Many Express Entry candidates immigrate through tech occupations

From 2016 to 2020 Express Entry candidates in certain tech occupations have received the highest number of invitations to apply (ITA).

The following three occupations in the tech sector were the most popular ones among the applicants: software engineers and designers (NOC 2173);

information systems analysts and consultants (NOC 2171);

and computer programmers and interactive media developers (NOC 2174).

There was significant variation in terms of gender balance since the majority of ITAs were issued to men.

Out of 6,665 invitations issued, male software engineers and designers received 5,000 ITAs.
