Express Entry Begins in January 2015
The new Express Entry system in Canada will be effective as of January 2015; it will involve a two-step online process that begins with the candidate completing an online profile and concludes with the government, after ranking those found eligible, inviting candidates to apply for permanent residence.
The purpose of the system is to match potential immigrants with highly skilled vacant jobs in the Canadian labour market where Canadians are not available. “The idea is that more and more applicants will be coming in [to Canada] with that job offer already in hand,” said Sarah Anson-Cartwright, director of skills policy at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
The Express Entry system is expected to decrease permanent residency processing times to six months for those invited. However, some are concerned that the program will ignore those applicants looking for unskilled labour or low wage positions. As well, employers will not be given direct access to those in the Express Entry pool and it will be up to the government to match businesses with potential employees. In short, the new system we will have to wait and see what the new system has to offer once it comes into effect.

Completely smooth process. Rania did a great job in my Canada work permit. The team is absolutely competent and knowledgeable. Alicea was so amazing and was able to answer any of my questions immediately. I had peace of mind throughout the application. I would recommend them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications.
I highly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking help with navigating the legal minefield that is Permanent Residency. As someone who is very easily stressed, Lauren & Mariana have saved me a lot of sleepless nights. They are fast, efficient, reliable and honest and I will be telling any of my friends to use them for immigration. Thanks to them, my future with my husband in Canada is bright
