The Government of Canada implemented new rule changes benefiting the faster processing of an application for Permanent Residence in Canada. An internal survey of the Canadian Government has observed that newly arrived Permanent Residents who have siblings in Canada and/or having higher skills in French language tend to settle more quickly in Canada & help in developing it economy. Keeping this factor in mind the new rules have been implemented.
Effective from June 6, 2017 the Government will be awarding additional points for applicants with siblings in Canada. Having family members helps the migrants in quickly settling in a new country. It also helps in reducing the extra financial burden, if any, on the Government if in case the newly landed Permanent Residents are having problems in settling. Any applicants having either brother or sister, as a Permanent Resident or Citizen of Canada, can claim additional 15 points in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) of the Express Entry.
Another major benefit is for applicants having strong language skills in French and/or English. French being the second official language of Canada, it is beneficial for early integration in the Canadian culture & job market. Applicants with proficiency only in the French language and a score of 7 in the Niveaux de Compétence Linguistique Canadiens test, will be able to claim 15 points. Applicants with French language score of 7 & IELTS score of Canadian Level Benchmark (CLB) 5 will be able to claim 30 points in the CRS.
Also, the mandatory requirements for the Job Bank registration for intending Permanent Residents are removed as the Employers in Canada have been given direct access to the profiles of the candidates in the Express Entry Pool. Any employer who finds the profile suitable may offer a Job which will help in expediting the application processing.
People are encouraged to make the most of the new rule changes & plan an early decision of moving to Canada. To know more visit our website apexvisas.com
