Thirteen construction-related occupations have been added to the Canterbury Skill Shortage List.

If an occupation is on the Canterbury list, employers can hire migrants more quickly. Suitable applicants who meet the requirements of the occupations on the list and who have a job offer in Canterbury may be granted a temporary work visa without a check needing to be done on whether there are skilled New Zealanders available.
