1 Express Entry Update Conference Board Immigration Summit April 4, 2016 Jennifer Moores and Zal Karkaria

2 Objectives of Express Entry On January 1, 2015, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada launched Express Entry, an electronic application management system that applies to Canada s key economic immigration programs. Express Entry s objectives are to support: o Improved economic outcomes through the selection of the best candidates. o Responsiveness to labour market and regional needs. o Flexibility in selection and application management, resulting in improved processing times. Express Entry applies to: o o o o Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) Canadian Experience Class (CEC) A portion of the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) With a full year of Express Entry complete, the department is undertaking a review of the system to improve on areas where possible and align Express Entry with the Government of Canada s priorities, including the commitment to provide points to candidates with siblings. 2

3 Express Entry and 2016 Immigration Levels Canada will welcome between 280,000 and 305,000 (target 300,000) new permanent residents in As an application management system, Express Entry aligns the number of invitations to apply that the Department issues with the Annual Levels Plan Space for federal economic admissions also includes space for the processing of candidates who applied before Express Entry was launched (expected to be largely processed by the end of 2016) Economic Class programs will continue to account for more than half of all immigration admissions planned for Federal Economic - Express Entry Economic - Other Provincial Nominee Programs Family Class Refugees, Protected Persons, Humanitarian and Other 2016 Levels Targets Federal Economic Federal Skilled Workers, Federal Skilled Trades, Canadian Experience Class Admission range: 54, Target: 58,400 Economic Other Caregivers, Federal Business, Quebec Skilled Workers, Quebec Business Targets for 2016 (approximate) Total economic (Federal, PNP and other): 160,000 Total family: 80,000 Total refugees and humanitarian: 55,000

4 Express Entry: Selective Application Management Express Entry Pool EXPRESSION OF INTEREST Initial Profile Submission 1. MINIMUM ENTRY CRITERIA EE pool entry conditions 2. COMPREHENSIVE RANKING SYSTEM 3. INVITATION TO APPLY APPLICATION PROCESSING Express Entry introduces an element of competition in the economic class as only the highest ranked candidates are invited to apply for permanent residence: Potential candidates express their interest in immigrating to Canada by creating an online Express Entry profile at no cost. Those who meet the Minimum Entry Criteria for the Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker, or Federal Skilled Trades program are accepted into the Express Entry Pool (see Annex A for more detail). Candidates in the pool are assigned a score according to the Comprehensive Ranking System, a human capital based ranking system which also rewards a job offer or Provincial/Territorial nomination. Candidates with the highest rankings in the pool are invited to apply. Once invited, candidates have 60 days to submit their application which is processed by the Department in 6 months or less 1 1 For 80% of complete applications, once received by the department 4

5 # Invitations Issued CRS Score First Year of Express Entry 151,722 Express Entry profiles were submitted: 54% of profiles submitted were not accepted into the pool because they did not meet minimum entry criteria. An average of 1,800 new profiles were created each week. As of January 2016, over 57,500 active candidates were in the pool waiting for an invitation to apply. A total of 31,063 invitations were issued to foreign nationals: Mix of Provincial Nominees (14%), Federal Skilled Workers (42%), Federal Skilled Trades (8%) and Canadian Experience Class (36%) Just over 62% of candidates have claimed a job offer or a provincial or territorial nomination. Approximately 2% of invitations have gone to candidates who submitted a language test in French for their first official language. Almost 10,000 Express Entry candidates landed as permanent residents in 2015 As of March 9 th, there have been 8451 invitations issued in 6 rounds in Rounds of Invitations Invitations issued CRS cut off 5

6 Permanent Residence through Express Entry To date the Department has met the commitment to process 80% of applications within six months As of January 3, 2016, over 37,000 applications have been received from candidates Almost 10,000 Express Entry candidates landed in Canada in 2015 Permanent Resident Application Decisions and Admissions (reported in persons) Month Year Applications Received 1 Applications Rejected (Incomplete) 2 Applications Approved Applications Refused Approval Rate 3 CoPR Issued Admissions ,424 5,555(15%) 14,058 2, % 13,241 9,739 January February CoPR = Certificate of Permanent 0 Residence 0 March 2, % 41 2 April 4, % May 4, % June 2,465 1, % July 3, , % 1, August 4, , % 3,027 1,239 September 4, , % 3,677 1,677 October 4, , % 2,834 2, Applications received date is based on the earliest incoming document received date 2 - Application rejected (incomplete) rate is based on rejected / Application intake (received) 3 - Application approval rate is based on approved / (approved +refused) November 4, , % 914 2,233 December % 286 1,676 6

7 Express Entry Key Results To Date Candidates By Program When the candidate is invited to apply, they are invited to only one program subject to Express Entry. The system applies the hierarchy rule to determine which program the candidates is invited under if they qualify for more than one program. o In 2015 March 8, 2016: Provincial Nominee Program, Federal Skilled Worker Program, Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Trades Program. o As of March 9, 2016: Provincial Nominee Program, Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program. Candidates that have been nominated by a province or territory will only be invited to apply under the Provincial Nominee Program. 33 (0.1%) candidates qualify for FSW and FST 120 (0.2%) candidates qualify for CEC and FST 336 (0.6%) candidates qualify for FST 23 (less than 0.1%) candidates qualify for FSW, CEC, FST 11,657 (19.9%) candidates qualify for CEC 51,941 (88.7%) candidates qualify for FSW Data Source: GCMS (Answers), December 14, ,227 (8.9%) candidates qualify for FSW and CEC PNP = Provincial Nominee Program CEC = Canadian Experience Class FST = Federal Skilled Trades Program 7

