World’s top graduates are eligible for the new visa without any job offer

UK launches new visa for world's top graduates - No need of job offer (1)

Main Features:

  • A new route for the graduates from the world’s most renowned universities
  • The High Potential Individual (HPI) visa targets to attract the graduates from the high-skilled foreign universities
  • A fascinating category under the post-Brexit points-based system is focused on attracting the finest talent
  • The U.K. to become an influential international hub through the new visa scheme
  • Top most in-demand occupations in the UK in 2022
  • The U.K. government states that the new visa scheme is a part of the constant changes applied to the immigration system
  • Global Business Mobility is a new route that simplifies different ways to allow the businesses to enlarge

Overview:

“A highly potential, new individual route is expected to make the process easier for the individuals who are internationally mobile and who have a considerable potential to enter the U.K., as it will allow those who have shown their potential through academic achievement to arrive in the U.K. without a job offer,” stated Kevin Foster, the Immigration Minister of the U.K.

A new pathway to enter the U.K.

The graduates from the world’s most renowned universities have a new pathway to enter the United Kingdom, awarded within five years of application.

The High Potential Individual (HPI) visa targets attract graduates from high-skilled foreign universities. Based on their degree level, the graduates will be permitted to stay and work in the U.K. for two to three years.

 The applicants need not require a job offer or sponsorship, and the visa holders are allowed to enter the U.K. to work. They will be eligible to switch to other long-term employment visas if they meet the requirements.

A fascinating category under the post-Brexit points-based system is focused on attracting the finest talent worldwide, regardless of nationality, said the Indian-origin UK Cabinet Ministers Rishi Sunak and Priti Patel in a joint announcement.

A two-year work visa will be provided to the applicants and a three-year visa to individuals with Ph.D. without a necessary job offer.

The U.K. to become an influential international hub for innovation

The U.K. will see growth as an influential international hub through the new visa route for entrepreneurship, creativity, and innovation. Some of the most pioneering start-ups have considered the U.K. their home country.

It is believed that the businesses of tomorrow are to be built here today, and it is suggested that the students need to take full advantage of this extraordinary opportunity to shape their careers.

 The U.K. government states that the new visa scheme is a part of the constant changes applied to the immigration system of the country after leaving the European Union (E.U.) and permits visas to the individuals depending on the skills that they have to offer and the contribution they can make regardless of where they come from.

Global Business Mobility is a newly opened route in April this year that improves and simplifies different routes to allow the businesses to enlarge.

The Scale-up visa route targets promoting the businesses in talent recruitment by allowing them to invite employees to the U.K. later this year.

16 new occupations added to Canada Express Entry NOC list

16 new occupations added to Canada Express Entry NOC list (2)

Overview:

The redevelopment of Canada’s National Occupational Classification (NOC) system will lead to 16 new occupations becoming eligible for the Express Entry System.

Main Features:

  • IRCC will complete the process from NOC 2016 to NOC 2021 in November 2022
  • Occupations qualify for Express Entry from Skill Level B and above
  • The new additions will have an effect on Atlantic Immigration Program
  • Further changes in the Express Entry System to happen

*Check your eligibility for Canada through Canada Immigration Points Calculator for free.

According to the ministerial memorandum, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will complete the process of transition from NOC 2016 to NOC 2021 in November 2022.

The system will shift from the present skill level-based classification to a new Training, Education, Experience, and Responsibilities (TEER ) classification.

The occupations qualify for Express Entry from Skill Level B and above, using the NOC 2016, which it allows under the NOC 2021 and TEER 3.

