Canada has just announced the expansion of employment opportunities by 80,000 jobs. However, there are not enough skilled workers in the country to fill all these gaps in the labor market. This is the very reason why the Express Entry program was established in 2015. Through this program, the applications of eligible candidates who want to move to Canada are fast-tracked. The applicants who have the necessary skills and experience to fill gaps in the Canadian labor market could find themselves working and living in Canada in as little as 6 months!
Who Are These Jobs For?
Eligibility for the Express Entry Program is subject to change and is dependent on the individual situation of the applicant, but there is a general list of eligibility criteria for everyone in the Express Entry pool. This list includes but is not limited to age, level of education, occupation and experience in the designated profession, language proficiency in both English and French, as well as the likelihood of adapting to Canadian society following immigration.
Millions of people have chosen Canada as their new home over the years. It’s not hard to see why, as it is a country that has so much to offer. Aside from the wealth of job opportunities, Canada also has free healthcare and education for all its citizens. It is a country that invests in the wellbeing of its youth, reflected in the policies that make over the counter and prescription medication free to those under the age of 25 and in the fact that education is covered by the government right through to secondary school.
In addition to government-subsidized education and healthcare, Canada offers a superb quality of life. With one of the highest minimum wages in the world, it’s citizens can actually enjoy everything that Canada has to offer. This ranges from a society that is rich in arts and culture to panoramic landscapes that every nature lover dreams of.
One of the most important things to know about Canada, when making the decision to move there is the fact that it is so tolerant and accommodating of immigrants. Multiculturalism is at the core of Canadain society and is reflected in its communities, key positions in government (The minister of immigration is Somali) and in policies like Express Entry and the Provincial Nominee Programs which encourage and facilitate the immigration of foreign nationals to Canada.
