 skills in demand in Canada for this year.

At Frontier, we’ve helped people from all walks of life to relocate to Canada. Whether you have an existing career, plan to study in Canada or re-join family we are always here to help. There are some skills our growing population particularly needs, however, and these can help to fast-track your immigration.

  1. Registered Nurses

Our demand for nurses and other healthcare workers such as opticians continues to grow. Our population now has an average life expectancy of over 80, and due to the success of Canada’s immigration program in recent years, our population is expanding. The combination of the two means that our healthcare sector still needs more healthcare professionals to keep our top-rate health service in tiptop condition.

  1. Business Management Consultant

Canada is a land of entrepreneurs and career-savvy workers. The demand for Business Management Consultants is high and not showing any signs of slowing. A thriving population means more new businesses and more business growth and planning.

  1. College or vocational instructor

It’s not just our businesses who are interested in maximising their potential. Canada is a favourite spot for immigration for study, and those already living in Canada are keen to study. Whether you can teach traditional academic subjects or something vocational, your skills will be in high demand as you pass on your knowledge to a new generation.

  1. Truck Driver

It may not sound as glamorous as some of the other careers on the list, but that just makes it accessible to a wider pool of people. Our beautiful country spans 9,984,670 sq. km and is the world’s second-largest country by area. When you have that much land, truck drivers are in high demand to move goods from coast to coast.

  1. Welder

The Canadian construction industry is booming, and as such, we just can’t get enough welders. Competition for the best posts is fierce so your welding skills will directly affect your choices, but welders of all levels are in great demand and will be for years to come.
