The immigration authorities of Canada have given the highest number of invitations to apply in the twenty-seventh round for December 2016 held under the Express entry scheme. It has given the invitation to apply for permanent residency to 2878 immigrant applicants which are the highest number of all the immigration authorization programs.
This round of the express entry scheme which gave the highest number of invitations to apply also had the least score of 475 in the comprehensive ranking system, which was a significant reduction when compared with the draws held earlier.
In the express entry scheme, the draw number twenty-five had witnessed the least comprehensive ranking system and the score was lesser than 500, as quoted by the Immigration CA.
This was the second round in the succeeding weeks and the third round after the Canadian immigration authorities made significant alterations to the comprehensive ranking system in the Express entry scheme.
The immigration authorities in Canada introduced the Express entry scheme in 2015 that administers the overseas immigrations application of skilled workers for Canada across the globe through the Federal economic schemes. The initiatives included in this scheme include the Skilled Trades Program the Canada Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, and some of the Provincial Nominee Programs.
The immigration stakeholders are anticipating one more round that will have comprehensive ranking system scores much lower than 500 that will facilitate the immigration authorities in Canada to fulfill the immigration levels that were set for 2016.
The implication of this for the employers is that they would be positive to obtain an LMIA or selection under the provincial nomination programs that will assure the retention of employees for a longer duration.
On the other hand, the implication of this for the immigration applicants is that they can anticipate more rounds in the express entry scheme that will witness Canada issuing more invitations to apply and the qualifying scores would be lesser than 500. This will enable a large number of applicants to secure the permanent residency to Canada even if they do not possess job offer from a Canadian employer or the provincial immigrations program’s nomination.
Nevertheless, it is however recommended that the immigrant applicants have an offer of employment in Canada.
