Last week, the government of Canada confirmed they will be implementing significant changes to the Express Entry system scheduled to take effect on November 19, 2016. The tabled regulations include a number of positive changes, such as extending the deadline to submit an applicant’s permanent residence application from 60 days to 90 days; granting points to applicants who have completed post-secondary education in Canada; and granting points for arranged employment to applicants with non-LMIA based work permits.
Applicants who have completed post-secondary education in Canada can now expect to receive an additional 15 to 30 points, depending on the length of their program. In many cases, these additional points are sufficient to increase an applicant’s likelihood of receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) from 50% to over 80%.
We are also pleased with the government’s decision to award arranged employment points to applicants working under non-LMIA based work permits. There is list of eligible work permits, which includes intra-company transferees, significant benefit workers, religious workers, as well those working under a free trade agreement. Under the new system, these workers will be eligible for 50 to 200 points, depending on the skill level of the job being offered. For more information,click here.
