New Express Entry System to fast track visa applications
In January 2015, the Canadian Government in partnership with the provincial and territorial governments will launch the new Express Entry visa programme. This new electronic application management system will apply to the four existing visa programmes:
The Federal Skilled Worker Program
Federal Skilled Trades Program
Canadian Experience Class
Part of the Provincial Nominee Program
Through Express Entry, visa applicants who meet the criteria for one of the federal immigration programs will be placed in a pool from which prospective employers may consider applicants who meet their needs where they can’t be fulfilled by a Canadian. The Government’s new and improved Job Bank will help to facilitate matches.
Express Entry candidates who receive a qualifying job offer from either an employer or a nomination under the Provincial Nominee Program will be invited to apply for permanent residence. More announcements will be made in November.
This is a fantastic opportunity for those who are thinking about starting a new life in Canada. If you would like more information, please call us or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
