Canada Express Entry Applications
In Toronto, last week Chris Alexander, Citizenship and Immigration minister for Canada, addressed members of Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce. He emphasized that, government is finding ways to promote immigration and one such way is Express Entry Scheme. This particular scheme would help Canada get required skilled category workers. 

Alexander stated that India is vital as it would help the country cater to its future needs. He also expressed his commitment in fostering bilateral ties between and India and Canada and also his confidence in ICCC’s leadership.  India is not only the biggest source country for economic growth, but it also helps attract new investors. Canada is now focusing on India; hence active support of community leaders is also essential in order to take this relation to the next level, said the minister. 

The minister also emphasized that the upcoming visit of Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi to Canada will be another milestone promoting Canada India relations.  Bilateral trade and investment can be promoted by having ties between two countries. It will also pave the way for the movement of capital as well as human resources at a large scale. 

ICCC President, Dharma P Jain, welcomed the minister and also introduced him to the other members of the chamber. 

While answering the questions raised by the ICCC members, Hon. Minister Alexander stated that they are looking to the make visa process easy, so that it takes lesser time to process in order to fulfill the future immigration needs.
