It has been announced recently by the Canada Immigration Department that the current significant changes which
determines how to get the needed points under the Canada Express Entry will commence from June 6, 2017.
Points given under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) will now be in two new areas including having a sibling in Canada as well as inept knowledge of the French language
These changes are said to occur because of the decision of the Department of Canada Immigration to maximise points for Canadian education and minimise points for a qualified job offer.
It is expected that foreigners will now score 15 points for a level 7 in writing, reading, speaking and listening in the Niveu de competence linguistique Caanadiens (NLC) with an English level 5, making it about 136 being points awarded for a Candidates first official language.
Under the Canada Express System, an applicant who has a sibling residing in Canada will be awarded 15 additional points, this is because having a sibling quickens assimilation which is seen and known as a key to successful immigration system. The sibling must have the permanent resident permit, or be a Canadian and should be 18 years and above. Also, they must have a relationship be it blood, or a common law partner.
However, foreigners will be required to undergo registration for the Canada’s Job Bank as they will be qualified automatically to get an invitation, once they are in Canada’s Express Entry Pool. The Express Entry is a system executed by the Department of Canadian Immigration on January 1, 2015. This system accomplishes skilled worker applications under Federal Economic Programs.
By this system, employers are encouraged to secure a nomination under provincial nomination programs (PNP’s) to guarantee that the employees are retained. This system will also enable candidates to secure an employment offer.
