The ACT Critical Skills List identifies the occupations currently in demand in Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). The ACT Government updated its Critical Skills List on 24 June 2022. The update adds 95 new occupations to the List reflecting the genuine shortage of skilled workers in the national capital. The list has a minor update in July.
When updating the List, the ACT Government reviewed a variety of metrics including job openings, employment levels, expected employment growth and retirement by occupation, and feedback from industry and stakeholders. There are real shortages and real jobs in these areas.
This List will not change over the next 12 months.
If your occupation is on the List you may be able to migrate directly to Canberra from your home country. We encourage you to review the List, and if your occupation is there, to contact us immediately.
To see all occupations on the List scroll down using the arrows in the top left corner of the chart.
