The Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is Canada’s top immigration body. It handles immigration concerns for the entire nation and sets the parameters by which applicants are assessed for eligibility for PR status. The IRCC established the Express Entry program to demystify the immigration process and make it much more transparent.

Since its inception, the Express Entry program has provided pivotal groundwork for the establishment of an unbiased skill-demand oriented system which is now considered among the best in the world. It enjoys this reputation because it has transformed the immigration system of Canada which had earlier been suffering immense skill shortage due to an obsolete immigration system.

The Express Entry program, in replacing the previous system, opened up all kinds of streams and pathways for entry of virtually every kind of skilled professional into Canada. The system is also regularly updated to keep it in line with the most immediate requirements of the national economy as well as in tow with the latest developments in the international immigration market. In the most recent updates made to the Express Entry system, there have been several changes which have been introduced to the program, which have now made immigration to Canada with a Permanent Resident (PR) visa even easier than before.

Major Announcements for the Express Entry Program


Arguably the most important development to in this year’s Express Entry program is the decision to provide extra points for the presence of family within Canada. If you already have close family which includes immediate family members like father, mother sister, brother etc. living in Canada, then you will receive an added benefit in your CRS score when making your application. This decision was made by the IRCC in order to foster a more comprehensive community of immigrants within its borders. Naturally, having family residing in Canada greatly increases the adaptability factor of applicants and virtually guarantees that they will become fulltime residents of the province/region. Thus, the IRCC has decided to foster these familial relations and give them extra points in the CRS.

Another important development in the most recent iteration of the Express Entry program is the decision to reward proficiency in French or English as a second language with extra points. Though the margins which have changed by this factor are not much in regard to the calculation of overall scores, yet they might as well be the deciding factor when it comes down to the wire. This development gives testimony to the skill oriented approach of the IRCC as it now wants individuals who can communicate in both languages thus cultivating a multilingual culture across all the sectors of its economy.
