Canadas New Express Entry Procedure
Canada is going to overhaul its immigration system with the new Express Entry system for selecting immigrants from 1 January 2015.

The Express Entry system is an online process, which assigns rank to the potential candidates based on certain criteria under federal skilled worker program, Canadian experience class and skilled trades program.

Allegedly, individuals with highest rankings will receive invitation from the government to apply for the programs. The main objective of the new system is to connect Canadian employers with individuals who can plug the skill gap where qualified Canadians are not available to fill the position.

Apparently, the new system will transform the way they lure skilled immigrants and paves path for them to enter the country at a faster pace. As employers are facing difficultly to bring people to fill vacant positions, the government is reviving the old system with new Express Entry system to transform the way they process applications and to minimize the backlog rate.

Reportedly, draws will be held by the government for 15 to 25 times to choose candidates for permanent residency starting from the end of January. The number of people and timing will differ to help government consider factors such as swings in the labor force or the number of profiles present in the pool.

The government expects to bring 172,100 and 186,700 new people in the economic class of immigrants and hence the draws will work towards achieving the goal. And, it will also publicize the time and date of each draw for invited Candidates and specifies immigration program if applicable.

Sources stated that the government will announce how many invitations were granted and also the lowest score it accepted after every draw. Applicants who receive an invitation will have 60 days to submit their application. All the above mentioned selection process will be taken care by a computer and reviewing the documents and assessing the candidates will be done by a person.

The government said the final evaluation will be made within six months or less for 80% of the cases. It also has plans to improve the system by giving employers access to the pool of candidates, which helps them to pick the right candidate to fill the vacant position on the condition that qualified Canadians are not available to fill the jobs.
