New score system for immigration to Quebec launched

The candidates wishing to migrate to Quebec but are willing to settle outside Montreal will be given extra points in the new Quebec’s scoring system.

The new points system has been launched in the Arrima expression of interest pool to rank the candidates.

The total maximum points available are 1,320, out of which 580 are for human capital, and 740 are for Quebec’s labour market needs.

The biggest PNP-only draw ever

Canada invited 940 candidates through Express Entry draw on June 9, 2021. These candidates can now apply for Permanent Residence as they received a provincial nomination through respective PNP. This is the reason the score cut off was as high as 711.

When receiving a nomination from one of the Provinces, aspiring migrators who have submitted their profiles in the Express Entry Pool are awarded 600 additional points. As candidates having 111 points or above, have been receiving Invitation to Apply (ITA), a nomination which adds 600 points under PNP ensures that the nominated candidate will be receiving Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence in the succeeding express entry draw.

Ontario recently released its allocation for this year as Canada invites aspiring migrators to settle in the country through various programmes and support a large number of permanent residency applications via PNPs.

Ontario will be issuing 8,350 nominations, excluding 250 specifically for temporary foreign workers employed in a profession falling under NOC skill level C.

Canada Calling Health-Care Professionals

Healthcare workers looking for permanent residency in Canada, the chances are quite bright. The country has thousands of job posts vacant in the healthcare industry, especially amid the Coronavirus pandemic.  

Canadian immigration industry is widely affected due to the absence of international documentation acknowledgment, specifically in the healthcare sector. Canada is thus, witnessing a crunch of well-qualified and expert healthcare workers.

BC PNP Tech Pilot Program to be continued as a Permanent Program

As British Columbia’s Tech pilot project was set to run until June, the province announced that it will be extended indefinitely.

The Program was introduced in May 2017, and last year it was extended for 1 year. Its extension will expire on June 30, 2021. The Program will then be renamed BC PNP Tech, and it is set to be continued as a permanent, fast-track immigration pathway for international workers and students.
