ExpressEntryNEW. EDIT 7

Are you the lucky one !!

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has invited 2,000 candidates in the Express Entry pool to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a draw that took place the morning of Wednesday, November 8. The Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score of the lowest-ranked candidate issued an Invitation to Apply (ITA) was 458.

This latest draw, the 77th to take place since Express Entry was first introduced in January, 2015 and the 27th so far this year, is the first draw to operate under a new procedure whereby in the event that multiple candidates have tied CRS scores, profiles are ranked according to the date and time of submission of the profiles, with profiles that have been in the pool longer being prioritized for invitation over newer profiles. This tie-break policy was first unveiled by IRCC as a possible future strategy last June. Therefore, it is possible that not all candidates with exactly 458 CRS points were invited on this occasion.

Last week, the federal Minister of Immigration, Ahmed Hussen signed off on two Express Entry draws, in which only those candidates eligible under the Federal Skilled Trades Class (FSTC), as well as candidates with a provincial nomination, were invited to apply. Candidates with a provincial nomination obtained through an enhanced Express Entry-aligned Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) stream receive 600 additional CRS points and an ITA at a subsequent draw from the pool.

Program-specific draws, such as those that took place last week, are the exception rather than the norm. In those draws, IRCC invited 795 candidates to apply, a factor that may have contributed to the relatively low number of candidates invited in todays draw. As a result, this was likely to have been a significant contributing factor to the increase in the CRS cut-off threshold.

Good Luck.

Notice Supplementary Information 2017 Immigration Levels Plan. :

Ottawa, October 31, 2016 Following the tabling of the 2016 Annual Report to Parliament on Immigration on October 31, 2016, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is pleased to release details on its 2017 Immigration Levels Plan. Canada will welcome between 280,000 and 320,000 (target 300,000) new permanent residents in 2017.

Beginning in 2017, this category will also include admissions resulting from up to 2,000 applications in the new Atlantic Immigration Pilot Program.

Admissions also include applicants who applied to the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program and Canadian Experience Class prior to the launch of Express Entry on January 1, 2015 (i.e., applications in the inventory), as well as those who made an application using Express Entry.

Levels targets and ranges have not been established for each individual program as a majority of admissions in 2017 are expected to come from Express Entry. This approach reflects the current way that federal economic immigrants are selected under the Express Entry system. The Express Entry system determines which programs foreign nationals qualify for based on the information they provide and awards them points under the Comprehensive Ranking System for their ability to successfully enter the Canadian work force (e.g., age, education, official language proficiency and work experience).

Return to table 1 note 1 referrer Table 1 note 2.. Please see the LINK ABOVE.

Includes admissions in the Caring for Children Class and the Caring for People with High Medical Needs Class, which are pilot programs that replaced the Live-in Caregiver Program in late 2014. Applications received under the legacy Live-in Caregiver Program will continue to be processed and resulting admissions are reflected in the 2017 target.

Return to table 1 note 2 referrer Table 1 note 3
Includes admissions in the Self-Employed Persons Program and the Start-up Visa Program for Immigrant Entrepreneurs, which was created as a pilot program in 2013. This category also includes admissions resulting from a small number of applications in the Federal Immigrant Investor and Entrepreneur Programs, which were cancelled in 2014.

Return to table 1 note 3 referrer Table 1 note 4
Includes admissions of persons selected on humanitarian and compassionate grounds, for reasons of public policy and in the Permit Holder Class.

Good Jobs Good Pay and a few with Start up...

We are always doing something to keep us awake and today I found this. Please listen to this song and enjoy.. Hope you like this..

Did any of you get lucky..: In this NEW DRAW, If so, there you have it. A Xmas wish and a New Years Gift from CANADA.

Job vacancies in Canadas private sector rose to a record high in the third quarter of 2017, says a new report by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.
Canadas private sector job vacancy rate stood at 2.8 per cent for the quarter, the report says, noting the last time Canadian employers faced a similar situation was in early 2008.

In raw terms, this represents a record-high 361,700 jobs left unfilled for at least four months because employers have not found suitable candidates, reports the CFIB, a non-profit organization with a membership of more than 109,000 independent businesses across Canada.

The situation was a product of Canadas growing economy and a shortage of skilled labour, says the study, which queried business owner/operators across Canada and was based on 2,033 responses.

Labour shortages are again becoming a major hindrance to businesses across the country, especially small firms, said Ted Mallett, Chief Economist at CFIB. We need government to take action, to find solutions for chronic shortages that inhibit a small business ability to take on new contracts, expand and innovate.

Would like to hear from a few who want to get into Canada in the next year..


A very Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.


CIC News / 2018 / January / No job offer? No problem, new Express Entry report confirms.

No job offer? No problem, new Express Entry report confirms. 90% of invitations in first half of 2017 went to candidates without a Canadian job offer January 4, 2018.

New statistics released by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) reveal that Express Entry candidates without a Canadian job offer have been the big beneficiaries of targeted improvements to the way candidates are ranked.

According to IRCC, 90 per cent of Express Entry candidates who received an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for permanent residence in the first half of 2017 did not have a Canadian job offer, up from 62 per cent in the 11 months before IRCC reduced the number of points it awards for a job offer in November 2016.

The data confirms that this move has significantly shifted the number of ITAs for Canadian permanent residence in favour of candidates with higher so-called human capital scores, namely candidates in Express Entrys Federal Skilled Worker Class.

Human capital factors include age, proficiency in English and French, education, and work experience. Combined, they provide what is known as a candidates core Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, which can reach a maximum of 600 points. In its study, IRCC says these factors are strongly correlated to higher earning potential.

