The Canadian government is forging ahead with a new immigration system that will offer "express entry" to qualified immigrants starting in 2015 as a way to help fill open jobs for which there are no available Canadian workers.
Express Entry, formerly known as Expression of Interest, will be "a swifter path to Canada that will select immigrants based on the skills and attributes that Canada needs based on those identified by government but also by employers," said Immigration Minister Chris Alexander during a news conference in Richmond Hill, Ont., on Tuesday.
While the change in the name of the program was quietly announced in a news release two weeks ago, the government has been remodelling Canada's immigration system for the last 18 months or so.
Finding 'a match'
Under Canada's new immigration system, which would come into effect on Jan. 1, 2015, prospective immigrants would apply to express their interest in coming to Canada. In doing so, they would answer a series of questions about their professional skills, their education, languages spoken, etc.
Those applicants would then see their skills matched with labour needs identified by the provinces and territories, as well as employers.
While the subject of skills shortages has been hotly debated, Alexander maintained, "there are many parts of the country that have acute skills shortages, there are many sectors that have acute skills shortages."
In those instances where "a match" has been identified, Express Entry could be offered to anyone who has put in an application through one of the following four programs:
- Federal skilled workers.
- Federal skilled trades.
- Canadian experience class.
- Business class.
Alexander said prospective immigrants who apply through the Provincial Nominee Program could also benefit from the system but only if the province and territory in question has brought their program under the federal one.
"Provinces and territories will take their own decisions. We're in close touch with them. We have their support for the Express Entry system, they're very excited about it. And those that choose to come in early will benefit greatly," Alexander said.
Having a valid job offer, or a provincial or territorial nomination would guarantee that Express Entry candidates receive an invitation to apply for permanent residence.
Under the new program:
- Canada will be able to select "the best candidates" who are most likely to achieve success in Canada, "rather than the first person in line."
- An improved Job Bank will make it easier to find matches between Canadian employers and Express Entry candidates.
- The government will invest $14 million over two years and $4.7 million per year ongoing to ensuring the successful implementation of Express Entry.
- Qualified applicants can expect faster processing times of six months or less when invited to come to Canada, down from a wait of up to two years.
