4. How will Canada Federal Elections 2019 affect Express Entry Program?

The Federal Elections 2019 to be held in Canada in October will affect the migration. The policies can change with a different government in the center. Presently, the ruling party is Liberals, and they have policies which are different from American and European systems.

Immigration is always a prime agenda during elections, and this time, it is no different. Liberals have supported high immigration over the years, and it will continue in the coming years if they resume their term. Conservatives, on the other hand, are less enthusiastic over a large number of migrations in the country. They are known for introducing strict laws in the past.

Let us look below for the present political scenario and its implication for the foreign aspirants –

 The main political parties –

There are three main political parties in the country. Apart from this there is also a Green party, which is yet to have a solid ground. The core political parties are -

•    Governing Liberals

•    Conservative party of Canada

•    New Democratic Party (NDP)

What are the transitions undertaken in the time of Liberal?

The liberals have been faithful to their name and have introduced significant changes in the relocation model. Desiring aspirants were offered a friendly model through the changes.

Some of the prominent contributions for a smooth process include –

•    High immigration targets. There are more than one million PR holders expected in the country by the end of 2012.

•    Reduced processing time for visas

•    Reformed medical admissibility rules.

•    A large number of ITAs issued through Express Entry Program. ITA in 2016 were 33,782, ITA in 2017 were 86,023 and ITA in 2018 were 89,800

•    Fewer points for a Job offer in CRS calculation for Express Entry. Although changes were introduced later and Arranged employment score was increased to 200 points.


What will happen if the Conservative Party wins in October?

The Conservatives were the ones to introduce Express Entry as the part of meeting the labor market demands. The scrutiny process under the Conservatives is slightly harder than under the mandate of liberals. Thus, if they come to power, then they can bring the following alterations-

  • They can avoid setting targets for migration.
  • A different ranking system in the CRS model.
  • The visa processing time can be increased.
  • Adequate resources for language instructions.

What is the stand of the New Democratic Party (NDP)?

The New Democratic Party (NDP) is a good supporter of visitor visas. Further, they have also emphasized on how the landing cost needs to be reduced. This will make migration easier and smoother.

Some core ideals that needs to be known are -

•    It is the left in thought and emphasizes on health care for Canadians.

•    They have never formed a government.

•    However, they favor immigrants and focuses on the family being together.
