Healthcare Occupations (2023-1) Round of Invitations


The Government of Canada is committed to a diverse and inclusive society, and that includes a robust immigration system. The Category based selection program is one of the primary ways that individuals from around the world can make their way to Canada and contribute to our economy and society. The Minister of Citizenship and Immigration has just announced the latest round of Category Based selection, targeting healthcare occupations.

The Category Based system is designed to meet specific economic goals. It invites top-ranking candidates who can contribute to Canada’s economic success. Candidates are ranked based on their skills, experience, language proficiency, and other factors. The highest-ranking candidates are then invited to apply for permanent residence.

Latest Round of Invitations

In this latest round, which is titled Healthcare Occupations (2023-1), 500 invitations have been issued. The round took place on June 28, 2023. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of the lowest-ranked candidate invited was 476.

Invitation Details

500 Candidates were invited to apply in this round. If more than one candidate had the lowest score, the cut-off was based on the date and time they submitted their profiles. The tie-breaking rule was November 12, 2022, at 12:47:27 UTC.


This category-based round of invitations helps to meet specific economic goals by inviting top-ranking candidates in the healthcare field. This is a testament to the importance of healthcare professionals in Canadian society, especially in light of recent global events.


The Category Based system is a competitive and fast-paced program. However, it also presents a fantastic opportunity for healthcare professionals to immigrate to Canada and contribute to the country’s economic and social fabric. If you’re a healthcare professional interested in moving to Canada, now is a great time to explore the Category Based system.
