Nicholas Keung, The Toronto Star's immigration reporter, filed this story related to the federal government's "Expression of Interest" program:

Ottawa’s new skilled immigrant selection system must process applicants within two months if Canada hopes to outbid other countries in attracting the world’s best and brightest, warns a new report by the Ontario Chamber of Commerce.

Immigration Minister Chris Alexander is set to launch the brand new “Expression of Interest” processing system (EOI) in early 2015 to replace the decades-old “first-in, first-out” mechanism for the federal skilled workers program.

Although Alexander says the system could shorten processing time down to six months, the report points out that comparable systems, such as Australia’s, take as little as 58 days to bring in skilled immigrants.

  1. Excellent book regarding the details about federal skilled workers in Canada. Each year Canada welcomes many immigrants to their Country. This book helps the applicants to understand the requirements required for immigration, common issues and problems and the cost and hurdles they come across. It also deals about how to apply, the pros and cons of using an immigration representative.
