According to this news release from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney has announced that the Federal Skilled Worker program will re-open with several changes.
The changes made to the program were in an effort to ensure the program attracts the kind of workers Canada needs.
The changes include:
“The government’s number one priority remains jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity,” he said. “The new Federal Skilled Worker program criteria will ensure Canada is selecting the skilled immigrants our economy needs, who are most likely to succeed and fully realize their potential in Canada.”
The Skilled Worker Program is the largest economic immigration program in Canada, and these changes are expected to make it so that it only takes a few months to process applications instead of a few years.
