One million new immigrants by 2021:
More than one million new permanent residents were slated to join between 2019 and 2021. The exuberant immigration level plan had a good run in 2019. Express Entry draws and Provincial Nominee Programs even performed well in the first half of 2020. The fact that pandemic has disturbed the equilibrium is being restored well by progressive Canadian immigration policies.
The liberal policies of Canada immigration ensured that foreign workers remained largely exempt from Canada’s current COVID-19 travel restrictions. Regular conduct of Express Entry and Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) draws have kept the hopes of several aspirants alive. In fact, the number of Invitations to Apply (ITAs) issued in 2020 so far through Express Entry draws is the highest since 2017.
Ministers have reaffirmed their faith in immigration for the growth of Canada’s economy. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is expecting an incoming surge in global talent once the pandemic has passed. The provincial and federal immigration programs such as the Federal Skilled Worker Class and the Provincial Nominee Program are some of the best options for aspiring immigrants.
A candidate willing to apply under such programs must have a good Comprehensive Ranking System score that typically depends on age, educational qualification, work experience, language proficiency, spouse adaptability, etc.
In a parallel discussion, some experts and lawyers dealing in Canadian Immigration believe technology can be best put to use in such testing times. Although limited only to highly-skilled professional, a secure digital work permit and a social identification number (SIN) assigned to them will solve worker shortage issue. A digital work permit would allow these “virtual immigrants” to remotely start working with their new Canadian employers. Once the entry ban to Canada is to be lifted, the digital work permit would automatically be replaced by the regular work permit and SIN if the worker moves to Canada.
Canadian borders remain closed yet Immigration scenario appears to be active with regular yet changed Express Entry and Provincial Nominee Program draws.
