Even when an IT professional has a Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score that is below the Express Entry’s cut-off, they can still become permanent residents in Canada by getting a provincial nomination. It enables them to get an extra 600 CRS points that help them move up the list to get an invitation to apply for permanence residence.
In Canada, there are various provincial nominee programs whose focus is on tech skills. For example, Ontario’s new Tech Draws enables the province’s Immigration Nominee Program to select Express Entry candidates who have skills in six IT professions.
Another is the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program (MPNP). It has made getting an invitation to apply for provincial nomination effortless. This is by reducing its language requirements for candidates with computer networking skills down to a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) 5; from 7.
Global Talent Stream
With the Canadian Global Talent Stream in the state, organizations can get temporal foreign workers skilled in IT. Some of the professions that it covers include web developers and designers, computer programmers, software, and computer engineers. Since it began operating in 2017, it has managed to hire more than 24,000 workers.
Getting talented tech employees in Canada is crucial. As Council of Canadian Innovators’ executive director, Benjamin Bergen, said in an email, it will help companies in the state to grow internationally.
