In the wake of these changes, Attorney David Cohen is holding an exclusive free webinar on the topic of the revised system, and how potential immigrants to Canada can take advantage of the improvements that have been made.

The Changes to Express Entry: A Summary

The improvements to the Express Entry system include a reform of the allocation of points in certain areas under the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), and an extension of the time period during which a candidate may submit an application after receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA). Some of the highlights of these changes include:

  • A reform of the allocation of points for a qualifying job offer, from 600 points to 200 or 50 points, depending on the position;
  • The introduction of points for a qualifying job offer for certain candidates working in Canada on an LMIA-exempt, employer-specific (closed) work permit;
  • The introduction of additional points for eligible candidates who have completed a Canadian post-secondary educational in Canada; and,
  • The extension of the submission deadline after receiving an ITA, from 60 days to 90 days.

For more information on how the new points for Canadian education may improve the pathway to Canadian permanent residence for current and potential international students, please consult Attorney David Cohen’s article for the WES Student Advisor blog.
