Canada, the land of the Maple Leaf welcomes new immigrants each year. The Canadian government has proposed to increase immigration levels to support economic development and drive growth.
Canada has announced the 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan and resolves to take in over 400,000 permanent residents every year. This is much higher than the earlier immigration targets and more admissions are coming from the Economic Class.
The Express entry program of Canada provides an immigration pathway for the immigrants. The three skilled economic immigration programs are:
- Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)
- Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP)
- Canadian Experience Class (CEC)
Profiles of all people who have registered for the immigration programs are managed by the Express Entry program. They are ranked with the help of the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS). Candidates need to fulfill some eligibility criteria to submit their profile in the express entry program.
If the score is 67 points or higher, they are qualified to apply under the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP). But if they are not able to meet the cut-off for 67 points, they can try to:
- Improve language Skills
- Take another degree, diploma or certificate
- Receive a job offer from Canada
MilkyWay Immigration Consultants, the premier Immigration consultant in Saudi Arabia brings to you an insight to this extent.