Below are the occupations that will be added:

New occupations NOC code
Payroll administrators 1432
Dental Assistants and Dental Laboratory Assistants 3223
Nurse aides, orderlies and patient service associates 3413
Pharmacy technical assistants and pharmacy assistants 33103
Elementary and secondary school teacher assistants 4413
Sheriffs and bailiffs 4421
Correctional service officers 4422
By-law enforcement and other regulatory officers 4423
Estheticians, electrologists and related occupations 6562
Residential and commercial installers and servicers 7441
Pest controllers and fumigators 7444
Other repairers and servicers 7445
Transport truck drivers 7511
Bus drivers, subway operators and other transit operators 7512
Heavy equipment operators 7521
Aircraft assemblers and aircraft assembly inspectors 9521

However, three other occupations that are eligible for Express Entry under NOC 2016 will become ineligible under NOC 2021. Those occupations are:

  • Program leaders and instructors in recreation, sport, and fitness
  • Other performers
  • Tailors, furriers, milliners, and dressmakers

For more information, check out the Y-Axis blog page…

Atlantic Immigration Program

As a part of the NOC 2016 to NOC 2021, the available occupations under the Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP) will also be affected. The AIP is an employer-led program that is designed to invite new skilled immigrants to the provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward, New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, and Prince Edward Island.

It is presently available to the occupations at Skill Level C or above within NOC 2016. It will be available under the NOC 2021 to TEER 4 or above occupations.

Accordingly, the occupations mentioned below will become ineligible:

  • Longshore workers
  • Taxi and limousine drivers and chauffeurs
  • Delivery service drivers and door-to-door distributors
  • Material handlers
  • Other support occupations in personal services
  • Livestock laborers
  • Nursery and greenhouse laborers
  • Trappers and hunters
  • Food and beverage servers
  • Laborers in textile processing and cutting.
  • Boat and cable ferry operators and related occupations

Further changes in Express Entry 

The significant changes made in the Express Entry will permit the occupation-based invitations that have been defined in amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act proposed by IRCC.

It gives power to the minister to identify a particular economic goal and welcome the candidates who would help meet the goal, depending on the factors such as education, language skills, or work experience.

This would make it possible to conduct the draws targeting specific National Occupational Classification (NOC) codes.

Philip Somogyvari, the Director-General, Strategic Policy and Planning at IRCC, recently attended a standing committee meeting on the Citizenship and Immigration to answer the questions on the proposed changes.

A particular category would be established through the ministerial instructions, similar to the regularly conducted draws through Express Entry.

Despite that, the currently present regulations only allow the draws to specifically target the immigration programs, including Federal Skilled Work Program, the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Federal Skilled Trades Program, and the Provincial Nominee Program.

Canada with a record high of 1 million job vacancies in the first quarter of 2022

Canada with a record high of 1 million job vacancies in the first quarter of 2022

Canada has a million job vacancies to fill as on April 2022 (1)

Overview:

According to Canadian Statistics, the job vacancies in Canada have increased to a new record, and there were more paid jobs in all ten provinces of Canada except two in the month of March.

Main Features:

  • The job vacancy rate stood at 5.9 percent, which was similar to the record in September 2021
  • As for payroll employment, the Survey of Employment, Payroll and Hours (SEPH) has increased by 118,100 for the employees receiving pay and benefits
  • Even before the pandemic, 9,600 job opportunities were listed in the retail sector in March 2020
  • Inviting job opportunities while relaxing the pandemic restrictions
  • Quebec’s hospitality sector has soared with 20,400 new paid jobs in food services and accommodation in March 2022
  • New opportunities for retail jobs in March
  • TFWP and IMP are the two main ways to hire Foreign Nationals

 *Check your eligibility for Canada through Canada Immigration Points Calculator for free.

The job vacancies have increased by 22.6 percent, with more than 186,400 vacancies in March. Up to 60.5 percent of 382,000 positions were vacant in the same month last year.

The job vacancy rate provides an estimated number of all the vacant jobs divided by all the job opportunities in Canada. The job vacancy rate stood at 5.9 percent in March, which held the same record high in September 2021.

Inviting job opportunities while relaxing the pandemic restrictions

The demographic and statistical services agency promotes the increase in paid employment in Canada to relax the pandemic restrictions.

“The number of employees who are receiving benefits or pay from their employer, that is measured by the Survey of Employment, Payroll and Hours (SEPH) as a payroll employment, have increased by 118,100 (0.7 percent) in March 2022,” states Statistics Canada.

Increasing payroll employment has coincided with the continued relaxation of public health measures. The remaining capacity limits have been affecting the business operations, generally lifted by the first two weeks of March 2022.

The Canadian provinces like Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Nova Scotia were the only ones to experience the change in paid jobs. However, in March, Quebec’s hospitality sector has soared with 20,400 new paid jobs in food services and accommodation.

