First the good news. In 2019, employment in the technology sector were most in demand, with software developers and designers, topping the list of those issued invites for permanent residence in Canada Express.
As reported by TOI earlierThe Indians took 40,275 invites you to apply for permanent residence in Canada on this route. This is 47% of the total invites 85,300 issued under the system entry Express in 2019. A fair share of these citizens of India included those who are already working in Canada or the migration of us.
Express entry is a point mechanism used by the government of Canada to manage applications from experienced and skilled workers for permanent residence through the three economic immigration programs. It’s a Federal qualified specialists The Canadian Experience and Federal skilled trades. Permanent residence permit is a temporary work visa, but it is akin to a green card, the United States gives the right to live, work or study anywhere in Canada. It also provides efficient path to obtaining canadian citizenship.
March 12, a few days before Canada closed their borders, Marco MendicinoImmigration Minister of Canada, presented the plans level of immigration for three years, starting in 2020. The goal of the canadian government was responsible to grow the number of permanent residents (including via the Express Entry route) made in Canada every year from 3.41 lakh in 2020 to 3.51 lakh in 2021, and around it, with the aim of 3.61 lakh in 2022.
In the first half of 2020 is over – pandemic and as a result, the travel ban might make achieving this goal difficult, if not impossible.
Under the system of Express entry, candidates will complete an online questionnaire, they are then entered in a database and are ranked by the sum of points in accordance with the comprehensive ranking system (CRS). These meetings cut the result in each draw, which are held periodically, are invited for permanent residence.
“Until June 25, was 21 Express entry draws. More invitations to the interview (As) was released this year, compared with the same period last year. This year 49,900 of ITAS were issued in the first half of 2020, and 2019 saw 41,800 of ITAS issued in the mid-year point,” says David Cohen, Montreal, senior partner Campbell Cohenand immigration law firm.
Alberta based Ken Nickel-lane, founder and managing Director of the immigration firm told TOI, “after the lock we saw only Express entry draws on the canadian experience class (CEC) and provincial nominee programs (PNP) and I don’t expect this trend to change anytime soon. Our borders remain closed, except those deemed ‘most important travelers and certain categories of exemption, with the recent addition of family members.”
In Ontario, Canada Talha Mohani, managing Director at migration Bureau Corp., agrees. “The ICRC determines how many Express entry candidates are invited for permanent residence through a system of rounds of invitations. From mid-March 2020 so far, tells IRCC only published program-specific round of invitations for the categories of the CEC and PNPs. It is obvious that candidates who have graduated from a canadian education or work experience in Canada in accordance with these categories was that they gave the ‘invitation to apply (ITA), he States. If the current trend continues in the coming months, Mohani KSB expects the result continues to fall. To illustrate, the draw of the CEC on June 11, was cut off a score of 437.
CEC and PNP candidates already largely in Canada and less likely to be affected by restrictions on international travel. Candidates of the CEC are required to have at least one year of experience in Canada, to meet the language requirements and be a resident outside the province of Quebec. Some PNPs require past experience in this province or skill with the educational institution in the province.
However, Cohen said: “these lottery not only help people in Canada, because people abroad are among those currently offered (for example, when the Express Entry associated PNP draws). Once coronavirus travel restrictions were in vain, these people will be able to complete their ongoing process landing permit in Canada.”
The ICRC has not indicated when it draws for other classes such as Federal skilled specialists will begin. In 2019, 45% of the total prompts in the recording system Express were under Federal skilled workers.
Now according to statistics the number of permanent arrivals show a sharp drop in numbers. According to the ICRC, in the first three months 2020, the number of permanent resident arrivals were 69,785. Given the ban on travel, which began in mid-March, this figure dropped to only 4,140 in April (against 26,900 in April of last year).
Cohen sounds an optimistic note, “we should not exclude the possibility that Canada invites candidates abroad (e.g. Federal skilled workers) in the second half of 2020.” Experts believe that with the professional skills that the Indians (including h-1Bs) and a large number of Indian students (many of whom later opt for permanent residence), the Indians will remain the leading source of immigrant talent.
What does the future hold?
Mohani refers to the report published by the information and communications technology Council, which under moderate growth scenarios, the estimated demand for more digital 3.05 crore skilled workers by 2023.
In the same report adds: workers born outside of Canada are a very important source of employment for all sectors in Canada, and especially for the digital economy. In 2009, approximately 30% of workers information and communication technology (ICT) the roles of foreign origin. Today, two out of five employees in the roles of ICT were born outside of Canada. In 2018, 30% of workers in the development of the business the role of Manager of the foreign-born. It increases by almost 50% according to analysts, system analysts, or cyber security, and over 70% for software developers.
Clearly pandemic is likely to dent the ICT sector, but the tightening of immigration policy in the U.S., can tip the scales in favor of the canadian economy – both from the point of view of many more H-1B workers wishing to migrate to Canada and establishing or expanding their canadian operations.
The entrepreneur Vikram Rangnekar, who founded the platform mova North to join the global software talent is the top tech companies in Canada says, “while local startups may not be able to cover everything or to pay the expected price, the big boys like Shopify, Google, AWS and Microsoft are expanding to support this influx of talent. In addition, many companies in the valley like Coursera, asana, Instacart, to name a few, using all the benefits of Canada by opening and expanding in Canada. Plus, residents can work remotely for an American company from Canada is already happening”.
Nickel lane adds: “For me, this is where the real potential of Canada lies the possibility of placing those companies seeking to expand in North America, and turned his attention to Canada as the primary or start node. Considering how well we in the country continue to open their doors in this region the US continues to close them, I also wouldn’t be surprised to see our programmes are further simplified to expedite our ability to use the newly The decree adopted by the President of the United States”.
“Canada will be equipped with more technological talent through the Express entry and temporary ways, such as The Global Flow Of Talent. Cities like Halifax, Montreal, Kitchener-Waterloo, Toronto, Ottawa, calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and vibrant tech scene and received international recognition in the result,” concludes Cohen.
