Information and Communications Technology published a report last year stating that Canada needs about 182,000 new IT workers by 2019. Fortunately, the Canada Express Entry has been a great magnetic element in attracting a huge number of IT professionals over the past year and helped the country overcome the labor shortage to an extent.
Provinces of Canada have recognized their need for skilled IT workers and have used their Express Entry-aligned provincial Nominee Programs streams specifically to select IT talent. The statistics analyzed after each PNP opening makes it evident enough that an increased number of candidates (majorly of the IT sector) who have strong human capital factors and with no job offer were selected & nominated for Canada PR. Additionally, the recently launched Global Talent Stream which was started with an aim to aid innovative companies hire talent at a faster pace seems to a good contribution in this regard.
Here’s a brief report on the provinces which are explicitly looking for IT workers, through the Express Entry System:
Furthermore, the year-end 2016 report of IRCC clearly reflects that among the total number of candidates who received ITA last year, majority of them represented the IT sector (14% of total invited candidates).

This makes candidates with best IT skills and eligibility factors eligible for highest chance & quick PR visa success- even without the need of a job offer.
