Is an Employment and Immigration Officer required to consider all five occupational categories?

Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Sklyar v. Canada (Citizenship and Immigration), 2008 FC 1226 (CanLII):

A central issue in this case was whether the Officer had in fact considered all five occupational categories. It is central because there is a positive obligation on the Officer to assess an applicant’s qualifications under all the occupational categories indicated by an applicant (Hajariwala v. Canada (Minister of Employment and Immigration), [1989] 2 F.C. 79 (F.C.T.D.)). It is evident from the Record that the Officer focused virtually all of her attention on the occupation of Economist.
