  • Quebec will cancel 16,000 immigration applications as controversial Bill 9 is adopted overnight|
    During a marathon session until Sunday morning, the National Assembly of Quebec passed the controversial Bill 9, which will result in the cancellation of approximately 16,000 pending immigration applications for the program. Skilled Workers of Quebec (QSW). The legislation also lays the groundwork for the introduction of a “values test” that will be required for applications for permanent residence in the future.   The Canadian province of Quebec, home to the city of Montreal, has entered into a single immigration agreement with the federal government under which Quebec chooses its own economic immigrants.   Quebec Immigration Minister Simon Jolin-Barrette introduced Bill 9 in February 2019. Thanks to this new legislation, Quebec will be able to move quickly to its new system of selection and application of legislation. immigration, Arrima, that Jolin-Barrette claims to reduce treatment time from three years to just six months and will allow Quebec to be more selective among skilled immigrant workers.   Arrima is an electronic application management system used to manage applications of the Quebec Skilled Worker Program. Similar to the federal Express Entry system, Arrima uses a points system to award points to candidates for various criteria designed to assess their ability to integrate into Quebec’s workforce.   Although Jolin-Barrette praises this new immigration system of “immigration moderator”, it should be noted that this system was not implemented by his government, Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ), but in reality by the former Liberal government in August 2018.   Law 9 was strongly criticized for its provision to remove a backlog of QSW applications submitted before the new Arrima system. When Bill 9 was introduced in February, there were about 18,000 applications pending, but about 2,000 were processed in previous months, leaving about 16,000 pending applications to be thrown away. This plan to eliminate as many requests has been sharply criticized by members of opposition parties as well as by a group of Quebec immigration lawyers who have already brought the province to court for Bill 9 .   As legislation has only been passed in recent hours, it is unclear exactly how the law will come into effect and when QSW pending applications will be officially canceled. This story is in development and new details will be released as soon as they become available.   In particular, this law will not affect the popular Quebec program of experience (PEQ) for French-speaking immigrants who have already worked or studied in Quebec.   If you have any questions, please contact our experts on info@immigrationexperts.com   Call us on:   0120-6618011 0120-6618123 +91-9999467676 Read more »
  • Drop in CRS score in the latest Express draw invited 3,350 Express entry candidates|
    Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) held an express draw on June 12th. A total of 3,350 applicants who applied for permanent resident status in Canada through the federal government’s Express Enrollment Program were invited.   The Express Entry Program manages the profile of applicants who have registered in Canada’s three major economic immigration programs: the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience (CEC). Each profile of the candidates is given a score corresponding to the score of the Comprehensive ranking system (CRS), according to which the rank of the express profiles is determined in the express pool.   The highest ranked profile in express pool is invited to apply for Canadian permanent residency via regular express draws. ITA allows the applicant to submit an application for a Canadian PR visa to IRCC. The goal of the Government of Canada is to process Canadian entry visa applications for Express Entry applicants within six months or less.   In the last draw, the minimum score required by the CRS was set at 465 points, which corresponds to a decrease of 5 points from the previous limit of the CRS score. The time interval between the two consecutive draws plays an important role in determining the CRS result threshold. The former 470 point threshold previously set by the CRS was higher due to the four-week gap between the two express draws for all programs. But only two weeks passed between the previous draw of May 29 and the last draw of June 12. This shorter period gives less time to replenish the express pool with skilled immigrants, reducing the CRS score cut-off.   With this latest draw, IRCC issued a total of 38,450 ITAs this year to the express entry candidates. This number of ITAs is 6,250 more than the number issued at the same time in 2018. This increase is consistent with Canada’s higher admission target for 2019 and 2020 for the three programs managed by the express entry program.   IRCC used its tie-break rule with timestamp – June 6, 2019, at 13:51:59 UTC. This means that candidates who entered the express pool before the hour and time used as a timestamp and who obtained a minimum of 465 points and over received an ITA.   In order to increase the CRS score, obtaining a provincial application can greatly improve the candidate’s CRS score. An express entry candidate who is able to obtain a provincial nomination certificate is awarded 600 CRS points, thus guaranteeing that an ITA will be issued to the candidate to allow him to apply for a Canada PR visa to IRCC.   Reference is taken from CIC news Read more »

