The Government of Canada is about to launch Express Entry in January 2015. It is a great new tool that can help you with your hiring initiatives and will offer you an additional option as you build your workforce.
Use Express Entry to hire a skilled foreign worker
If you are unable to fill a position in your workforce with a Canadian or permanent resident you can consider permanently hiring an experienced skilled foreign worker through Express Entry.
Citizenship and Immigration Canada is launching Express Entry on January 1st, 2015 to manage applications for permanent residence in certain economic programs including the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, the Canadian Experience Class, and a portion of the Provincial Nominee Program.
Express Entry will place qualified candidates in a pool. If you are unable to find Canadians to fill available jobs, you can connect with eligible foreign workers in this pool through Job Bank. If you offer them a permanent job, there will be no Labour Market Impact Assessment fee for a permanent residence application.
