Competitiveness among many countries attracts the best talents; triggers economic growth and opportunities for workers and host countries.
“Our government is transforming our immigration system to ensure the Canadian economy remains strong and we are continuing to fuel our future growth and prosperity. With the launch of Express Entry in 2015, employers will be able to select the skilled immigrants they need to fill available jobs when they cannot find a qualified Canadian or permanent resident. The Express Entry system will help Canada meet its economic and labour market needs.” – said Chris Alexander, Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister
Express Entry a new electronic system to manage applications for permanent residence in certain economic programs; will allow Canada to actively recruit, assess and select skilled immigrants under the following federal economic immigration programs:
- the Federal Skilled Worker Program,
- the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and
- the Canadian Experience Class.
Expectations of Express Entry:
1. Potential candidates will complete an online profile where they will provide information about their skills, work experience, language ability, education, and other details. Those who meet the criteria of one of the federal economic immigration programs subject to Express Entry will be placed in a pool of candidates.
2. Candidates will receive an Invitation to apply for permanent residence if they rank among the top in the pool, based on their skills and experience. Candidates who have a valid job offer from a Canadian employer (subject to the Labour Market Impact Assessment process in place at that time) or have been nominated by a province or territory will be given high scores in the ranking system.
The Citizenship and Immigration Canada will process complete applications within six months or less. It will allow the Government of Canada to be more flexible and responsive to Canada’s changing economic conditions and priorities. (Source: www.cic.gc.ca/expressentry)
