根据加拿大移民局情报(Canada Immigration Newsletter)显示,移民,难民和公民管理部门于14号发布了一些改变。最近的一些快速入境移民制度的重大改变即将会在这个11月19号开始生效,但仍然会有更多的改变产生。

CICNews上周已经报道过,这次的主要变动包括: 对之前没有劳动力市场评估(LMIA)的部分工作类型工作人员提供奖励积分,拥有加拿大教育证书的更可得到额外积分,以及申请永久居留的邀请有效期延长。要想看详情请点击查看『New Comprehensive Ranking System for Express Entry』。

有趣的是,IRCC的新闻还指出,此次改革是政府正在不断改进,以带来更公平,更灵活有责任的移民制度,以满足更多新的需求,确保长期的「中产阶级」经济增长。

此次改变造成的结果就是,在11月19日事实的变化后随着时间的推移也许会带来一系列的变化。例如,自由党曾表示,会考虑将现在已经和加拿大人有关联的部分申请人,例如在加拿大有亲戚是加拿大居民或永久居民者能得到更多额外积分。

暂时来说,IRCC还没有将上面这一项放在额外积分奖励中,但不保证这样的更改不会出现在未来。今天的报道已经很明显提示了以后将会有类似或者其它更多的改变。

另外,正如政府的声明所示,加拿大的移民制度不断变化。不仅联邦政府正在修改移民法例,还有省政府也不断通过省提名计划(PNP)在进行修改。

增强的PNP类别与Express Entry(快速入境移民)系统对齐,不断打开和更新,为各位快速入境移民的申请人向PNP提供申请表,并有可能获得600个CRS积分的机会。申请的候选人应该注意到,加强的提名证书现在是CRS最重要的一个因素,因为一个工作机会现在值200或者50点,至于积分值由工作的职位而定。(点击此处查看此次的更改。

加拿大移民局局长表示,此次的改变主要是要吸引更多高技术移民,让他们变成永久居民,从而让我们社会的经济更加强大和坚固。

由于移民相关法律法规不断在更改,移民局建议申请人不断关注修改的法例,随时准备更改的资料来保证自己的申请能够顺利完成。

Canada’s immigration system may be set for further changes

The Express Entry immigration system will undergo important changes that will come into effect later this week on November 19, but that might not be the end of adjustments to be made to the system.

Earlier today, November 14, the department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issued a press release in which it outlined the changes to be made in the short term.

As CICNews reported last week, these changes include: the awarding of points for certain job offers made to workers in Canada who do not have a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), additional points for candidates with a Canadian education, and an extension on the validity of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for permanent residence. (To learn about these changes in more detail, see our previous article on the subject of imminent changes to the Express Entry Comprehensive Ranking System.)

Interestingly, IRCC’s press release also states that the reforms ‘are part of a number of improvements the Government is making on a continual basis to bring changes for a more fair and responsive immigration system that will address emerging needs and ensure long-term economic growth for the middle class.’

As a consequence, it may well be the case that the changes to be implemented on November 19 are the first in a series of possible changes that may be made over time. For example, the Liberal government has previously said that it would consider the awarding of points to candidates who have prior connections to Canada, such as having a sibling in Canada as a citizen or permanent resident.

At this time, IRCC has not brought in modifications with respect to awarding points having a sibling in Canada. However, that does not necessarily mean that such a change may not take place in the future. Today’s press release certainly leaves scope for such a change, or other changes, to be made in the future.

Being proactive

As the government’s statement demonstrates, Canada’s immigration system is constantly changing. In addition, it is not only the federal government that is in a position to make important changes — the provincial governments also do so through the Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs).

Enhanced PNP categories that are aligned with the Express Entry system open and/or change on an ongoing basis, offering Express Entry candidates an opportunity to submit an application to a PNP and potentially be awarded 600 CRS points. Candidates should note that an enhanced nomination certificate is now the most important factor under the CRS, as a job offer is now worth either 200 or 50 points, depending on the position (to learn more about this change, click here).

The fact that stakeholders are now presented with a federal system (Express Entry) that is undergoing changes, as well as a range of PNP options that have also proven to change over time, highlights the importance for candidates to be proactive and engaged with the system at both the federal and provincial levels.

Speaking of the improvements to Express Entry that have been outlined, Canada’s Immigration Minister said that “We have committed to doing more to attract highly skilled immigrants to come to Canada and become permanent residents, because this is important to build our economy and strengthen our society. I am confident that the changes to Express Entry will be one of the many positive outcomes of the changes we will be bringing to our immigration system.”

What candidates can do to prepare

“With only a few days left until the changes that have been outlined are brought into force, it is important for candidates in the pool — as well as other individuals thinking of immigrating to Canada through Express Entry — to understand how this may benefit them and their profile,” says Attorney David Cohen.

“Candidates should also note that IRCC, as the department itself states, is in a position to make changes to the system on a continual basis. Therefore, candidates who stay up to date and maintain a fully updated Express Entry profile, as well as stay abreast of all PNP options, put themselves in the best possible position to immigrate to Canada successfully. On this basis, I would encourage anybody who is thinking of entering the Express Entry pool to do so as soon as possible.”

The new and improved CRS Calculator

Since the changes to the Comprehensive Ranking System were announced last Thursday, November 10, many thousands of people around the world have successfully been able to gauge their CRS points total using the CRS Calculator, which has been updated to reflect the imminent changes to the system.
