Introduced by Citizenship and Immigration Canada in January 2015 Express Entry seeks to enhance the responsiveness of Canada’s immigration system. This webinar will discuss Express Entry’s implications for employers, immigrants, and Canada.

Webinar Highlights

Join Citizenship and Immigration Canada for this 60 minute overview of the Express Entry system. You’ll hear an explanation of its main objectives including: addressing labour shortages; filling jobs where no Canadians are available; easier job matching between employers and immigrants; back-log prevention; and processing service standards of less than six months.

This session will answer such questions as:

  • What is express entry and how does it work?
  • Why is it different from other entry methods?
  • How will Employers, Immigrants and Canada benefit from Express Entry?
  • How can employers engage with the system to fill labour market shortages permanently with skilled immigrants?
