Well, here is good news for you. Top Canadian cities have added a huge number of tech jobs in the last five years.
Canadian city Toronto(Ontario province) has alone added more than 80,000 IT jobs in the past five years. It ranks among top 3 cities in both the United States and Canada for tech workers as per CBRE’s Scoring Tech Talent Report.
As per Scoring Tech Talent Report, Toronto’s pool of tech talent developed at the fastest pace of all 50 markets measured, adding 80,100 IT jobs in the past five years, with a 54 percent increase. Other Canadian cities, such as Vancouver, Montreal, and Ottawa- the capital city of Canada also performed well. Vancouver went up 13 spots to 12th place, while, Montreal came in at 13 and Canada’s national capital, i.e. Ottawa, grabbed the 19th position overall.
Canada’s federal and provincial nominee programs (PNPs) are inviting the significant number of techies through their periodic invitation rounds or draws.

Ontario province of Canada is launching its separate Tech draws to invite the express entry candidates with work experience in the targeted IT Occupations. The province of Ontario has invited 3,396 candidates with work experience in IT occupations through its two major tech draws this year. The latest OINP –Tech draw opened on August 1, 2019, to invite 1,773 IT professionals from an express entry pool of candidates.
The key IT occupations, i.e. computer programmers and interactive media developers were recently added to the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program list of in-demand occupations. Saskatchewan invites the candidates with work experience in any of the occupations under its two subcategories, i.e. Occupation in Demand and Express entry subcategory.
The MPNP (Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program) recently reduced its language requirements for computer network technicians from a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 7 to 5, making an invitation to apply for a provincial nomination that much easier to obtain for the IT professionals.
The BCPNP (British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program) conducts the Tech Pilot draws or weekly invitation rounds for tech workers with an eligible job offer from a B.C. employer in one of 29 tech-related occupations.
