Our Government, under the leadership of the Honourable John McCallum, has improved the Express Entry System. As of Saturday, November 19th, 2016, the following changes will be implemented:
1) There are new ways to be awarded points for a qualifying job offer, without the need for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA): A) 50 points – National Occupational Classification (NOC) 0, A or B occupation, and B) 200 points – National Occupational Classification (NOC) 00. 2) International students and graduates will receive points for Canadian educational credentials: A) 0 points – secondary school education, B) 15 points – 1 to 2 year post-secondary program, and C) 30 points – 3+ year post-secondary program, degree, diploma or certificate, including a Master’s, professional or doctoral degree.
3) The time limit to apply for permanent residency after receiving an Invitation To Apply (ITA) will be extended to 90 days from 60 days.
These changes mean Canada will now welcome more highly skilled candidates whose skills and experience will help support and grow our economy.
