Ltd. | www.abhinav.com CANADA EXPRESS ENTRY Canada Express Entry Program for Skilled Professionals Under the system for selection of candidate under Canada FSW program, applicable till 31st December 2014 the applications are accepted based on a specified selection criterion and occupation list of select occupations. Those qualified are accepted on First-in-the-queue basis. As per the announcement by citizenship and Immigration, Canada, the selection criteria for skilled professionals, tradespersons and applicants meeting requirements of Canadian Experience Class will change from 1st January 2015. Summary of new selection criteria- Canada Express Entry Program: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. A new point system will become applicable under the program. The quota of Skilled Immigrants that Canadian Government permits will be processed more speedily, with draws on a regular basis from the Express Entry pool. Those familiar with the process know that quota for skilled professionals applications under Federal Skilled program is always limited and hence sooner one gets into the pool, better will be chances to get selected before quota starts getting filled up. One can lodge an application in the pool, even where one DOES NOT have a confirmed job offer from a Canadian employer. Our view is that confirmed job offers for candidates and applicants, not physically present in Canada are hard to come by for many reasons. The majority of applications under the Canadian Federal Skilled Worker Program are likely to be filed in the Express Entry pool without job offers, and hence, everybody will continue to have a chance to become a Canadian permanent resident. Quality profiles will get preference and those higher in ranking in the pool will stand a better chance of getting an invite from Citizenship and Immigration, Canada. One can also look at work experience during last 10 years. Every occupation appearing in O, A and B NOC (National Occupational Classification) category may be able to get into the Express Entry pool. To know, whether your occupation belongs to any of these 3 occupational categories, please contact business managers at one our offices immediately by email or phone. There is NO indication of any minimum point criteria required to lodge applications in the pool. So that is great news! Having said that higher the ranking, more are the chances of one getting selected from the pool and getting invited to apply for Canada Permanent Residence Visa. To know how to get a higher ranking in the pool, please contact business managers at one our offices immediately by email or phone. Unmarried, as well as married, candidates can apply. If married, spousal credentials will be of great help! If unmarried, no reason to lose hope, as you will be credited with higher points. Abhinav Outsourcings Pvt. Ltd. | www.abhinav.com CANADA EXPRESS ENTRY 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. The younger the better, with those up to 29 years of age getting maximum benefit, while those older need note lose hope as they can compensate for loss of age points by scoring high IELTS score and against higher educational qualifications as also, where possible getting a job offer from a Canadian Employer. Better IELTS score and higher educational qualifications and improve your place in the Express Entry pool rankings! To claim spousal points, the spouse MUST undergo WES (Educational credential assessment), as well as IELTS test requirement. Prospects are also bright for candidates who have Canadian experience and / or Canadian Qualifications, even without any CURRENT confirmed job offer from Canada. At this stage, it seems there are NO points for blood relations in Canada under the Express Entry program. There will be draws on regular basis from the express entry pool - with resumes securing higher ranking being picked up FIRST. Prospects are brightest with those who indeed end up getting job offers from Canada but starting point for that is getting your application into the Express Entry Pool and getting your profile posted in Canadian Job Bank. The new quota for skilled professionals under the express entry program starts 1st January 2015 and so there is EVERY reason for you to sign up with ABHINAV immediately to get into the pool ASAP. Remember that it will take time for both spouses to get WES and IELTS scores and there is limited quota for federal skilled workers this year as well! Mail your and if applicable, spousal resume to [email protected] or speak one of our business managers at any of our offices and start the process! Abhinav Outsourcings Pvt. Ltd. | www.abhinav.com CANADA EXPRESS ENTRY Canada Express Entry Program: Selection from Express Entry Pool by Canadian employers, federal government and provincial agencies As stated already having a confirmed job offer is not a compulsory requirement to be eligible to be qualified under the express entry program. Where applicable, following is the process and procedure. After your application has been put into the pool and resume posted in Canadian it can be assessed by the Canadian employers and provinces will have access to a database pool of professionals and trades person Under the Express Entry Electronic system. After shortlisting the candidates, the employers will approach Department of Employment and Social Development, Government of Canada and apply for Labor Market Impact assessment. Such an assessment indicates that the employer tried to look for similar profiles within Canada but was not successful. He is therefore permitted to make an offer to a professional or trades person or a candidate qualifying under Canadian Experience class whose profile is listed in the pool of Candidates under express entry on-line system or is in the Canada’s job bank. Armed with such an offer, the candidate can claim additional points while lodging his application under the express entry pool and will be placed higher in rankings in the pool. They will have better chance of getting immediately selected in draws because of higher ranking and can expect an invite from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to file an application for permanent residence visa to Canada, as also faster processing. Abhinav Outsourcings Pvt. Ltd. | www.abhinav.com CANADA EXPRESS ENTRY Canada Express Entry Program: Steps by step process 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Candidates meet the minimum documentation requirements such as getting educational credentials done and undergoing IELTS test and gets other critical documents ready. Where married, both these requirements must be met for spouse as well. Our team will be pleased to guide you on critical documents area once you have signed as our client.
