The Canadian government has revealed the details of Express entry immigration points system for the first time, which will be used to pick the eligible and talented foreign employees.

The government assures that the new Canada immigration system will bring in diligent immigrants to Canada within a period of six months or less.

Effective 1 January 2015, the profiles of skilled immigrants will be matched with the available jobs, where there are no existing Canadian skilled employees. Applicants will be placed in to the pool, after the online application process and enrollment with the Canadian job bank.  Only the highest points scoring applicants will be offered with a permanent residency. Skilled immigrants holding a permanent job offer from a Canadian employer or nominated by province or territory will be given a maximum of 600 points.

The Canada citizenship and immigration minister, Chris Alexander, has said that the first draw for permanent residency applications will be scheduled in the last week of January.

A maximum of 1,200 points will be awarded to the skilled immigrants depending on the factors in two different categories. In the first category immigrants are awarded up to 500 points for the core factors such as language proficiency, work experience in Canada, age and education level. In the other category immigrants are allotted up to 100 points for skill transferability factors such as credential in the trades, overseas work experience and combination of education level.

For immigrants age a maximum of 110 points will be awarded. Immigrants aged 20 to 29 will be awarded with highest points in this category, likewise, an individual with a degree equivalent of a PhD will get a maximum of 150 points. And applicants with high school diploma or its equivalent will only get 30 points.

The government of Canada in a press meet said that around 65,000 to 75,000 skilled employees will be granted with permanent residency in 2015 in any of the three skilled immigration programs.

Around 47,000 to 51,000 applications will be received through federal skilled worker class and the federal skilled trades class. And around 21,000 to 23,000 applications will come through the Canadian experience class.

Additionally, 46,000 to 48,000 skilled employees will be offered with permanent residency by means of provincial nominee program under Canada express entry system.

Successfully selected applicants will have to produce a proof of adequate funds to support themselves and their family members. Applicants should also undergo security and health checks.
