Canada will resume Express Entry applications for highly skilled workers in the “near term,” according to the ‘IMMIGRATION MINISTER’

Immigration Minister Sean Fraser’s talk about the future of Express Entry is emphasized.

When asked when the Canadian Experience Class (CEC) draws will restart, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser indicated they would resume “in the short future” and that he was looking into ways to make the Express Entry system more flexible.

Fraser had a conversation about Canadian immigration with Goldy Hyder, president and CEO of the Business Council of Canada. On February 16, the event was aired live on the Canadian Club Toronto website.

While the immigration minister stated that no date has been set for CEC draws to resume, he did imply that they would resume “shortly” and that Express Entry would begin to seem more normal in the coming years.

“We do need to resume federal skilled worker applications in the near future,” Fraser said. “If you look at the immigration levels plan over the next several years, the balance is moving back, and by year three… a record number of federal skilled workers will be welcomed to Canada, including through the Canadian Experience Class.”

By no means am I implying that — in my opinion — one of the most successful immigration schemes in the world will be abandoned.”

Fraser also indicated that he would want to see the Express Entry system become more flexible. Express Entry, he suggested, could be used to meet short-term needs such as welcoming people into smaller communities, high-demand sectors, and “people who are coming from a particular region that has the kind of educational institutions that will train the workers we need in strategically important sectors.”

“I’m personally digging into building this flexibility into the Express Entry system right now because I think it’ll help us to adapt in a more fluid way when we see the rate of transition only rising over time,” Fraser said.
