Why the Canadian Immigration  system is changing: Latest Express entry 2023 changes

The foremost reason to bring changes in the express entry system is the labor shortages in the country. This is because Canada’s population is aging and the birth rate in the country is very low. Therefore, there are not enough people in the country to fulfill the labor requirements. As a result, Canada relies on immigrants to overcome labor needs and will target specific occupations in 2023.

According to Canada’s Immigration Plan 2023-2025, 500,000 new people will be welcomed into the country. And 110,00 out of 500,000 will be invited through express entry. This shows the focus of the Canadian government on the express entry system and the need of people to overcome labor shortages in the country.
