In June, 381 invitations were issued, mainly to Licensed Practical Nurses (NOC 3233), but also under five other health-related National Occupational Classification codes (see below).

A further draw in September saw 22 invitations issued, with just under half of them going to Software Developers (NOC 2173).

An October draw, featuring 260 invites, also majored in Software Developers but also featured nine other technology occupations.
