plans of Canada
Chris Alexander, Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister has announced the newly introduced measures in the economic immigration programs. These measures have been planned for the successful launch of Express Entry program in 2015.

 According to the new measures, Citizenship and Immigration Canada would be accepting applications under the newly introduced caps for FSWP known as Federal Skilled Worker Program, FSTP known as Federal Skilled Trades Program and CEC known as the Canadian Experience Class beginning from 01st May, 2014.

These measures taken up by the CIC would ensure that the number of skilled workers, who are willing to permanently settle in Canada, are supplied at a steady rate and provide help to enhance additional workforce to the existing workforce in the areas where there is a shortage of the skills.

A new cap of 25, 000 applications has been introduced under the FSW program. 26 new occupations have been added to the existing 24 eligible occupations, accounting for a total of 50 occupations under this program. These occupations are intended to meet the needs of the labor market.

Canada requires skilled trades people.  In order to support this need, a new cap of 5,000 applications has been introduced under the Federal Skilled Trades Program. 90 skilled trades chosen under this program are qualified for consideration, while the sub-caps continue.

Effective 01st May, 2014, The Canadian Experience Class (CEC) new cap has been set at 8,000 applications.

For the successful execution of Express Entry, Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2014 would invest $4.7 million for each year continuously and $14 million in the coming two years.