In March, the service sector added 103,400 jobs that are growing by 0.7 percent. The job growth in food services and accommodations had 46,200 paid employment, and the retail trade rose by 14,800 jobs that same month.

For more information, check out the Y-Axis blog page…

New opportunities for retail jobs in March

In 2020, even before the pandemic, 9,600 job opportunities were listed in the retail sector in March. The rest of the provinces except Manitoba and Ontario had more jobs in the retail sector in March compared to February.

Compared to all the sectors, utilities have recorded the highest increase in their average weekly earnings every year. This is followed by finance and insurance and professional, scientific, and technical services which increased by eight percent.

TFWP and IMP are the two main ways to hire Foreign Nationals

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) and the International Mobility Program (IMP) are the two fundamental ways employers hire foreign nationals.

The Global Talent Stream (GTS) is a part of the TFWP. Under normal processing situations, it can complete the Canadian work permits and visa application procedures within two weeks.

The employers are permitted to invite foreign nationals to occupy the available positions through the Express Entry System, which accepts immigration applications online.

The eligible applicants must submit an online profile, known as the Expression of Interest (EOI), under a participating provincial immigration program or one of the three federal immigration programs, to the Express Entry Pool.

Express Entry: New PNP draw invites 589 candidates

Express Entry PNP Draw, May 25 (1)

The new PNP draw invites a total of 589 candidates. As the July intake is near, the government resumes the FSWP and CEC candidates through the PNP draw. On May 25, Canada held a new round of invitations for the draw by inviting 589 Express entry candidates to apply for permanent residence.

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) asked only candidates who have already received a provincial nomination and have a high cut-off score. Candidates with a minimum score of 741 were invited to this draw. The Express Entry candidates who already have a Provincial nomination from a Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) will automatically have 600 CRS points get added to their base score.

This new PNP draw was slightly larger and had a lower cut-off score than the last draw. The previous Express Entry draw, which happened early this month, had a minimum CRS score of 759, and IRCC invited 545 PNP candidates only.

FSWP and CEC candidates to resume in July through Express Entry draws

According to Canada’s Immigration Minister Sean Fraser, “Through Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) programs, Express Entry will invite candidates by this early July. Most New Express Entry applications will be processed within six months”.

Since December 2020, the Express Entry draws for FSWP candidates were paused. The IRCC has paused the draws temporarily for the candidates to allot the resources and reduce the Express Entry backlog, which worsened during the pandemic. The CEC applicants were also put on hold since September 2021. Currently, the processing time for these programs is more than six months as a target for IRCC.

According to IRCC’s statistical data from April, IRCC formed 156000 permanent residence decisions between January 1 and March 31, 2022. Compared to the 2021 data from the same period, this is two times more.

There has been observed a decrease in the number of newcomers who immigrate using the Express Entry pathway in 2022 and 2023. IRCC has planned to welcome more than 110000 immigrants using Express Entry by 2024.

Express Entry:

Express Entry is the application management system for Canada. There are three most popular immigration programs:

  1. The Canadian Experience Class,
  2. The Federal Skilled Worker Program, and
  3. The Federal Skilled Trades Program. 

A points-based system is used by Express Entry, the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS), to give the ranking to a candidate’s profile. The Express Entry pool already has PNP candidates eligible for at least one of these programs. The candidates with top scores will receive an Invitation to Apply (ITA) and can then apply for permanent residency ship. When the application is submitted, an IRCC office will review the application and will make a decision. The biometrics are taken and set up an interview or request for more documents.

When the application gets approved, IRCC releases a Confirmation of Permanent Residence (COPR). And then, applicants can complete the arrival process. If the applicant is outside Canada, they get a chance to access pre-arrival services to help themselves with the initial steps of settling in Canada.

The cut-off for the selection procedure is based on the time, date, and monthly allotment of the Matrix submission, occupation demand, and cap. The rank of the Matrix score is more significant if the need for a specific profession is more.

The minimum is not a guarantee but just evidence of the invitation that has been issued. The invitation will not be issued if the system detects any active applications or an ACT nomination that was received earlier.
