Canadian Government continues to improve the efficiencies of its immigration program, and plans to admit record-breaking numbers of immigrants under its popular Federal Skilled Worker program [FSWP] in 2012. This increase, along with the consistent focus on economic immigration over the last 6 years, promises a quick and smooth passage of the immigration applications from qualified individuals. It also makes Canada’s immigration program, the top attraction for best global talent and capital. Transcend Consultants is prepared to service the increased demand from the aspiring immigrants in the coming months.

The Department of Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has made plans to accept even more immigrants in 2012 under the economic immigration programs. The economic immigration programs include Federal Skilled Worker program, Business immigration programs and such other programs.

In its report to the Parliament of Canada, CIC has indicated that it admitted over 280,000 immigrants in 2010. This is an increase of over 11.3% over the previous year, and is highest no. of immigrants in the last 50 years. Roughly 67% of those are economic immigrants, about 40% of that as Federal Skilled workers. The report promises to increase the target range for Federal Skilled workers by about 10,000 in 2012.

In a recent speech, the Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister, Hon. Jason Kenney expressed his optimism and positive outlook about the program specifically, and about the Canadian immigration in general.

“The government’s number one priority remains the economy. We recognize the importance of immigration to our labour market and we value the contributions of skilled immigrants who add to our international competitiveness,” said Minister Kenney. “We are committed to facilitating the arrival of the best and the brightest to our country.”

CIC completed an extensive evaluation of the FSWP in 2010, showing that the program is working well and selecting immigrants who perform well economically. The report found that 89 percent of FSWs were employed or self-employed three years after landing. Moreover, 95 percent of the employers surveyed indicated that FSWs were meeting or exceeding their expectations. The evaluation indicated a strong continuing need for skilled immigrants in Canada.
