Good News for Skilled Workers in 2017


New updates for people who would to apply for Immigration to Canada in 2017 under the Federal Skilled Worker Program. This unique immigration program became faster than ever since the has implemented the express entry system. In this article, I will explain to you what are the new updates that the government of Canada have created to improve this program.


The New Updates:

Some of the new updates is that the government has extended the duration where an applicant should submit an application for permanent residency after he/she been invited to do so. The extended period became from 60 days to 90 days which means that the applicant has more time to complete an application for permanent residence if he/she gets an invitation to apply.

On top of that, an applicant can now earn points in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) for studying in Canada above high school. Also, an applicant will earn a total of 50 points if he/she has a valid job offer in a NOC O, A or B occupation and will get 200 points if he/she has a valid job offer in a NOC OO occupation.

The government of Canada has changed their requirements on the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This assessment is will no longer be needed for certain qualifying job offers to receive CRS points.

To find out more about jobs that are exempt from needing a Labour Market Impact Assessment then you can book a private consultation and speak to a licensed immigration consultant directly to discuss your matter with you personally.

The good news as well that there is no limit of the number of applicants who can get into the pool under the express entry system and there is no deadline to submit your application to enter the pool.

The way how you can start, a licensed immigration consultant will help you creating your profile with Canadian immigration authority and then submits your profile on your behalf accurately. If your profile has been selected by the immigration authority then you will be invited to apply directly for permanent residency in Canada.
