Located in the northern part of the North America, Canada is today’s most commonly preferred destination to immigrate. With a culture that accepts all nationals and an organized immigration system, the country makes a permanent home to nearly 300,000 professionals and families each year.
Immigrants in Canada also are bestowed with entitlements to special schemes and exclusive benefits like free healthcare, social security, unemployment benefits etc., and a right to claim citizenship within 3 years. For these reasons, it is often referred as an Immigrant’s Capital City.
The immigration system of Canada follows a points based selection method, which came to be known as the World’s First Immigration system to invite skilled talent through a systematic and fair points based selection pattern.
Until January 2015, the country followed a quota-system which had several loopholes. The Citizenship and Immigration, Canada in association with the Canadian Government analyzed the drawbacks and designed an easy-immigrant entry called as Canada Express Entry for skilled professionals.
Through the Canada Express Entry system, skilled workers who hold the ability to meet the Canadian economic demands are given first preference for permanent residency. This became a platform for the immigration authorities to analyze, manage and invite skilled professionals through unprejudiced rankings.
As Canada Express Entry gives way to an easy intake of skilled immigrants and also a chance for unique talent to receive nominations by provincial bodies, immigration became a key drive for Canada to solve its issues of economic imbalance.
