The majority of skilled workers who want to apply for permanent residency in Canada has a common issue that they deal with: lack of a Canadian job offer. Are you one of them?
Are you already losing hope that you no longer want to apply for permanent residency in Canada? You have a reason to continue chasing your dream. Get inspired by the 90 percent of the Express Entry candidates who were without a job offer but received Invitations to Apply (ITAs) in the first half of 2017.
According to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), this came after the number of points given to a job offer was reduced in November 2016. Individuals who obtained higher scores from the human capital factors (age, language ability, work experience, and education) benefited a lot from this change. One of the proofs is the increase of 28%, from the previous 11 month’s record of 62 percent (January 1, 2016, to November 18, 2016).
Other Significant Changes
Aside from this, the percentage of Federal Skilled Worker candidates who received ITAs improved by 23% (from 25 percent to 48 percent). From 30 percent, 40 percent of invited candidates studied in Canada. Moreover, the number of individuals who created a profile and are deemed eligible for the Express Entry increased.
Before and after the change in points given to a job offer, Express Entry candidates from India received the most number of ITAs. This time, however, the increase of 12 percent is worth noting.
