From 19th November 2016, we may see new rules in the Express Entry immigration system. However, this will not be the end of adjustment process.

A press release was issued by the department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) on November 14 in which some short term changes were outlined.

Some changes were announced last week, including: points will be given to certain job offers without a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) to workers in Canada, candidates who obtained education in Canada will also be given additional points, and candidates with a valid Invitation to Apply (ITAs) will have longer period to apply for Canada permanent residency.

According to the press release from IRCC, the latest changes are part of a series of improvements that are being planned by the government of Canada. The purpose is to make immigration system more responsive and fair. For the middle class, it will ensure long term economic growth and will take care of emerging requirements.

The Liberal government of Canada had stated previously that benefit will be given to candidates who have experience or connection in Canada.

Stay Proactive

As per the statements made by the government, changes are being made constantly to the immigration system of Canada. These changes are being made not only at the federal level but also in all the provinces as well, in their respective Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

Enhanced PNP categories changes and / or open on an ongoing basis and are aligned with the Express Entry system. Candidates, who apply for these PNP have the chance of being given 600 CRS points, as a job offer from a Canadian employer only gives 200 or 50 points.

The need for candidates to remain proactive is highlighted by the fact that Express Entry system is all set to undergo changes and the same can be expected for various PNPs.

The immigration minister of Canada has stated that the government is changing rules to attract highly skilled workers to immigrate to Canada. A better immigration system is the key to strengthen our society and economy.
