Note: this text sent to CIC as a response to the minister’s general request of advice in improving federal skilled worker selection process.

Given the admirable decision made by Canadian Immigration Office to modify the federal skilled worker selection system, Canpars Immigration Services, INC. with cooperation of a team of experts and benefiting from experience gained by working on hundreds of immigration files, is going to give some suggestions in order to improve the system. These suggestions are based on three principles as follows:

  • First, the changes which will finally lead to the selection of more useful and efficient labour force for Canadian labour market so that the main goal of the federal skilled worker program will be better fulfilled and the increasing needs of the Canadian labour market in the recent years will be focused on;
  • Second, increasing attention to the adaptability of the applicants and their family members in order to facilitate the effective entrance of the immigrants to the Canadian community, and decrease the negative consequences of the crises of the first year of entrance and the government’s problems;
  • Third, accelerating the process of examining the files based on the conditions of the applicants;

Therefore, a set of suggestions has been developed in Canpars whose practical results can lead to increase of at least one (and mostly more than one) of the above goals. These suggestions are as follows:

About the language point

The decision to specify the minimum point required for the files to be accepted is admirable but not sufficient. In the current system, the same calculation method is applied for all kinds of professions, i.e. the immigration ministry has the same expectations from a skilled worker specialized in medicine as from a crane operator, but we know that this is not based on the realities of the labour market. For example, a doctor or a university professor needs to be proficient in writing, but a cook or a crane operator does not need that level of writing skill or their abilities to speak do not need to be as high as a financial consultant.

Suggestion 1: The required professions should be categorized into three (or four) language skill levels based on the realities of the labour market (i.e. the professions with high, medium, low requirements) and for each group, an independent ranking system should be determined in terms of language skill level. In this way, for example, a crane operator with an average of 6 in IELTS (and based on the subset of skills) may get the highest language point.
