System to get economic immigrants into Canada faster set to launch

OTTAWA -- The Conservative government′s overhaul of Canada′s immigration system hits a milestone Jan. 1 with the launch of a new system for selecting economic immigrants.
The Express Entry program is a mostly-computerized process which uses a set of criteria to assign a ranking to those interested in immigrating to Canada under the skilled worker program, skilled trades program and Canadian Experience Class program.
Though the government has long used a points system to determine who gets to immigrate, the new program is different in that it automates the process -- and it also gives a big points boost those who already have a job lined up.
 
The long-term goal is for the system to be used as a match-making service of sorts, connecting Canadian employers with people who can fill open jobs for which no Canadians are qualified.
"Express Entry promises to be a game-changer for Canadian immigration and Canada′s economy," Immigration Minister Chris Alexander said earlier this year.
"It will revolutionize the way we attract skilled immigrants, and get them working here faster."
