    Each of the top 100 best Canadian jobs is ranked and includes details about its median salary, growth in salary/wages during a five-year period, increase of new jobs in Canada in the past five years, and the outlook for the occupation.

    Since there is an ongoing shortage of qualified Canadian workers for several of the top jobs in Canada, many of the high-demand occupations are eligible for Express Entry immigration to Canada, which was created to facilitate the Canadian visa application process for eligible skilled foreign workers and their family members.

     

    In addition to meeting the education and work experience requirements for an eligible occupation, other criteria (e.g., English or French language skills, health, character, etc.) must be satisfied before a Canadian visa is granted.