8 Express Entry Key Results To Date Express Entry Pool and Score If Express Entry candidates meet the Minimum Entry Criteria, they receive a CRS score when they enter the pool. The table below show the CRS score distribution for all candidates in the pool (as of January 2016). In early 2016, 6% of all new eligible profiles had a CRS score greater than 600 and 57% of new profile submissions had a CRS score between Express Entry Pool By CRS Score Ranges Comprehensive Ranking System Score Number of candidates > , , , , , < Total 60,042 Data Source: GCMS (Answers), January 4,

9 Express Entry Key Results To Date Express Entry Pool and Score cont Candidates by CORE Comprehensive Ranking System score as of January 3, Active Candidates Invited Candidates without a job offer or provincial nomination Invited Candidates with a job offer or provincial nomination Core CRS of candidates with a job offer or a provincial nomination are, on average, lower that invited candidates without a job offer or nomination. Core CRS is the candidates score without the additional 600 points (their core human capital) Candidates invited to apply without a job offer or nomination (those in RED in the chart) have a high human capital score and represent an average of over 35% of all invitations issued <100 9

10 Who got an Invitation to Apply in Summary Invitations to Apply: Since January 1, 2015, rounds have typically occurred biweekly in the amount of 1,500 candidates. The Invitation to Apply threshold (CRS cut-off) has remained above 450 because of: o The number of invitations issued per round o The time interval between Invitation to Apply rounds o Candidates with provincial or territorial nominations and job offers, which both receive 600 points. Candidates were invited who had: Provincial nominations or Labour Market Impact Assessment-backed job offers. Those with job offers tended to be primarily IT professionals, scientists, or food service supervisors and chefs. Comprehensive Ranking System scores in upper 400s but below 600. Including: International Students well represented in pool, well positioned due to high education, official language proficiency, youth, and Canadian work experience. Candidates who submitted a French language test for their first official language Currently only 1% of pool but represents 2% of invitees. University Professors among top 10 NOCs of invited candidates. Share of invited candidates is equivalent to share of candidates in the Express Entry pool. 10

11 Invited Candidates by Occupation Food Service Supervisors (NOC 6311) or Cooks (NOC 6322) were the largest group of invited candidates in 2015 followed by Professional occupations in natural and applied sciences (NOC 21). University Professors are among top 10 NOCs of invited candidates; their share of invited candidates is equivalent to share of candidates in the Express Entry pool.

Hence, 28,318 unique candidates have received invitations. EE = Express Entry PNP = Provincial Nominee Program CEC = Canadian Experience Class FST = Federal Skilled Trades Program 12

13 International Students IRCC is currently examining the Express Entry system and the implications for international students The comprehensive ranking system is generally favourable to former international students and post-graduate work permit holders Former students are typically awarded high points for education, Canadian work experience, strong official language skills and youth. Express Entry candidates in the pool who have previously held a study permit have a higher median Comprehensive Ranking System score (408) compared to others in the pool (360)* In general, proportionally more Express Entry candidates that have been Invited to Apply (22%) have study experience in Canada in comparison to those in the pool (13%)* Number of candidates in the pool who have ever been in possession of a study permit by category* Number of invited candidates who have ever been in possession of a study permit* Ever been in possession of a study permit EE Category Yes No Total # % # % PNP FSW CEC FST Total Ever been in possession of a study permit EE status Yes No Total # % # % PNP FSW CEC FST Total *Data as of November 23, 2015 EE = Express Entry PNP = Provincial Nominee Program CEC = Canadian Experience Class FST = Federal Skilled Trades Program 13

14 Employer Liaison Network Provide Canadian employers and potential clients with useful and up-to-date information Increase awareness Facilitate linkages between Canadian employers and skilled labour overseas Coordinate the immigration promotion and recruitment activities of Canadian diplomatic offices overseas with the labour needs of employers in Canada. The Employer Liaison Network participated in 124 events across Canada between April 1, 2015 and January 31 st Besides employers, the ELN has engaged with international students, chambers of commerce, settlement organizations, francophone stakeholders, economic development officers and municipalities. 14

16 Classification (le cas échéant) What are we hearing from you? Happy to see that IRCC is engaging with the public. Broad acceptance of the Express Entry model. Appreciation for the 6 month processing time. Interested to hear about recruiting labour abroad. But... The LMIA process is challenging. Technical issues with the representative s portal are frustrating. Concerns that good candidates are not being invited to apply. 16

17 What s Ahead? Now that the first year of Express Entry is complete, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is undertaking a review of the system o Course correction will continue over time as we: gather data on the system, and receive feedback from partners, stakeholders, provinces and territories, and clients. Some outcomes (such as processing times and approval rates) are relatively simple to monitor in real time, but others (such as economic outcomes) will take longer to measure. In the meantime, early results monitoring has yielded some areas for future work In particular, the department will further examine the points for a job offer, job offer requirements, and whether Express Entry can contribute to official languages and family reunification objectives The department could also explore other client service elements such as, the provincial and territorial Portal, and reviewing processes and requirements (medicals and police certificates) Views? Feedback? 17
