  • Canada Immigration:'in demand' immigrants can get into Canada within 6 months

    With one month left to the launch of a new immigration system that will give skilled immigrants express entry into Canada, the government has made public for the first time the details of the points system it will use to select foreign workers.

    While the government is promising the new system will have "in demand" immigrants in Canada within six months, critics have expressed concerns about express entry being akin to a job bank serving government and industry.

    Immigration express entry: 5 things you need to know

    A coalition of food, retail and tourism industry groups is calling on the government to give entry-level temporary foreign workers the same quick access that skilled immigrants will get under a new system known as express entry.

    Starting Jan. 1, the Canadian government will fast track permanent residency for skilled immigrants who will be matched with jobs that can't be filled by Canadians.

      Apprenticeship ad's claim of skilled trades shortfall open to question

      A government ad to promote the new Canada apprentice loan program claims the Canadian economy will need "one million skilled tradesmen and women" over the next decade.

      But independent forecasts and even the government's own projections tell a different story.

      The government pointed CBC News to "a combination of industry estimates," several of which were written by Rick Miner, the president of Miner & Miner Ltd., a management consulting firm specializing in labour market issues.

      Miner concluded that Canada will face a "major problem" with skilled worker shortages if nothing changes over the next 16 years.
