Increase in Immigrants to Nova Scotia, Government Plans to Raise Settlement Funds

There has been an increase in the number of immigrants that are coming to Nova Scotia. It has caused a slight concern for the NDP as more funds are required to help new comers settle there.

The province needs to increase its funding in order to help new immigrants settle easily. The chief executive officer of the immigration office of the province, Julie Towers stated on Wednesday that in the first half of this year a total of 3,418 new immigrants have come to Nova Scotia. This number is slightly more than that of 2015.

A big share in this number is contributed by Syrian refugees, but Towers is of the view that the province will be able to achieve its annual target of having 7,000 new immigrants. It is done to compensate for the declining and aging population.

Towers added that one of main factor in achieving this target is whether Ottawa, which still controls the immigrants that coming to province, increases the present limit or not.

Lenore Zann, an NDP member of the legislature, stated that the small increase in budget will not be able to meet the demand for providing assistance to schools, language classes and job training. Settlement agencies have complained that the funds that are being provided are not sufficient to meet the demand.

The province of Nova Scotia needs more people to keep up with its current pace of development, but it has not been able to do so as enough funds are not able, Lenore confirmed.

The funds required for the resettlement of new immigrants has increased from around 3.4 million dollars for 2014 – 15 to 4.4 million dollars for the year 2016 – 17. Few hundred thousands are increased in the funding budget every year as the number of immigrants has also increased every year.

The government of Canada is aware about this shortcoming and it is taking steps to overcome the deficit. In the near future, this problem is planned to be sorted out and new immigrants in Nova Scotia will see a better future for them.

In case you want to immigrate to Canada and want to apply for Canada’s permanent residency visa, but have lot of confusion from where to start, than you can take the assistance of WWICS complaints cell.

Nova Scotia Gears Up to Accommodate Increased Immigration

Nova Scotia has seen an influx in the number of immigrants it has received this year. Although, there is a need for new immigrants in the province of Nova Scotia as the local population is aging fast, but this influx has caused concern for the authorities of the province. 

The NDP has raised the red flag that more funds will be required to help accommodate these new number of immigrants. Julia Towers, the chief executive officer of the province for immigration office, has stated that the province has received 3,418 new immigrants up till now this year. This number is slightly more than what was received in the year 2015.

A major portion in this immigration has been taken by Syrian refugees. Towers made it clear that the province wants to achieve its annual target of new immigrants i.e. of 7,000. Now, Ottawa controls the immigration to this province, so in order to achieve the target the annual limit will have to be increased.

The budget for the province is increased every year by few hundred thousand. In the year 2016 – 17, 4.4 million dollars were allocated for the province, which was more than the 3.4 million dollars allocated in the year 2014 – 15.

Restructuring efforts are being made to ensure smooth facilitation of funds and proper resettlement of new immigrants in Nova Scotia.

However, more money is required to be allocated each year to happily settle new immigrant and to keep up with the current rate of development.

Changes Recommended in Canada’s Temporary Foreign Workers Program

A House of Commons is given the task to review the foreign temporary worker program (TFWP) of Canada. A wide range of changes have been recommended to the current program, such as making it easier for temporary workers to become permanent residents of Canada.

It has also been made simple for businesses to respond to the needs of the labor market. The committee will also make changes to a regulation which makes it compulsory for a foreign worker under a work permit to work only with a specific employer.

Changes are asked to be made to this regulation as it leads to a abusive relationship and gives undue to power to the employer. As per the changes recommended, employers who will exhibit using the program in an appropriate manner will be put in a “trusted employer program”.

Soon after as the new report was published, the minister of immigration, John McCallum and the minister of employment, workforce development and labor, MaryAnn Mihychuk, stated that the new recommendations will be put into force within a time period of 120 days.

These changes were proposed by the present government when it took office last November. It is worth noting here that Liberal Party has a majority in the House of Commons and also in the committee. It was back in June 2014, that the last changes were made to the temporary foreign worker program (TFWP) by the Conservative government.

