Expression of Interest (EOI): complementing human capital with labour market demand
    • Since the introduction of IRPA in 2002, CIC’s permanent economic programs have primarily focused on the selection of labour migrants with high levels of human capital
    • Research shows that this approach leads to greater resiliency, and better outcomes initially and over time
    • However gaps remain
    • Though performing better than earlier cohorts, many immigrants take several years to catch up to the Canadian-born (many never do)
    • CIC data shows that skilled immigrants who come with arranged employment have better outcomes than those who come without
    • Occupational screens through Ministerial Instructions have gone some way to combining occupational and human capital criteria (hybrid model)
    • Expression of Interest (EOI), adopted by New Zealand in 20013 and Australia in 2012, will allow CIC to address human capital and occupational needs in a more systematic way
  • The goal is to deliver a faster, more flexible system, that responds to Canada’s economic needs and produces better skilled immigrant outcomes
where eoi takes us an agile immigration system
Where EOI takes us: an agile immigration system
  • Move from the passive receipt of applications to the active recruitment, assessment and selection of skilled immigrants
  • Prevents backlogs: matching intake to application processing capacity and levels targets
  • Offers more choice, flexibility and precision in skilled immigrant selection: through increased employer role in selection, potential for better outcomes, improved labour market responsiveness
  • Over the long-term, better outcomes as immigration better matches labour market needs
eoi the basics
EOI: the basics

A new electronic 2-step system to manage economic immigration will be launched in January 2015.

  • This system is not a new program, but rather, a new application management system to support current economic immigration programs.

Employers with valid LMOs (when required) will play an active role in the immigration process:

  • By providing a valid job offer, an employer will ensure their candidate is invited to apply for permanent residency and benefit from priority processing through the Expression of Interest system.
  • Employers will also have direct access to relevant applicant information required to make a hiring decision.

This system is based on key success factors:

  • Human capital (language, work experience, education)
  • PT nominations reflecting regional labour needs
  • Having a job offer upon arrival in Canada

Employers will have a new and direct influence in the immigration system

*Upon receipt of completed application

step 1 expressing interest
Step 1: Expressing Interest
  • Candidates will complete an expression of interest form online, profiling their skills and experience.
  • Candidates who meet entry criteria will be entered into a pool.
  • This pool will be constantly refreshed as new candidates enter the pool and others leave.

Entry criteria will reflect human capital characteristics that are key to successful outcomes, including: language skills, work experience and post-secondary education requirements, for example.

step 2 invitation to apply
Step 2: Invitation to Apply
  • CIC will rank candidates from top to bottom using a transparent human-capital based system.
      • Human capital characteristics include language, work experience, education
  • CIC will invite only the best candidates to apply to immigrate to Canada.
  • CIC will automatically invite candidates with valid job offers – or a PT nomination – to apply for permanent residency.

All EOI applications will benefit from 6 month or less* processing once complete and submitted.

*Upon receipt of completed application
