Top 10 Occupations 2018 were Software Engineers, Information system Analysts and consultants, Computer Programmers and Interactive Media Developers, Financial Auditors and Accountants, Administrative Assistants, Professional Occupations in Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations, University Professors and Lecturers, Financial Investment Analysts, Professional Occupations in Business Management Consulting, Advertising, Marketing and Public Relation Managers. Citizens of India dominated Express Entry Invitations in 2018, receiving 46 per cent of all ITAs issued. Citizens of China were a distant second, followed by Citizens of Nigeria last year.
The IRCC data shows that 51 percent of Express Entry Candidates who received an ITA in 2018 were between the age of 20 and 29. In terms of education, 48 percent had a Master’s degree or entry to practice professional degree and another 42 per cent had a post-secondary credential of three years or longer. A majority of Candidates had no Canadian work experience, while 39 per cent had five years or more of foreign work experience.
  Many invited candidates are only admitted the following year. IRCC attributed the increase in Express Entry admissions last year to a large number of Federal High skilled Candidates who were processed in 2017 but only admitted in 2018. Additional Express Entry candidates who were processed and admitted through the PNP in 2018 also contributed to the spike, IRCC said.
