From 2106, there have been two significant changes to the system. These reforms are meant to address the weaknesses that had put more emphasis on a job offer as was spelled out in Express Entry’s Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).

There has been improvements and reactions which is missing in the OECD member countries. Most other countries have not shown this kind of aggression. Mr. Liebig further commends Canada for showing the way since systems do not last long.

He went on to add that the Express Entry is more specific since it provides for a detailed evaluation of essential factors that an immigrant must meet before admission, These may include passing the English or French proficiency test and having work experience.

There is evidence that Canada’s immigration program has had new changes in the recent past compared to other countries. The acceptance is because it is well managed and benefits Canada. The provincial nominee programs have enhanced the market dynamics. Canada has spread out these benefits to other provinces through the provincial programs or the PNPs

This system has enabled equal distribution of skilled migrants to the country and also substitute the federal government selection process. OECD recommends an increase in the selection process carried out by the Express Entry program.

The report also recommends the scrapping of the Federal Skilled Trade Class and having one single criterion for eligibility based on the Comprehensive Ranking System. The Express Entry applicants with a license should be allowed to migrate with a short term visa for their licensing. The OECD agrees that this would make the system more accessible. There should also be a pilot program for the provinces that target to plug in the gaps in labor supply.
