New Construction and Infrastructure Skill Shortage List

Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has announced that the Canterbury Skill Shortage List (CSSL) has been disestablished and has been replaced with a general Construction and Infrastructure Skill Shortage List (CISSL) that applies across the entire country as at 17 December.  A copy of the new CISSL is below.

The disestablishment of the CSSL has been anticipated this last quarter as the recovery is well balanced and many significant projects have now been completed.  However, the new CISSL is dominated by a number of construction-based roles in Canterbury as the recovery continues in that region, meaning that rather than disestablishing the need for a Canterbury regional skill shortage list the Canterbury demand has simply been transitioned into a generic country-wide construction and infrastructure skill shortage list that will essentially put other areas of the country on an even footing (i.e. the attraction of those particular skilled individuals to the regions concerned rather than just Canterbury).

Many of the occupations listed in the new CISSL are in short demand throughout the entire country; especially in Auckland which is under significant labour constraint to a point where the labour demand for construction and infrastructure projects required there over the next few years is slightly larger than the initial labour demand required to support the main recovery of the Canterbury region.

The disestablishment of the CSSL closes the only regional specific temporary work visa initiative; however, our view is that we are likely to see more regionalised based visa policies in the future. In our view, this is a much smarter way to apply immigration policy; a one-size-fits-all approach does not work, and we are sure that the success of the CSSL (and the learnings taken from it) can be applied in a future temporary visa programme that is more regionally orientated to attract (and retain) the specific skills required for each particular region of the country.
