The Canadian government is reforming the immigration system to offer “express entry” to skilled immigrants who want to come here as permanent residents, as a way to fill open jobs where there are no available Canadian workers.
The government says express entry will do what the Temporary Foreign Worker Program can’t: it will ensure that skilled immigrants are able to settle in Canada permanently to help meet the country’s labour needs.
Immigration Minister Chris Alexander told a committee of MPs this week that express entry is “the top priority” for his department.
“It’s the new system for delivering all of our economic programs starting on Jan. 1, 2015,” Alexander said on Wednesday.
