Occupation ceiling

Occupation ceiling means selection of skilled migration from any occupation group. Limited candidates from the total number of Expression of Interests are selected. If the selection reaches the occupation limit, no invitations for that occupation are sent.

In such a case, invitations are issued to the people from other occupation groups in spite of the fact that their score is low on the calculator.

Why occupation ceiling is introduced?

Occupation ceiling has been launched to make sure that biggest percentage of skilled migration program does not depend on limited number of occupations. The ceiling has been introduced to limit the number of invites after an occupation reaches its limit.
