January 25, 2021
Canada is focusing on federal systems, like Express Entry, to find dedicated and experienced skilled workers who can build up the country’s economy. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced these changes on the 31st of October, 2018 heralding a new wave of immigration program creations and a booming economy. The Express Entry system is not the only way for immigrants to make Canada their home. Thanks to the new Canada immigration plan, more people can choose to immigrate through programs like family sponsorships, family reunification, economic streams, Skilled Federal Trades, international students and more. The country has also put more emphasis on humanitarian programs and aim to be more accommodating to refugees and those wishing to start a new life in Canada. The country has also boosted its Canada immigration goals up to 330,800 for 2019 and even increased its goals for 2020 to 341,000! Ahmed Hussen, the Canadian Minister of IRCC stated, “under this plan, Canada will welcome more talented workers with the skills and expertise our economy needs.”
Economic ProgramsAs we mentioned earlier, the Express Entry system is one of the most popular immigration options. Around 25% of all immigrants will qualify under the following programs through the Express Entry system:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program;
