Hopes High for Express Entry Programme in 2018 | Canada Express Entry Program
Air is thick with positive anticipation and a great deal of hope seems to be riding on the Express Entry Programme in 2018, given the programme’s performances so far, and the Canadian Government’s ambitious immigration plans for the future.
Yes, as per some observers and the performance of the Express Entry Programme over the previous couple of years, the Express Entry Programme in 2018 would be something to look forward to, and it is expected that it would bring a great deal of joy for those interested to use the EE tool, to make the cut for the prized and the much sought after Permanent Resident Visa (PRV).
As it is too well known, Canada Express Entry Programme is one visa programme that has completely ignited the imagination of all would-be migrants and given wings to the concerned Canadian immigration authorities and made them more ambitious.
Since its official launch in 2015, the programme has done wonders to the way the intake process of the global skilled migrants is done by the Maple Leaf Country even as the best and the brightest, from across the globe, have been heading to the Maple Leaf Country, to leave a mark on the international stage, and become a permanent resident in this highly developed global economy.
Now the question that comes is what and how will be the Express Entry Programme in 2018?
Well, going by the past records, and the constantly increasing number of the Invitations to Apply (ITAs) given and the nose-diving requirements for the CRS score, one can safely believe that in 2018, the Express Entry Programme will give better results even as the way to the overseas hotspot will be paved further for the skilled and ambitious migrants, interested in Canada immigration.
As per certain information that we have on the subject of Express Entry Programme in 2018, Ottawa is keen to accept 340,000 new immigrants per annum for the coming three years. The Canadian federal officials are keen to have, by 2020, a rise of 13% in the general immigration figures.
Apart from filling the labour requirements, Ottawa must, allegedly, boost the figure of the immigrants, to stop an economic and economic breakdown presented by its ageing people and low rate of birth.
No wonder, the Maple Leaf Country is interested to invest more in its different economic plans perfectly tailored to welcome trained workers and improve its economy. Hence, from the total figure of the new permanent residents, anticipated for the next years, the administration, reportedly, wants to proffer 565,000 positions for its economic schemes, like the EE and the Provincial Nominee Programmes (PNPs).
While for the preceding year, 2017, Canada goal was to admit 71,700 newcomers, through its Express Entry Programme, minus counting the Atlantic Immigration Pilot Programme figures; for the current year, 2018, a 4% jump is expected, bringing 74,900 newcomers, via the online programme. By 2019, the goal will be 81,400, and in the next year, the same will become 85,800. The said figures represent, in that order, 9 and 5% of growth.
Since 2017 got even more newcomers than anticipated, it may, allegedly, be a positive development for those keen to shift to the hotspot this year and the next couple of years. Particularly because the administration is interested to boost the immigration figures, or it tends to make the draws for Express Entry more regular, or it tends to make the bare minimum CRS score even lower or both, since the goal is presently very pushy.
Summing-up, since the time seems to be opportune and the winds blowing in the favor of the Canada immigration motivated aspirants, Express Entry Programme in 2018 will be something keenly watched and vigorously used. Don’t miss the ride!
Now let’s bust a popular Express Entry myth!
Myth: Anybody may make an entry into the Express Entry Pool
Fact: It’s not correct, as only those aspirants–who have the necessary qualifications for Canada immigration, through one of these federal economic immigration schemes, namely, the Federal Skilled Trades Programme (FSTP), the Federal Skilled Worker Programme (FSWP), and the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and some Provincial Nominee Programmes (PNPs)–can gain admission.