Changes Recommended to the TFWP

Labor Market Impact Assessment Application Fee

It was observed by the committee that the LMIA application fee of $1,000 was high for certain businesses, particularly the smaller ones. Paying for the fees is a financial burden for families who want to hire caregivers.

Making the Path Easy

The basic objective of making these recommendations is to make it easy for temporary workers to settle permanently in Canada and also to make it easy for Canadian employers to hire foreign workers on a temporary basis.

CRS Closes at New Record Low in Express Entry Draw on February 22

Dream of 3,611 aspiring immigrants is now fulfilled. This is the number of invitation that has been sent in the latest Express Entry draw, which was held on February 22. A new record was set by the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) cut off, which went down to 441.

This new threshold in the CRS points indicates that wide variety of applicants will now be able to apply for permanent residency of Canada. The latest cut off also indicates that candidates who only had educational qualification till graduation level, but has no study or work experience from Canada, along with no job offer or provincial nomination, also have the chance to be received an ITA.

Let us take a look at some scenarios to indicate how it is possible.
The first example is of 28 year old single applicant, Sean. He has a Bachelor’s Degree and advanced English ability. He does not have any post secondary education. He does not have any experience of working or studying in Canada, however, he has three years of skilled work experience abroad. He does not have a provincial nomination or job offer, but he was able to obtain 441 CRS points because of his other factors. 

This was good enough to receive the Invitation to Apply (ITA).

This considerable decrease in the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) has come after the recent improvements that were made to the Express Entry Immigration System which was implemented on November 19, 2016.

Among the various changes that were made, the number of points that were given to a candidate if he or she has a qualifying job offer has gone down from 600 points to 50 or 200 points, depending on the job offer a candidate has.

It was predicted by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) that a reduction of points to candidates with arranged employment means the CRS-cut off will decline.

The last few draws have shown that what IRCC had said is now becoming true.
Many provinces in Canada have been quite with their provincial nominee program (PNP) since mid-February. On February 14, Express Entry sub category was opened by Saskatchewan Skilled Worker Program to accept 500 new applications.

It should not surprise that the intake cap was reached within 24 hours of opening of the program. On February 17th British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BC PNP) opened up. It accepted 190 eligible students and skilled workers.

Most recently, Human Capital Priorities Stream was opened up by Ontario on February 21st.
It is high time to prepare in the right manner if you want to fulfill your dream to settle in Canada permanently.

Report Gives Insight in Express Entry Immigration System

The major portion of the Invitation to Apply (ITA) that were issued to Express Entry candidates to become the permanent resident of Canada were having a score below 450 points in the core Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).

It can be said to be the lowest cut-off threshold over the first two years of any draw in the Express Entry system. Moreover, more than 25% of the all the candidates that were invited had a score below 350 in the CRS. The core CRS score is the number of points obtained by a candidate without having the provincial nomination, an education in Canada or a job offer.

This analysis is one of the many that is done by the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) last week for the year end Express Entry report for 2016. Along with providing this valuable insight, the report also sends out a justification of the decision of the immigration department for making the changes in the Express Entry system since it was introduced first in January, 2015.

The Express Entry system has gained much more momentum than ever before since the time it was first launched. The current year of 2017 has been the quite extraordinary when we talk of the number of ITAs that have been issued. In the recent months there has been a significant decrease in the CRS cut-off thresholds.

What All Has Happened Till Now?

Through the latest release report we have come to know that:

·         The majority of the candidates that were invited in the year 2016 were having a score of 450 or below. This indicates this has been the lowest cut-off threshold in the past two years for any draw. A total of 33,782 candidates were invited last year, 18,778 candidates were having CRS score less than 450 points.

·         In the year 2015 and 2016, a total of 41,466 applications were submitted for permanent residency. When total number of people are counted than this number rises to 78,015, which means every application represented nearly 1.9 people.

·         In the first two years, a total of 183,009 eligible profiles were created. This means nearly 23% of the profiles were selected for permanent residency. Moreover, there has been a significant increase in the number of invitations issued in this year.
