Changes in Canada’s immigration selection system

Canada gives an excellent facilities for international students. This country remains an attractive destination for people wishing to continue their studies in an environment that can offers the quality education, settlement opportunities and career thereafter.

For the last decade more and more international students want to stay there for permanent residence. In this regard, potential immigrants need to know about Canada’s new Express Entry Program, which came into operation on January 1, 2015.

Due to this system information about all international students will be entered in electronic database. Every eligible candidate will get a certain number of points in accordance with Comprehensive Ranking System. Then they may receive an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence and make an application during 60 days.

This new immigration program has caused controversial opinions.

On the one hand, Express Entry system helps to identify the most perspective applicants and to reduce the time, which is need for the consideration of the application.

On the other hand, such program may reject some very promising candidates because of such minor details, like
lack of job offers or comparatively small work experience.

Anyway, new Express Entry Program is an important step in Canada’s immigration policy.
