Points to Note About Canada Immigration New Rules
The immigration process in Canada has been extensively reformed. Those planning to emigrate to Canada for work opportunities should follow the new rules on immigration to Canada. Regarding immigration to Canada, there are two important points of discussion. First, there is increasing rioting in Canada against Canadian employers importing skilled workers from abroad, while Canadian citizens are being ignored for these vacant positions. Secondly, many immigrants have proven to be inadequate in terms of their communication skills in the two official Canadian languages - French and English.
There are several types of migrants, including skilled workers, who may be permanently resident in the country because of their contribution to the country's economy. There are also workers who have the ability to fill temporary jobs in Canada but are not expected to extend their stay beyond the employer's stated need. Canada's new immigration rules place a lot of emphasis on applicants' language skills and adaptability. The latter is determined by age, gender, educational background and occupation. In addition, a medical check-up as well as a security and law enforcement check will be carried out to ensure that the applicant may not cause any problems in the country.
The Federal Skilled Worker Program, which is expected to receive applications from May 4, 2013, has undergone several changes. One of the salient features is that individuals need to score at least 67 points based on the immigration selection factors set by CIC or Citizenship and Immigration Canada. In addition, applicants are expected to demonstrate that they have been working full-time for at least one year in one of the 24 occupations listed by the body over the past 10 years.
The skilled workers are usually sponsored by Canadian employers. In this context, the employer should seek a labor market opinion in order to offer the skilled worker a permanent full-time job. The LMO is granted on the basis of an analysis of the nature of the impact the skilled worker will have on the interests of the country and the interests of its domestic workers. Language tests are an important aspect of the selection process, even for people who have either obtained a doctorate or studied at one of the recognized Canadian institutions for at least two years.
To speed up the applications, the Canadian government has allowed for up to 4 different organizations. The purpose of these organizations is to assess the educational qualifications of applicants who wish to emigrate to Canada for full-time work. There are 24 points for language tests that are only done by CELPIP or IELTS for English. There are a maximum of 12 points for age and 12 for training. Likewise, there are 10 points for adaptability, 10 for arranged employment and 15 for work experience. There are special rules for spouses or relatives who want to travel with a skilled worker, especially with the intention of finding work opportunities.