The change to additional CRS points for a Canadian job offer saw them cut from 600 to between 50 and 200 points, depending on the position.

Other changes were also introduced at the same time, namely points for Canadian study, and the broadening of what constitutes a qualifying job, and an increase in the amount of time that candidates with an ITA had to submit their completed applications for Canadian permanent residence.

The data released by IRCC compares the 11.5 months prior to the changes and a roughly six-month period after they were introduced, from November 19, 2016, to May 31, 2017. IRCCs comparison confirms the following:

The proportion of invited candidates without a Canadian job offer rose from 62 per cent to 90 per cent.

The proportion of invited candidates who studied in Canada has increased from 30 per cent to 40 per cent.

The proportion of Federal Skilled Worker candidates invited to apply increased from 25 per cent to 48 per cent.

The number of profiles deemed eligible for the Express Entry pool increased as a result of the changes.

The changes resulted in shifts in the occupations and countries of citizenship of candidates being invited to apply.

The changes helped narrow the gender gap among invited candidates. Number of ITAs issued to candidates with and without job offers, and with and without Canadian study experience




IRCC starts 2018 with record low cut-off score for a first draw of the year Cut-off CRS score of 446 is 22 points lower than first Express Entry draw of 2017

January 10, 2018

Canada has invited 2,750 Express Entry candidates to apply for Canadian permanent residence in a draw that took place January 10, 2018. The cut-off Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score for this draw was 446.

Todays score of 446 is the same cut-off CRS score as the previous draw that took place on December 20. It represents the lowest CRS cut-off for a first draw of the year since the Express Entry system came into effect in January 2015.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) again made use of the tie-break rule in this draw. The tie-break time and date was November 18, 2017, at 6:30:42 UTC.

ONTARIO is looking for 6000 Provincial Nominees..:

Ontario has announced an increased Provincial Nominee Program allocation for 2018 and the opening of its popular Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream, along with seven others.

The Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) has been given the green light to nominate 6,600 immigrants in 2018, an increase of 600 more than its official 2017 allocation from Canadas federal government.

The OINP also said it will resume issuing Notifications of Interest (NOIs) to applicants who qualify for its Express Entry Human Capital Priorities Stream, which allows Ontario to search the federal Express Entry pool and select candidates in the Federal Skilled Worker Class and Canadian Experience Class with at least 400 Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) points and who meet other criteria. For more information on Human Capital Priorities requirements, please click here.

Any Express Entry candidate with a Provincial Nomination receives an additional 600 points toward their CRS score, putting them well within reach of an invitation to apply for Canadian permanent residence.

The Human Capital Priorities Stream issued NOIs on a number of occasions in 2017, including a special opening last July that waived the requirement to have at least 400 CRS points for Express Entry candidates with work experience in a number of Information and Communications Technology-related occupations.

Anyone who receives an NOI through the Human Capital Priorities Stream now has 45 calendar days to submit their application online for Provincial Nomination.

Ontarios two other Express Entry-aligned streams, the Express Entry French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream and the Express Entry Skilled Trades Stream, have also opened and will be issuing NOIs.

Five other OINP streams are also now accepting applications. They are:

Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker Stream
Employer Job Offer: International Student Stream
Employer Job Offer: In-Demand Skills Stream
Corporate Stream
Entrepreneur Stream

Canada to commit $440 million ADDITIONAL Dollars for immigration increase over next 3 years. Which includes Provincial Nominee Programs, Express Entry key drivers of Canada's three-year plan and funds needed to support those sectors.

February 15, 2018.

Canadas Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussein says the Federal Governments multi-year Immigration levels plan, is on track and an additional sum of $440 million will be committed to ensure its success.

Hussen provided an update Thursday on Canadas 2018 immigration levels before Parliaments Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration.

Last November, Canada put aside one-year immigration levels planning in favour of a three-year plan covering 2018 to 2020. The plan calls for a gradual increase in immigration levels over that time, from an overall admissions target of 310,000 in 2018 to 340,000 in 2020.

Hussein said Canadas new multi-year targets represent the highest admissions in more than 100 years and the highest percentage of immigration in more than 40 years.

There are many more OPPORTUNITIES for Engineers and Engineers who have done work in the field and can qualify as technicians too.

ARE YOU one such Individual. If so Please respond back. Enter into Canada and then branch out. The Technicians make as much or more in some instances. Please do some research and have your Paper Work done and then get back.

Good Luck.


Today's needs as found in Job Search. See if it fits your needs.

DO YOU have any of these skills currently? OR will you be qualifying for any of these?
If so, your skills are in demand. But most likely they will hire you at the bottom rung
of the ladder and if at the intermediate level, then accept the job and move on.

Here is some news about the LATEST DRAW..:

Draws From The Express Entry Pool (Updated)
Express Entry Draws: 2018
Draw # Minimum CRS Score Required Date of Draw # of ITAs Issued
85 ... 456 ....................................... March 14, 2018 3,000
84 ... 442 February 21, 2018 3,000
83 .... 442 February 7, 2018 3,000
82 ... 444 January 24, 2018 2,750
81 ... 446 January 10, 2018 2,750

The rate at which the technology is progressing, I find that there will be a need for more Immigrants who have mastered the skills in the Data Processing, Storage and Analysis and the consensus is that the quantum of people they are looking to bring into Canada will increase even more. The current needs are pegged at 300,000 per year and they want to make it a Million in the next three years. The way the things are moving, it might get increased over and above that.

That is the GOOD NEWS for this Month and if you have been asked to apply for an Entry into Canada, then, you can be sure that you will get into a nice post soon enough, as the jobs are surfacing faster than expected.

Good Luck.

With Years of Experience if you advance, you will make..:
