If the recent upset victory for Donald Trump has you fantasizing about moving to Canada, you may be in luck — Canada is, in fact, looking for a few skilled men and women (actually, thousands of them).

As Business Insider's Chris Weller previously reported, Canada's fast-track system for immigration called Express Entry is perhaps the quickest way for skilled workers to transition into a role in the country. The Canadian government has committed to an application processing time of six months for most cases.

All applicants for Express Entry are scored based on factors including their skills, work experience, language ability, and education, and then they're ranked with other applicants. Those at the top of the rankings are then invited to become permanent residents.

Following the program's launch in 2015, the Canadian government reports that more than 31,000 invitations to apply for permanent residence have been issued to a diverse range of highly skilled immigrants.

According to the Canadian government, these are the occupations most frequently invited to apply for permanent residency as of January 3, 2016:
