What this means for candidates
It is expected that the majority of applicants to be issued (ITA’s) under Canada’s Express Entry Immigration system in 2015, will require a CRS score of less than 600 points, enabling many applicants permanent admission to Canada without a job offer or nomination under a provincial immigration program. However a hiring sponsor employer will provide candidates with an additional 600 points towards their CRS overall score.
We provide all our candidate clients with search consulting assistance to maximize their chances of identifying a hiring sponsor employer.
