  • Australian Citizenship Permits Increase 88% in One Year|
    Australian Citizenship Permits Increased by 88%   Compared to last year’s 70,000 citizenship permits, more than 132,000 citizenship applications were approved this year, the Minister of Immigration said.   Wait times for Australian citizenship have decreased, queues have decreased and citizenship approvals have increased significantly over the last year, according to the latest figures released by the Interior Ministry.   Melbourne-based Harshdeep Singh Gill, a nurse by profession, filed his application for citizenship by application in September 2018. On Monday, he attended the Australian citizenship ceremony.   Mr. Gill, who was granted citizenship in less than 10 months, said he was able to postpone the date of his citizenship test, which speeded up the application process.   “The date of my initial test was in September 2019, but I continued to check online and was able to postpone my test date to May 2019. I passed the 100% test,” he said. he told SBS Hindi.   “I encourage people to check the online portal and check the date of the rescheduling test, which could result in an earlier test date.”   Approvals have increased by 88 per cent in a year   “Between July 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019, more than 132,000 applications for citizenship per grant were approved, compared with 70,000 in the same period of the previous year. That’s an 88% increase, said David Coleman, Minister of Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs.   Minister Coleman attributed these results to a series of reforms implemented by the Ministry of the Interior.   These measures include the creation of special teams within the Department of the Interior responsible for complex cases of citizenship, the improvement of systems to automate processes and a $ 9 million investment in the recruitment and training of additional staff to process requests as efficiently as possible.   “Thanks to these measures, the number of citizenship applications submitted in grant applications has dropped to approximately 222,800, up from nearly 250,000 last year, and this number is expected to continue to decline,” said Coleman.

  • Ontario target entry-level candidates with technical experience|
    OINP opens for Technical Experience   The Ontario government has announced its intention to nominate Entry Express candidates with Canadian experience in the technology sector for permanent residency.   Ontario had already announced that it would create a technology worker component. It will hold targeted draws for Express Entry candidates with work experience in six technology-related occupations through its existing Human Capital Priorities Stream.   The Express Entry system is the largest source of skilled labor in Canada and manages the pool of candidates for the Federal Skilled Worker Class, the Federal Skilled Trades and the Canadian Experience Class.   Candidates eligible for these programs have entered the Express Entry group where they are ranked according to the scores assigned in the Global Ranking System (CRS).   The CRS score of a candidate is based on factors such as age, education, qualified work experience and proficiency in English or French.   Provincial Express Entry Enrolled candidates receive 600 additional points for their CRS score, effectively guaranteeing an invitation to apply for permanent residence in Canada, or ITA.   Ontario is the most popular destination for new permanent residents of Canada, including those admitted through the Express Entry system. In 2018, 65% of new immigrants admitted through Express Entry were destined for Ontario.   To be considered for an invitation through an OINP technical draw, candidates must first create an Express Entry profile.   Tech draws will reflect employer needs   Ontario has a strong interest in technology-based prints, which are home to major technology hubs in the cities of Toronto, Ottawa and Kitchener-Waterloo.   Ontario is currently facing a shortage of technology workers, as is the rest of Canada. It is estimated that Canada’s information and communications technology sector will require 220,000 skilled workers by 2021.   The NAIP uses its Human Capital Priorities component to search in the Express Entry group for candidates who meet the specified federal and provincial criteria.   The OINP draws will search the Express Entry group for eligible candidates with work experience in one of the six targeted occupations:   Software Engineers and Designers (NOC 2173) Programmers and Interactive Media Developers (NOC 2174) Computer Engineers (NOC 2147) Web Designers and Developers (NOC 2175) Database Analysts and Data Administrators (NOC 2172) Computer and Information Systems Managers (NOC 0213)   NOC stands for National Occupational Classification, which determines the level and type of skill of a profession. OINP stated that the six occupations reflect current needs in Ontario and were selected following consultations with employers and other stakeholders in the province.   The Human Capital Priorities component does not require any job offers and has consistently encouraged Entry Express candidates to obtain insufficient CRS scores for an ITA at one of the federal government’s usual Entry Express draws.   PNU selected entry candidates will receive a notification of interest from UNP and will have 45 days to apply for a provincial Ontario application.   Upward appointments   Ontario receives an annual nomination allowance from the federal government’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP). Ontario’s allocation under the PNP has increased in each of the last six years to reach 6,900 for 2019.   Admissions of new permanent residents under the PNP are expected to continue to increase in 2020 and 2021, as will admissions in the three programs managed by the Express Entry system.   Overall, Canada could accommodate more than one million new arrivals by 2021.   “Ontario’s technology draws are an important innovation and a great opportunity for Quick Entry candidates,” said David Cohen, senior partner at Canadian law firm Campbell, Cohen, in Montreal.   “Ontario has shown its willingness to invite Entry Express candidates with lower scores through its Human Capital Priorities component, so we’ll be watching these tech draws closely to see if this continues. “ Read more »

  • 51% jump in Indian getting Canadian ‘green card’|
    MUMBAI: The interest of the Indian diaspora (including the US-based diaspora) in obtaining permanent residence in Canada continues unabated. In 2018, more than 39,500 Indian citizens obtained permanent resident status in Canada under the express entry system (this represents 43% of the total number).   According to recently released statistics, Canada has admitted more than 92,000 new permanent residents in 2018 through its rapid entry system, an increase of 41% over the previous year. Permanent residence is similar to a green card in the United States.   The year before, in 2017, Canada had admitted almost 65,500 permanent residents on the express access route, 40% of which, or 26,300, came from India. The number of Indian citizens who will be granted permanent resident status in 2018 has increased by 51% over 2017.   Interestingly, China, ranked second in 2017, slipped to third place with only 5,800 Chinese having permanent residence in 2018. Nigeria was in second place. The number of invitations sent to Chinese citizens showed negative growth. (See the table)   In previous editions, YOU explained how Indians working in the United States faced issues such as H-1B visa delays or refusals, green card arrears, or even the proposed revocation of the H-1B visa. right of H-1B wives to work, translates into a migratory flow to neighboring Canada.   People in India are also increasingly turning to Canada for employment or permanent employment. The Global Talent Stream, which had recently moved from pilot status to a permanent program, allows Canadian companies to hire expatriates with STEM training within two weeks. This should increase the number of Indian employees in Canada. In its April 10 edition, it was stated that GST workers could opt for permanent residence.   Express Entry is a system used by the Canadian government to manage permanent resident applications from skilled and qualified workers through three economic immigration programs.   As part of the Express Enrollment program, candidates complete an online profile and are placed in the Express Entries group and ranked against each other based on their scores in the Full Ranking System (CRS). CRS considers the existence of an offer of employment, its age, its training, its professional experience and its skills in English and French. Those who exceed the limit (1,200 maximum) are sent “invitations to apply” for permanent residence.   “The principal countries of citizenship based on those admitted to Canada generally reflect those of the invited candidates. Nearly half of those admitted in 2018 were Indian citizens, “said Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Canada’s immigration division, in its year-end report, Express Entry, recently released.   In 2018, 41,675 invitations (46% of the total) were sent to Indian citizens. In 2017, out of a total of 86,022 invitations, 36,308 or 42% were sent to Indians.   Express prints are organized periodically. The most recent took place on June 21, with a CRS threshold of 462 points and 3,350 candidates will be invited to become permanent residents.   Overall, Canada’s multi-year plan for immigration levels is committed to welcoming more permanent residents (including for humanitarian reasons) over a three-year period. It has set a target of 3.30 lakh for 2019 and 3.40 lakh for 2020. Read more »
