Immigrating to Canada under the Express Entry system is set to change. Here’s all you need to know

As soon as Bill C19 receives royal assent, several changes will be made to Canada’s Express Entry system. The Comprehensive Ranking System that is used to evaluate and rank individuals in the pool will be altered as a result of these new amendments.

Groupings will be established under this new system based on economic objectives, factors like employment and academic experience, or proficiency in English or French. In addition, candidates will be invited based on the Immigration minister’s “groupings.” This bill’s primary objective is to address Canada’s demographic and labor market requirements.

 Express Entry system

The in-depth explanation of what will change in Bill C-19 Amendments to the Express Entry System can be found below:

1) Picking based on new categories and groups

Ministerial directives will be included in the new bill to add additional Express Entry System filters based on groups and categories rather than just immigration class. It will be the basis for the subsequent rounds of invitations.

2) Invitations to Apply for PR with specific categories of eligibility.

New categories with eligibility requirements for ranking will be created once the bill becomes law. The invitation ought to specify the categories for which the foreign national must apply if they qualify for more than one.

3) Specific financial objectives for each category

The Minister will now be required by the new bill to specify the economic objective that the newly established category will support in the instruction.

4) Applicants with age-related points deductions can now receive PR.

Candidates who have been invited to apply but would otherwise have lost eligibility due to changes in their circumstances are eligible for Express Entry permanent residence visas thanks to the new bill’s exclusions.

For instance, the visa will now be granted to a candidate who has aged and lost points or qualifications but maintained the minimum score required to rank in the invitation round.

5) Foreign nationals will be categorized in the minister’s report.

The amendment adds that the instructions to create any Express Entry category for foreign nationals must be included in the Minister’s annual report to Parliament. The economic objective it supports and the number of invitations issued in this category should be included in these instructions.

Under Bill C-19 in 2023, Express Entry, which includes the Canadian Experience Class, the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, and a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program, will undergo changes.

In the coming months, additional information regarding the C-19 Bill, including its precise categories and eligibility, will be made available.