  • Joint press release with MP Dan Tehan, Member of Parliament for Wannon – New Approach address labor shortages|
    A New Program to Address Labor Shortages in the Coastal Region of Canada Victoria’s Great South Coast was officially launched in Warrnambool.   The South Coast Large Area Designated Migration Agreement (DAMA) provides employers in the region with the opportunity to recruit foreign workers for positions that Australian residents can not afford.   The DAMA is an Australian government initiative with the Great South Coast DAMA, a first for Victoria and the first to be piloted by the local government.   Dan Tehan, MP for Wannon, said, “The DAMA is designed to support local businesses by helping them fulfill key roles.   “In recent years, many employers have told us that they have trouble recruiting people in particular sectors. The community should also be reassured that every effort will be made to fill vacancies locally before using DAMA.   “This is a targeted program, and it is important to understand that the workers appointed through the RFSA do not replace local workers, they fill gaps in the labor market that are holding back some businesses.   ” DAMA will mean that businesses on the Great South Coast can remain productive and competitive. The Minister of Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs, David Coleman, said the federal government is committed to meeting the skill needs of regional Australia.   “The Morrison government is working to support the growth of the regions and to ensure that our migration program meets the needs of the labor market, particularly in regional Australia,” said Coleman.   “Our first priority is always to fill positions with Australians, but the immigration system can play an important role in reducing regional skills shortages.   “We have recently implemented RFSAs in several regions, including Kalgoorlie in Washington State, Orana in NSW and Far North Queensland, to ensure sustained regional economies where Australian workers are not available. The region covered by the RFSA includes the municipalities of Glenelg, Moyne, Southern Grampians, Warrnambool, Corangamite and Colac Otway.   A total of 27 professions were identified as eligible to be considered under the program and belong to various sectors. The RFSA offers concessions that are not normally available to visa workers and provides a potential route to permanent residency for employees.   “Up to 100 employees can be appointed in the first year of the agreement,” said Peter Schneider, General Manager of Warrnambool City Council.   “There is a range of checks and balances in place to make sure the program delivers the right results. “When an employer applies for a job, we look at their ability to retain other employees, their work history, whether the job description fits the company, and whether the roles were advertised unsuccessfully in Australia.

This immigration pathway is called Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP).   OINP’s Human Capital Priorities stream allows the province to search for the skilled immigrants in the federal government’s express entry program – express pool. These immigrants are able to meet the requirements of the labor market and clear the provincial eligibility criteria. This allows the province to issue them an invitation to apply for provincial nomination and apply for Canada PR visa.   If an express entry candidate is given a provincial nomination they are awarded 600 CRS points. This gives the boost to the candidate’s CRS score that is required to get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) to submit their application for Canada PR visa to the IRCC.   The very first step for a candidate to be considered for OINP’s Human Capital Priorities Stream or any other express entry linked stream is to enter the express pool.   The draw held on May 31st is the second time in this year for the OINP’s Human Capital Priorities Stream, and the 1,072 invitations in this draw bring the total invitations issued in this year comes to 2,565 Notification of Interest (NOI) under Ontario’s Human Capital Priorities Stream.   The latest draw targeted the express entry candidates who have work experience in the following 11 occupations: NOC 0114: Other administrative services managers NOC 0601: Corporate Sales Managers NOC 1122: Professional occupations in business management consulting NOC 0124: Advertising, marketing, and public relations managers NOC 0621: Retail and wholesale trade managers NOC 1111: Financial auditors and accountants NOC 3012: Registered nurses and registered psychiatric nurses NOC 0111: Financial managers NOC 1114: Other financial officers NOC 0651: Managers in customer and personal services, n.e.c   On occasion, OINP conducts targeted draws through the Human Capital Priorities Stream for candidates with credentials that are not among its usual eligibility requirements.   This draw marks the first time OINP has targeted the above-mentioned occupations. Previously it targeted only the IT occupations. Targeting various occupations provides the OINP with the flexibility to adapt its Human Capital Priorities Stream according to its labor market and economic development priorities. It also becomes more responsive to the needs of the province’s employers.   Reference is taken from CIC news Read more »
